Montréal exposed


The history of Montréal is fascinating and eventful. By developing exhibitions on that topic, our museums allow us to discover the multifaceted stages of its evolution. That’s how the public was able to enjoy: 

  1. Scandal! Vice, Crime and Morality in Montréal, 1940-1960 and The Hidden Face of the Mountain at the Centre d’histoire de Montréal;

  2. The Beatles in Montréal and Lives and Times of the Plateau at Pointe-à-Callière;

  3. Venture into the New World at Maison Saint-Gabriel, on the arrival of 800 Filles du Roy in New France;

  4. Audacity and Perseverance: the Legacy of the Oblates O.M.I at Écomusée du fier monde, tracing the history of Saint-Pierre Apôtre parish in Ville-Marie;

  5. Plotting from Above – Mishka Henner and Montréal Aerial Survey at the McCord Museum;

  6. The Berliners of Montréal at Musée des ondes Émile Berliner, on the development of sound technologies, including by RCA Victor, a key innovation in the last century.
