Special activities

The Centre d'histoire de Montréal offers special activities every weekend this summer.

Model of Montréal in 1745

Saturdays and Sundays, from 10:00 to 12:00

Since 2015, the Centre d'histoire de Montréal team has been updating its scale model of Montréal in 1745.

This meticulous and far-sighted work draws on several skills: history, cartography, topography and the craft of model-making.

Come see our specialists at work and ask them questions about their work and the history of Montreal at that time.
