Last chance to visit the Centre d’histoire de Montréal in the old fire station: Reserve your tour for the 2020-2021 school year before November 1, 2020!

The museum will close the fire station to the general public on November 29, 2020, but will continue to receive groups until March 31, 2020, as long as they reserve before November 1, 2020.

The Centre d’histoire de Montréal will become the MEM - Centre des mémoires montréalaises (in French).

The CHM believes that understanding your society, the place where you live and your family through history can be exciting!

By considering the needs of students — whether they are children, teens or adults — the CHM creates fun activities that are adapted to different clienteles. The CHM offers classroom activities, educational materials and exhibition tours guided by our team of professional guides so that the museum experience can be “historic” and positive for everyone. Our facilitators’ vivaciousness and sense of humour, ability to get a group’s attention and listening skills ensure a memorable experience.
