Temporary exhibitions


The museum is especially interested in the everyday life of Montrealers and in their life stories. Temporary exhibitions promote the city, its inhabitants and their lives. Our temporary exhibitions stand out in their community and social approach that focuses on the memory of Montrealers.

Explosion 67. Youth and Their World

Explosion 67. Youth and Their World

From June 16, 2017 to September 2, 2018

Arranged in evocative spaces, this immersive exhibition will recapture innovative, illuminating moments of Expo 67 through memories of the event that are remarkably vivid and occasionally shatter our expectations – memories recounted by all sorts of people who took advantage of this formative experience during their youth. It will also be an opportunity for those who did not see Expo 67 to get a feeling of what it was like to be there, and to be young in Montreal toward the end of an unforgettable decade.
