We read about the Expo 67 exhibit at the Stewart Museum in the daily newspaper - it began in late April right around the time of our trip. We thought the exhibit was very well done. The video from the expo was especially interesting. We...More

With a spare day in Montreal and having visited all the bigger museums I schlepped over to the Stewart more out of a lack of options than anything else. And boy was I glad I did. The walk through the park on Ile Sainte-Helene was...More

Easy enough to get to on the rail network but the number of exhibits was a bit small. You certainly learn plenty about Montreal, Quebec and the local history but for what they could do, it just felt a bit on the small side.

The main exhibit on the history of Quebec and Montreal is wonderful. The "Curiosities" exhibit is simply one of the best I have enjoyed for its thought-provoking selections and its description of the collections called "Curiosities"

Had some time so we went to visit this charming museum and had a nice couple hours to delve into the history of the first people to settle the area.

We came to see curiosities. Were surprised by a CAA discount (hooray!) and the beautiful location. Parking in the park is expensive, but the museum offers partial rebates. Curiosities is a greats how, worth the visit. The permanent collection is well set, and an interesting...More

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The
mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of
the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space
still retains its inherited carnival character. A
wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins
des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked
wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks,

Yes, the metro lets off on the island. It's about a 15-minute walk through a lovely park to reach the museum.
