    We had only 1.5 hours so we had to prioritize. The display downstairs is not to be missed. Respectful, informative, and moving history of Montreal.

    Free Walking Tour, Montreal - Darren was our tour guide - he was really knowledgeable and made the tour really interesting. We managed to see quite a few points of interest and each one had history. I can recommend this tour - you will learn so much!

    This is probably the prettiest street in old Montreal. Granted it is touristy but it is still very atmospheric and just reminds you of walking round a major European city.

    A church in the district of Old Montreal in Montreal, Quebec. One of the oldest churches in Montreal, it was built in 1771 over the ruins of an earlier chapel. The church is located at 400 Saint Paul Street East at Bonsecours Street, just north of the Bonsecours Market in the borough of Ville-Marie (Champ-de-Mars metro station).

    Very much enjoyed not only looking at the exhibits but having a go on the many interactive ones as well. Great for families of all ages. Luckily when we went it was not busy and only one school group of little children was visiting but I can imagine it getting busy if several groups visiting which would make it harder to interact with exhibits.

    I only walked a small area but it was a nice experience from the old port toward Atwater market. The Lachine Canal is an iconic gem located in the southwest of Montreal. Its 13.5 kilometer track between the Old Port and Lake Saint-Louis, its waterway, its green urban park, its industrial remains and its riverside activities make this site an experience to share.

    Ok let’s keep it real - it’s a Ferris wheel…..you get on, it goes around, you see the city. You know exactly what you are getting - it isn’t new and the view (while interesting) isn’t like the London Eye. That said - it’s a must do. When touring Old Town it’s a popular stop….the line moved along at a snails pace and we discovered it was because each group (today at least) had their own capsule to themselves. Makes it slow when a single person takes an entire capsule and the group of 5 has to wait. (But hey, was nice to be alone vs in a group of strangers).
    Air conditioned - nice seats, each capsule holds 8 and it was clean.
    Suggest getting the Montreal Passport - gives you admission to this and other attractions (saves $$).

    Bonsecours Market at 350 Rue Saint-Paul in Old Montreal, is a two-story domed public market located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. For more than 100 years, it was the main public market in the Montreal area. Recognized as one of the ten most beautiful heritage buildings in Canada, the Marché Bonsecours is a bustling marketplace that showcases Québec artists, designers and artisans.

    Research the language options in advance to your IMAX visit. We did and we enjoyed every minute of the presentation.
    Refreshing and delicious snack options and refreshments available.
    Enjoyable views and seating options for all in the waiting area.

    The church was free to enter but then there were charges if you wanted to visit the museum so we decided we’d seen enough of old Montreal.
    Still worth visiting this cute church with some amazing stained glass windows.
    Not sure why this is under shopping here, it’s a church and museum!

    This Big Ben replica, built to commemorate sailors lost at sea during WWI, was renowned for its accuracy.

    We walked through the Old Port and enjoyed the experience. There is a lot to see and for many, a lot to do. There are many shops, restaurants, cafes, and the like. And the views are fantastic.

    Just five minutes from downtown, the Clock Tower Beach on the quay of the same name, offers sun, sand and a unique holiday atmosphere.

    The Clock Tower Beach features heaps of soft, silky sand, lounge chairs, colourful parasols and a wooden boardwalk. While swimming isn’t allowed, Located at the base of the Clock Tower, the beach affords a spectacular vantage of the St. Lawrence River, the Jacques-Cartier Bridge, Île Sainte-Hélène and Old Montréal.

    We had a great day at this museum and enjoyed the combination of the dig with the story of the city. There are some gaps in the history story which I wish had been filled. What happened to the old industrial neighborhoods that have apparently been bulldozed? Anyway, it was very interesting. Great for kids because of the multi-media.

    We came with my partner from New York to attend Igloofest! When we arrived we immediately appreciated the atmosphere of the festival. It was certainly very cold but it was really a fun and incredible evening. In addition we took advantage of the hotel package with double room and it was quite accessible
