Coup de théâtre: I founded Montreal!

May 1 to September 3, 2018

Old Montréal and Old Port

Using a bold approach, the exhibition will take a new look at the historical and spiritual pillars of the colony called Ville-Marie, which grew to become Montréal.

Through portraits of little-known or memorable figures, visitors will come to understand the unique challenges involved in founding our city. This exhibition explains how the search for founders reflects the concerns of individuals or a whole society in different eras. And at the end of their journey, visitors will be asked who they think Montréal’s real founders were.

Are you up for the challenge?
