Pointe-à-Callière is a National Historic Site rising above the actual remains of the city's birthplace, the Place Royale. An archaeological tour takes visitors from the Indigenous People's occupation, to the erection of the first French establishment of the city — Fort Ville-Marie — to the present day. Comprising seven pavilions connected underground, the Museum presents striking permanent exhibitions where history comes to life through the innovative use of new technologies. Pointe-à-Callière also features temporary exhibitions on the history of Montréal and the world's great civilizations, as well as a constantly changing program of cultural activities for young people and families.
