Walk in the steps of important historical figures the likes of Benjamin Franklin and cross the threshold of the Château Ramezay, a prestigious residence from the 18th-century that recounts over 500 years of history through numerous exhibits and extensive multimedia circuits.
A portal to Montréal’s past and the first building in Québec classified as an historic monument, the Château Ramezay offers insight into the events of the pre-contact Indigenous era to the 20th century and demonstrates how our history was shaped by the Native People, the French, the British and the Americans.
A permanent collection of over 30,000 objects and an array of temporary exhibitions, intermingled with multimedia portrayals of historical figures telling fabulous tales about this centuries-old manor, bring 18th century New France to life for a modern audience.
Built in 1705 by Claude de Ramezay, then Governor of Montréal, the residence was surrounded by a vast garden and fruit tree orchard. Today, the formal French colonial-style Governor’s Garden is a marvellous place for a stroll. Divided into three sections – a kitchen garden, an orchard and a pleasure garden -, it features hybrid species that are genetically very close to those grown in Ramezay’s day.
