Musée de Lachine

Art, history and science museums
Pôle des Rapides

The Musée de Lachine invites visitors to stray off the beaten track to discover the city’s rich history, where the Saint-Lawrence River and the Lachine Canal meet, right near the famous rapids which led to the founding of Montréal.

Here, history and archaeology reign supreme. The museum includes Le Ber-Le Moyne heritage site featuring the oldest ensemble of buildings on the island of Montréal dating back to 1669; a collection of heritage artefacts; a permanent historical exhibition; a temporary exhibition showcasing Lachine’s heritage; and a discovery space on the fur trade in New France.

The Musée plein air de Lachine is a vast outdoor museum showcasing some 50 sculptures dotting the site’s waterfront landscape, René-Lévesque Park and the city’s riverside parks.

Located along the Lachine Canal cycling path only 10 kilometres from downtown, the museum offers a perfect place to stop and rest a spell while out on a bike ride. In the summertime, there’s no better place to take a break, enjoy a picnic, and drink in the scenery.
