Get inspired by our lists built around a theme, and experience Montréal to the hilt.
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.
