Travel back to the mid 19th century and get a glimpse of bourgeois life at the time at the Sir George-Étienne Cartier National Historic Site, a meticulously restored residence commemorating the life and work of this renowned politician, lawyer and businessman.
One of the main architects of the Confederation, Sir George-Étienne Cartier was a pivotal figure in Canadian politics. His dedication to progress drove civil reform, industrialization and the development of transportation infrastructure, including the Victoria Bridge (inaugurated in 1859).
The only Victorian interior open to the general public in Montréal, this site on Notre Dame Street is comprised of two neo-classical houses with an adjoining coachway. The East House now features several permanent exhibitions on Cartier's achievements. The West House has been faithfully restored to recreate the sumptuous bourgeois decor typical of the 1860s. Listen closely to the soundtracks playing in most rooms to learn some of the family’s most intimate secrets!
Guided visits are available upon reservation. Special events are held during the holiday season.
