Get inspired by our lists built around a theme, and experience Montréal to the hilt.
Located in the heart of a natural location unique in an urban environment, the Stewart Museum celebrates the influence of European civilization in New France and North America.
Ivory, faience, brocade, silver, skins, parchment... all these materials hand crafted by masters weave a time line where five centuries of political events, scientific experiments and cultural life unfold.
The Museum occupies the British fortified depot on Île Sainte-Hélène, a 19th century military construction. Both historic and modern, the site features a glass tower offering a remarkable view of Montréal. A little-known episode of Montréal’s history, the Fort of Île Sainte-Hélène held 400 Italian merchant seamen and civilians as prisoners of war during the Second World War, from 1940 to 1943.
Upon reservation, you may participate in one of the two outdoor tours: The Fort on St. Helen’s Island or From the British Arsenal to Expo 67.
