Pointe-a-Calliere takes into account and showcases archaeologically significant artifacts from each period in the city's past. The archaeological locales it ensures have processed one of the biggest archaeological accumulations in Canada.

In association with various schools, it leads an exploration program on the city's history and paleontology, and its accumulations incorporate antiquities and reports. The Museum's mission also includes the city's architecture and mechanical legacy. It endeavors to make travelers and the local people cognizant of their distant past, their legacy of today and yesterday, and everybody's role in safeguarding and advertising the legacy of the city.

Since it opened, the Museum has put forth more than thirty displays on topics identifying with nearby and global prehistoric studies, society, history and legacy, and multiculturalism. Supplementing this display system are training programs and social exercises that present school and college crowds and the overall population to different parts of paleontology. This important location should certainly be placed on the itinerary for all tourists who are visiting the city for the first time.

  • Take some time to examine all of the displays.

  • I may be biased but I love strolling along museums. This is home to a permanent exhibit of the history of Montréal as well as varying special exhibits. The place is well maintained. You won't get lost because information can be found easily. The staff are friendly and very willing to help you with any concerns or questions.

  • This could have a very boring archaeology museum as usual. Remains of old building, fragments of ancient pottery, some random parts of a musket, a jar, or an arrow, a boring underground sewer system. However, with all the creativity and romance of the museum stuff, curators, archaeologists or whoever designed it, this place is beyond remarkable. In short, I understand everything! In other words, they have gone a long way to bridge the gap between our cognitive capability and that of archaeologists, which most museums may not bother to care. Enjoy the museum yourself. Expect some readings but they have tried many ways to represent the same information. The guided tour is a very good start and then you can review some details by yourself. For little ones under 3, I don’t think it will work for them. My 3-year old will really enjoy the pirate ship at the end of the museum, I think Section F?

  • This museum should be on your list of things to do in Montreal. There is a lot to learn about the origin of the city here and it's presented in a very elegant way and the price of admission is very low. The Queens of Egypt exhibition (ending November 4th) is put together nicely and it's well managed by the museum staff (letting a certain amount of people through at any given time). If you're a fan of ancient Egypt or enjoyed the King Tut exhibition that's been going around the world (currently in L.A. I think) then this is a nice addition to that experience.

  • Very fun. Lots of activities and full of facts for young and older kids. My 12 years old daughter, 6 and 15 years old nephews had so much fun. They commented that it was " way better than the one in Georgia". Great for the whole family.

  • It is a very beautiful museum where adults and children have fun. I loved the 20-minute theater show. I highly recommend this site.
