The exhibition Paris on Display invites visitors to explore the boutiques of 18th century Paris in an intimate atmosphere. Thanks to effects that modify one’s sensory perceptions, visitors discover new ways of seeing fabulous artefacts made by the City of Light’s most experienced craftsmen. In addition, a virtual reality experience transports visitors to the 18th-century streets of Paris around the Notre Dame Cathedral.
This tour offers a fascinating panorama of Quebec history from the 16th to the mid-19th century. The exhibition reveals our past, from the first inhabitants of the banks of the St. Lawrence River to the birth of Canada. Quebec’s collective memory, marked by the influence of European civilizations and various intercolonial wars, is reflected by outstanding artefacts from the Museum’s collections. Maps, engravings, scientific and navigational instruments, as well as objects of everyday life tell us about the events and cultures that led to Quebec society today.

Relive a little-known episode of Montreal’s history during the Second World War. From 1940 to 1943, the Fort of St. Helen’s Island held 400 Italian merchant seamen and civilians as prisoners of war. The Stewart Museum invites you to participate with family and friends in a new escape game. You’ll suddenly find yourself locked in one of the rooms in Camp S/43! To escape, you’ll have to look for clues, bribe the camp guards, and find keys and a map for the tunnel. May the best team win!
This tour is offered with or without escape game.
