EXPO 67: A WORLD OF DREAMS
From April 26 to October 8, 2017
To mark the 375th anniversary of Montreal and the 50th anniversary of Expo 67, the Museum will present this new exhibition which draws on the technological innovations featured at the pavilions and the dreams that became a reality at 1967’s World Fair, a historical global event that marked the memory of Quebeckers and the public worldwide.
The exhibition will plunge visitors into a circuit that includes, among others, immersive installations erected as an array of worlds to discover and explore. Presented on St. Helen’s Island, the original Expo 67 site, the exhibition will bring this memorable adventure back to life while winning over visitors from all generations. This exhibition is produced in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
From May 2018 to March 2019
In the 18th century, Paris was already recognized as a capital of European fashion and luxury, where travelers flocked to find table services, cutlery or timepieces. This new exhibition showcases a selection of objects from the most fashionable French factories and artisans of the time.
