This is a small museum but it gives you a lot of information on Montreal. This is one of the most reasonable priced museum so if you plan to visit a few museums get a city pass.

This is quite a small museum. On the ground floor there is an exhibition of the history of Montreal. On the first floor there is a current exhibition about expo 67. It is very interesting to hear how this expo changed the city.
