After 2 years of being under renovations, the Stewart Museum finally reopened to the public on June 29th, 2011. The Stewart Museum is located in Parc Jean-Drapeau.
The featured exhibition displayed at the museum is called History and Memory. The exhibition describes the history of Montreal and displays over 500 artefacts, images, archival documents and early maps. History and Memory explains key historical moments such as the Protestant Reformation, Maritime Trade, the Industrial Revolution, the Patriots Rebellion and living in New France. Furthermore, the exhibition focuses on the history and heritage of Ile Sainte-Helene. Ile Sainte-Helene is located right outside of downtown Montreal and was named after the wife of Samuel de Champlain in 1611. Samuel de Champlain is known as the Father of New France and the Founder of Quebec City. The exhibit also features the famous fully-restored interactive model of Montreal’s fortifications. The Stewart Museum does an excellent job at bringing together local, national and world history.
The Stewart Museum is open Wednesday to Sunday between 11 a.m and 5 p.m and is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
