Temporary exhibitions

Pointe-à-Callière presents two to three new local or international temporary exhibitions every year. They introduce visitors to the history of Montréal, Quebec and the rest of Canada, but also some of the world’s great civilizations. Over the years, the Museum has forged bonds with many leading international museums, who have worked in partnership with Pointe-à-Callière and loaned us items from their valuable collections. The Museum is proud of these privileged dealings that have allowed us to present a wonderfully varied program for our visitors.

Snow is a delightful, invigorating new temporary exhibition on the subject of snow and all its charms and frustrations, love or hate it! Snow is an integral part of our environment, after all, and an inextricable aspect of our nordicity. It shapes our lives for several months every year.
