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.

From October 23rd 2013 to January 4th 2015

The exhibition Lives and Times of the Plateau will look back at the development of this emblematic Montréal neighbourhood, and the innovations stemming from it. Through objects, photographs, film excerpts, literary and theatrical works, and music, the exhibition will showcase the area’s architectural evolution, major social events that took place there, and the many artistic works born in the neighbourhood.

From May 6th to October 26th 2014

Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal’s Archaeology and History Complex, is bringing its visitors an exhibition that will fire their imaginations and take them on an incredible voyage: Marco Polo — An Epic Journey transports visitors to the 13th century, taking them from Venice to China, along a route so astonishing and exceptional that it is still being discussed over seven centuries later.
