The Beatles in Montréal is an exhibition on the Montréal stopover of this legendary British group that revolutionized pop music around the world, and that also had a profound influence on musical trends that took root right here in Montréal and throughout Québec. Designed as an exhibition-experience, The Beatles in Montréal uses this musical event as a starting point for an examination of Montréal history and the emergence of “yéyé” music in 1960s Québec.
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.

The Tea Roads is a journey across centuries and continents on ancient roads that climb to breathtaking heights, taking us all the way to modern times. Starting in China, where the little leaves with a myriad of benefits first appeared, and where the three main means of preparing tea—boiling, beating, and infusing—were developed, the exhibition offers up an ancient itinerary that ventures into the realm of poetry and refinement, exploring the love of tea.
