Montréal, February 11, 2016 – Fragments of Humanity. Archaeology in Québec is the first major exhibition dedicated entirely to Québec archaeology, in which some 350 significant pieces will be featured, celebrating 50 years of archaeological discovery in Québec.
Pointe-à-Callière is proud to present Investigating Agatha Christie, an original exhibition focusing on an exceptional woman whose unusual life and compelling novels left their mark on international literature. The exhibition looks at Christie through her work, her imagination and her world, including archaeology. It is one of the major international events being held to mark the 125th anniversary of the famous novelist’s birth on September 15, 1890.
The co-chairs of the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation’s first major fundraising campaign, David McAusland, partner at McCarthy Tétrault, and Louis Vachon, President and CEO of National Bank, announced today that $13 million was raised for the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation through its fundraising campaign launched in November 2013.
Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Archaeology and History Complex, is proud to have welcomed 151,020 visitors to its international exhibition The Aztecs, People of the Sun, between May 28 and October 25, 2015. This spectacular exhibition gave visitors a unique opportunity to learn about the people who founded the magnificent city of Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztec Empire and the site where Mexico City was built after the Spanish Conquest in 1521.
Pointe-à-Callière invites visitors of all ages to come learn about the cultural origins of Halloween and related beliefs, with its popular Jack O'Lantern tour. It’s the perfect setting for scary stories! Children accompany Jack on a humorous and whimsical trip through an authentic archaeological site in search of some strange but friendly characters, who will share all the magic and enchantment of this great autumn celebration.
