Created in 1992 on the occasion of Montréal’s 350th anniversary, Pointe-à-Callière is celebrating its own 20th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History is opening a fifth building—the Mariners' House—, renewing its permanent exhibitions, and presenting two exceptional temporary exhibitions. Over the course of the year, the Museum is holding 20 not-to-be-missed events in all, and is inviting Montrealers, Quebecers, and tourists to join the celebration.
The big event of the year at Pointe-à-Callière will without a doubt be the opening of a new pavilion—the Mariners' House—located on Place d’Youville. As a new space dedicated to history and archaeology, this pavilion will be the setting for major exhibitions, lectures, special activities, and the Archaeo-Youth Space—a simulated archaeological dig for children and families.
The new multimedia show, Yours Truly, Montréal, presented in an incomparable immersive atmosphere overlooking the archaeological remains, has inspired the creation of a website, yourstrulymontreal.ca, where young people can have fun while furthering their knowledge of Montréal history.
