Pointe-à-Callière is mounting 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, to run from December 8, 2015 to April 17, 2016, will look at Agatha Christie through her work, her imagination and her world, including archaeology. It is one of the major international events planned to mark the 125th anniversary of the famous novelist’s birth, on September 15, 1890.
Saturday, August 22, from 10 am to 8 pm
Sunday, August 23, from 10 am to 6 pm
In Place Royale and the area around the Museum
Pointe-à-Callière is pleased to present a major exclusive international exhibition, The Aztecs, People of the Sun. Visitors will have the unique privilege of learning about the people who founded the fabulous 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, Montréal’s Archaeology and History Complex, has welcomed 100,000 visitors since the opening of the exhibition The Greeks – Agamemnon to Alexander the Great last December 12, a clear indication of the enthusiasm this fascinating and never-before-seen exhibition has generated. There are less than four weeks left to see the exhibition in Montréal—that is, until Sunday, April 26—before it continues its North American odyssey, travelling to the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, the Field Museum in Chicago and, finally, to the National Geographic Museum in Washington.
February 18, 2015 to January 3, 2016
Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Archaeology and History Complex, is presenting a delightful, invigorating new temporary exhibition on the subject of snow and all its charms and frustrations, love or hate it!
