Pointe-à-Callière, where Montréal began, offers itself up as the perfect birthday gift for its own 25th anniversary and Montréal’s 375th birthday!
In 2017, Pointe-à-Callière will be one of the key sites for Montréal’s 375th birthday celebrations, thanks to its rich and varied program of activities. The highlight will be the opening of a new historic site, the Fort Ville-Marie – Québecor Pavilion, and access to Montréal’s first collector sewer. The Museum will be marking a quarter century this year, along with presenting four temporary exhibitions, displaying archaeological remains and offering over one hundred activities revolving around Montréal history. And to top it all off, the Museum will be giving its visitors a real birthday present: free admission to Montréal’s birthplace and to all its exhibitions for one month, from May 20 to June 20.
In addition to this month of free admission for everyone, anyone who is celebrating his or her 25th birthday, like Pointe-à-Callière, will get in free all year long, with proof of age.
Another birthday present: every month, a lifetime membership to the Museum will be awarded to a visitor who has shared a photo taken at the Museum on Instagram, with the #pointeacalliere hashtag.
