Museum Accessibility

Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Archaeology and History Complex, is wheelchair accessible and accredited with KÉROUL certification for people with reduced mobility and their accompanying support person. Plan your visit by checking the list of Pointe-à-Callière’s accessibility features, produced by Kéroul.

Designated a national archaeological and historic site, Pointe-à-Callière houses architectural remains that are spread out over different levels, meaning that certain spaces are accessible via lift or elevator. The Museum as a whole is accessible to people with reduced mobility, with the exception of part of the archaeological crypt.

Services available at the Museum

Four wheelchairs are available for use, free of charge, for visitors with reduced mobility. The wheelchairs are available at the reception desk but cannot be reserved in advance. Access via the 1st floor; ask the reception staff for assistance.

Five spots are reserved for wheelchairs in the Hydro-Québec multimedia theatre for the Generations MTL multimedia show, which is presented every half-hour.

Free admission is offered to individuals accompanying visitors with a disability (visual, auditory, mobility, intellectual or physical impairment) upon presentation of a companion leisure card (CAL) or ACCESS 2 card at the Museum’s reception desk.

Guide dogs and service dogs are allowed in the Museum’s public spaces and exhibition rooms. The Museum may ask visitors with an accompanying dog to provide proof signed by a doctor or proof that the animal has been trained by a recognized institution (e.g. Mira, Leader Dogs for the Blind, etc.). The owner is responsible for the dog’s behaviour. The Museum reserves the right to ask a visitor and his or her animal to leave the premises if safety guidelines are not followed.
