Voluntary contribution for your admission ticket and additional guided tours at the Museum

Did you know that Paul de Chomedey sieur de Maisonneuve and Jeanne Mance founded Ville-Marie on May 17, 1642? To mark this historic date, Pointe-à-Callière is holding a special day at the Museum, letting you choose how much you pay for admission!

Special guided tours will take you through the Where Montréal Began exhibition in Fort Ville-Marie all day long.
