Pieces Of Our History
Opened in 1983, The Centre d'Histoire de Montreal (CHM) encompasses a total of 16,000 square feet of exhibition space. Last renovated in 2001, the CHM offers visitors a glimpse into the heart and soul of our fascinating city from the 18th century up to present day. The museum features a permanent exhibition divided into five historical eras and displayed on two separate levels.

What’s Inside
Visitors to this museum located just off Old Montreal's renowned Place d'Youville will find a series of historical models, photographs, objects and artefacts that illustrate the development of the City of Montreal through the ages. Offering a glimpse into our city's amazing past, the items on display at the CHM are pieces of our collective cultural, archaeological and social history that are well worth checking out!

Portal Through Time
As you walk through the great glass doors that overlook Place d'Youville, be prepared to be transported back in time to yesteryears. Run by the City of Montreal, the CHM is also the site of various temporary exhibitions on the top two floors as well as a host of activities and other special events throughout the year. The ground floor can be rented for special functions, as can the multi-purpose room on the first floor.

Don't miss: The "Montreal of a Thousand Faces" display on the second floor features photographs of a variety of colourful characters that have lived in Montreal during the 20th century.
