Museums (Old Montreal)
Most of the museums in old Montreal are history museum, ranging from the era when Montreal was known as Ville-Marie and was part of the Nouvelle France to the late victorian era and even modern times.
The most interesting museum is the Pointe-à-Callière museum which shows different stages of Montreal's history through archeology. There also other types of museums. For instance, there's a family oriented interactive science center called the Montreal science center in the old Port. There are also some interesting art galleries on St-Paul street.
Some places in the list have symbols next to them, the means that it is a recommanded place, the means that there is a photograph of that place and the means that the place's fact sheet contains a link to their web site.
