I'm glad this was included as one of the Montreal Passeport attractions because otherwise, I would have felt it was expensive for what you get. I had read so many reviews talking about how amazing this museum was and I think my expectations may have...More

It was a 15 minute walk from the Dome to the Museum. It was a little hard to find. The museum currently contains 2 exhibits: one on the history of the fort and one on Expo 67. We had an hour and toured the Expo...More

This museum primarily covers the history of Quebec and Montreal with reading panels and artifacts. It is housed in an old fort on Parc Jean Drapeau. Currently, there is an additional exhibit commemorating 50 years of Expo 67 which is worthwhile to view.

With a spare day in Montreal and having visited all the bigger museums I schlepped over to the Stewart more out of a lack of options than anything else. And boy was I glad I did. The walk through the park on Ile Sainte-Helene was...More

Easy enough to get to on the rail network but the number of exhibits was a bit small. You certainly learn plenty about Montreal, Quebec and the local history but for what they could do, it just felt a bit on the small side.

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The
mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of
the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space
still retains its inherited carnival character. A
wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins
des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked
wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks,

Yes, the metro lets off on the island. It's about a 15-minute walk through a lovely park to reach the museum.
