Pointe-à-Callière, a recognized national historical and archaeological site, leads visitors through centuries of history, from the times when Natives camped there to the present day. The Museum opened in 1992, the result of over 10 years of digs. It showcases major archaeological discoveries made on this site starting in the 1980s. Set on a site bearing evidence of over 1,000 years of human activities and on the very birthplace of Montréal, Pointe-à-Callière houses and protects remarkable archaeological remains, displayed in situ with absolute respect for their integrity.       
There will also be an architectural component to this tour where you will explore the vision behind the construction of the main buildings of the museum.
