History and Memory
Our collective past is a mosaic of the history of Aboriginal peoples, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and society's major discoveries, among others. All have fed our imagination and will forever be part of our individual and shared memory.
The History and Memory permanent exhibition offers an historical journey that takes visitors from the Aboriginal era to the present day. The almost 500 objects, documents and rare books in the exhibition are showcased on two floors of the Museum. Key themes such as the Reformation period and religious wars, the adventure of living in New France, the Enlightenment, navigation, maritime trade, industrial revolution, and the Patriots rebellion are all portrayed. The focus is also on the history and heritage of Île Sainte-Hélène.
Finally, the fully restored award-winning model displaying the fortifications of Montreal offers visitors a one of a kind interactive experience that combines historical analysis with illustrations from the Stewart Museum collection.
