Located in the heart of a natural location unique in an urban environment, the Stewart Museum celebrates the influence of European civilization in New France and North America. Ivory, faience, brocade, silver, parchment... Handcrafted by masters, these materials weave a time line where five centuries of political events, scientific experiments and cultural life unfold.
The Museum occupies the British fortified depot on Île Sainte-Hélène, a 19th century military construction. Both historic and modern, the site features a glass tower offering a remarkable view of Montreal.
The Stewart Museum is closed since February 16, 2021. Its collection has been integrated with those of the McCord Museum since the merger of the two museums in 2013.
