Originally built in 1705 as the residence of a former Montreal governor, Chateau Ramezay Historic Site and Museum of Montreal now stands as a historic building and educational museum. The building has offered refuge to important figures in volatile times, including the Continental Army when Montreal was seized, and Benjamin Franklin as he endeavored to raise troops in the American Revolutionary War. As the area's oldest private history museum, and a National Historic Site, it is no surprise the structure has filled with thousands of vintage items. Browse through about 30,000 objects, including manuscripts, artworks, and furniture dating up to the 20th century. Take the time to explore the garden, a wonderful display of 18th century landscaping.

  • We visited this museum in our trip to Montreal. The reception personnel were friendly and helpful. The museum itself worth visiting. It took less than an hour for us to see all the rooms, the architecture for a residential place looked nice. There is a tiny garden behind the building as well.
  • Exceptional, (besides the unwelcoming front desk person), the actual place and experience was most informative and interesting. Highly recommended. I don't often give a 5 star rating
