Information on the activity
Dates to come
Built in 1824, the Fort on St. Helen’s Island has had many vocations throughout its life. Through an outdoor tour with a Museum guide, explore the history of Montreal’s largest military complex, which was in turn an armoury, a British military base during the patriots’ rebellion, an internment camp during World War II, and finally a cultural and heritage site.
Did you know that the Fort on St. Helen’s Island is known as one of Montreal’s haunted locations? For Halloween, the Stewart Museum is offering a special version of the tour, sprinkled with mysterious and spooky stories about the site of the Museum.
Recommended for adults with children aged 9 and older. Limited places (12 people per tour)!
For the “Journées de la culture,” the tour is free of charge. The Admission fee for the museum remains.
