Montréal en Histoires has reinvented the history circuit and gives your springtime strolls through Old Montréal a rich new character. Cité Mémoire has created a majestic work of art composed of twenty tableaux projected onto elements of architecture and nature. Discover important figures who shaped the history of the metropolis and what new features Cité Mémoire has come up with. An initiative of Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon in partnership with Michel Marc Bouchard.

Starting in May

To mark the 375th anniversary of Montréal, Cité Mémoire will unveil the Grand Tableau Cité Mémoire, a 35-minute display of images of music projected onto the monumental walls of the courthouse. On the Champ-de-Mars, every evening at the same time, a recap of more than 375 years of history, major events and tales awaits. While you’re there have a look at the three new tableaux by Cité Mémoire that feature Jeanne Mance on Saint-Paul Street, the Great Peace of Montreal near the Pointe-à-Callière museum, as well as the Expo 1967 hostess on McGill Street.
