Pointe-à-Callière Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History

Have you seen the new exhibit Building Montréal? The virtual historical characters of this exhibit, presented since April 2019 won the CMA Award for Outstanding Achievement in the new media category, which rewards innovation in accessibility, engagement and participation by way of virtual publications, virtual exhibitions, online educational resources, social media initiatives and other technologies. Pointe-à-Callière offers through this exhibit a rich and mysterious environment for an entertaining day out at the museum with family! While in 1992, the Museum innovated by introducing its first virtual historical characters, in 2019, it incorporated the latest developments in voice recognition, artificial intelligence, and real-time 3D animation to deliver a completely new kind of experience. The three characters take visitors on a journey through time, back to the marketplace in 1749. Visitors can listen to the characters speak or even talk to them about their reality and daily life at the time. An incredible piece of immersion that promises to teach you about a number of topics.
