Fort Lennox National Historic Site - Montérégie
Located on Île aux Noix, in the middle of the Richelieu River, Fort Lennox National Historic Site played an important role in the defense of the country against invaders from the south. This British fortification with its eloquent shape will reopen in June 2023 after five years of closure due to important restoration and conservation work on the built heritage. The site will offer a renewed visiting experience. In addition to activities with interpretative guides, the new exhibition entitled Passages, Experiences of this island will present the human history of this unique place and will uncover the secrets of the imposing building that represents the Fort Lennox barracks. Visitors will also be able to understand the daily life of the service families and the life of the women in garrison, and several artifacts found will tell the story of the soldiers who lived on the island. This summer, your ultimate family getaway is at Fort Lennox National Historic Site. Your journey begins by boating across the Richelieu River to reach all the experiences of this island...
