Musée du Fort Saint-Jean
The Fort Saint-Jean Museum presents 350 years of military history on the Royal Military College Saint-Jean site, which witnessed the presence of Amerindian warriors, French and British troops, American revolutionaries and several Canadian units. Situated near the Richelieu River, 40 kilometers South-East of Montreal, this site has been declared a National Historic Site because of the three forts that were built and its importance during the American invasion in 1775 when the fort withstood a 45-day siege under General Montgomery. The Museum presents the history of this heritage site and the presence of all its occupants which is, with Québec City, the only place in Canada where a military occupation remains since the French Regime. The exhibition presents the history through thematic maps, models, uniforms, weapons, artifacts and archived documents.
