AAA Editor Notes
BMO Financial Group Museum (Musée de BMO Groupe financier) is at 129 rue St-Jacques (M: Place d'Armes), adjacent to the BMO Bank of Montréal's main branch—an impressive neoclassic structure built in 1847—and the corporation's head office. Paraphernalia related to banking, including old coins, paper bills and checks, is on display within a re-creation of an early 19th-century cashier's office. A collection of mechanical piggy banks is featured, along with photographs and other items chronicling the history of Canada's oldest banking institution.
Note: The museum is expected to be closed for renovations until spring 2017. Phone for updates.
Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
