AAA Editor Notes

Stewart Museum (Musée Stewart) is on Île Ste-Hélène at 20 ch. du Tour de l'Isle in Jean-Drapeau Park (M: Jean-Drapeau). The museum's permanent exhibition, History and Memory, chronicles more than five centuries of history through a collection of some 27,000 objects ranging from household artifacts to scientific items and military weaponry, plus archival documents, iconography, ancient maps and rare books. Such topics as politics, scientific developments and cultural life from the 16th to early 19th century are explored. Temporary exhibitions also are offered at the museum, which is housed in an arsenal erected 1820-24 by the British military. A four-story glass and steel observation tower affords excellent views of the fort and downtown Montréal. In summer various guided tours of the exhibitions and the historic site are available. Guided tours are available late June to mid-August. Guided tours are available.
