Musée PAC Pointe-à-Callière Museum of archaeology and history – Where Montreal was born – World Wide Panorama

World Wide Panorama, a project from the University of California Berkeley

This is my most recent submission to the World Wide Panorama, shot at the undergrounds of the Musée PAC. “Laid out in 1643 by French colonists as part of Fort Ville-Marie, the first catholic cemetery of Montréal can be seen by visitors at the Museum of Archaeology and History Pointe-à-Callière. Part of an extensive complex of ancient structures, digging sites and layers over layers of history of the Nouvelle-France, all forming the archaeological crypt of the museum, the cemetery is the oldest man-made structure directly associated with the founding of the city.”

Musée PAC, Pointe-à-Callière Museum – the old sewer

Here you can see the vaulted stone tunnel carrying what was once the Little Saint-Pierre River, now a collector sewer dating back to 1832.

The permanent exposition Where Montréal Was Born covers six centuries of history taking you to an authentic archaeological site where you can see the birthplace of the city in the museum’s undergrounds.
