Montreal in History

140401_kb1vg_cite_memoire_01_sn635

Here in the New World we tend to forget that we too have a history. Montreal, one of my all time favorite North American cities, was founded in 1642. In the run-up to next year’s 375th anniversary celebrations, Montreal tourism folks have created a marvelous project to remind visitors and citizens alike of the city’s great history. The Montréal en Histoires activities include the stunning Cité Mémoire installations, which includes dozens of projections of historical figures throughout Old Montreal every night beginning at dusk. There’s also a neat multilingual app which allows visitors to use augmented reality to learn more about Montreal’s history and culture.
