In 2017, the Montreal History Museums celebrate Montreal's unique past more than ever. They underscore the many facets of its history, its heritage and its legacy thanks to a major awareness campaign emphasizing their mission: to make the history of the city known to all. The OFF375 is their contribution, their vehicle, their window to share authentic testimony they preserve. 2017, over the course of a prodigious year, history is being venerated to make you fall in love with Montreal all over again.
