Montréal, toute une histoire
From May 3rd, 2017 - Along Saint-Lawrence river, from LMaison Saint-Gabriel to Musée de Lachine
Maison Saint-Gabriel, museum and historic site
An historical and fun tour along the Saint Lawrence between la Maison Saint-Gabriel and the Lachine Museum using a free mobile app, a game, and a series of outdoor panels.

The free, bilingual application of this “memory tour” explains the history of these places, from New France to today, and documents the Saint Lawrence river and the history of four boroughs through old photographs, works, and writings. Close to 50 places of interest have already been identified on the total route of 17km.

This route is divided into areas for those who wish to explore on foot and those who wish to do so by bike but don’t want to go the whole way.

They are identified on a geo-referenced map. The path has two parts: an interpretive route accessed through the bilingual application, which can be viewed or downloaded either in its entirety or in selected areas. The application can also be downloaded on a mobile phone via interpretation panels located on site.

There are twenty signs between the Maison Saint-Gabriel and the Lachine Museum. Two approaches will be proposed for the path: One that is more informative, cultural and historical with audio clips and photos, accessible to all, and a playful one with a quest or a game, ideal for families.

This application is available on iPhone and Android.
