Pointe-à-Callière: Moving to a 1960s beat
Pointe-à-Callière is commemorating the only time the Beatles appeared at the Montréal Forum, when the band played two back-to-back concerts on September 8, 1964. Fifty years later, you can listen to the show in its entirety, and you'll be sure to swoon along with the original audience. Don't miss the exhibit's highlight: John Lennon's psychedelic Rolls-Royce! The show runs from March 29, 2013 to March 30,
2014. During your visit, make sure to check out the brand new Mariner's House.
Pointe-à-Callière, a museum recognized as a national historical and archaeological site, is located on the very place where Montréal was founded. Its in situ remains and collections boast hundreds of thousands of objects and documents, and tell the story of the land's successive occupations and the city's history. These artifacts on display in the museum's various exhibits can also be viewed on the Google Art Project Web site.
