I went to Écomusée as one of my first stops during a three day stay in Montreal. It was a Wednesday night, so quite quiet and I had most of the place to myself! I got a great intro into what the building used to be - a public baths for a number of people without baths in their own homes. The permanent exhibit about workers lives and conditions in early Montreal industry was really interesting and well done. It was cool to read about some parts of history that the bigger museums don’t always explore. Plus, what a beautiful building! Definitely a stop anyone should make if they have an additional 1-2 hours during their visit to the city.

This small museum is never going to be a top tourist destination. But if you are interested in learning how the working people of Montreal have lived, particularly during industrialization, this is worth a visit. Short walk from the Sherbrooke station.

I stopped here on the first night of my four day trip to Montreal. It's not something that would necessarily be on the radar of the casual tourist, but if you are very interested in the neighborhoods of Montreal, or an Architecture/Art lover, it's worth a visit. It's located in the Village, a bit off the tourist path, but that's a good thing if you like to explore. It's a really interesting little building as one of the former city baths - the pool serves as a lecture space, the lower level is an art gallery, and the upper level is a series of displays on working class life. We visited on a Wednesday night as we typically try to plan one cultural activity each night, visit lasted about 45 minutes, and it was free. Exhibits were only in French, but the staff gave us a good introduction, and have a pamphlet that translates everything.

We were at the Ecomusee du Fier Monde for the wedding ceremony for my cousin and his partner this past May long weekend in Montreal. It is a converted bath house with an exhibit about the working class I believe. My French is not great so I understood some of it but not all. We were there for the ceremony so the musee itself was second fiddle. It was perfect for the ceremony and gathering at the end, good acoustics and it was a beautiful ceremony and beautiful weekend.

Thank you for this great review! You are right, our permanent exhibit is about the history of the neighborhood and its working class.

While everything was in French, the receptionist was very helpful in giving an overview and translating major items. The building, a converted bath house, was very interesting.
