"Chateau Ramezay" Château Ramezay - Historic Site and Museum of Montreal Tip by yooperprof
Château Ramezay - Historic Site and Museum of Montreal, Montreal: 7 reviews and 15 photos
Historic home and museum of Quebec's French past, the Chateau Ramezay is of interest in all history buffs and those who like to see the past recreated. Inside, a self-guided tours brings guests through a series of public and private rooms as they might have looked in the 18th century, which this was the official residence of the French governor of Quebec. Outside, in the summertime, costumed "interpreters" present stories of the past in a fascinating and accurate manner.
Interesting trivia: Benjamin Franklin stayed in this house when he visited Montreal in 1776. He was on a mission to try to persuade Quebeckers to side with the rebellious colonists in their struggle against the British king and army. Without much success!
