To discover, see and do...

Located next to the St. Lawrence in the Verdun borough, the Maison Nivard-De Saint-Dizier, a museum and archaeological site, is one of the oldest rural houses still standing on the Island of Montreal. It was built in 1710, and stands on the most extensive prehistoric archaeological site on the Island, occupied by Natives more than 5,500 years ago. The permanent exhibition looks at the story of the house and the site, discoveries during the various archaeological digs, and the complete restoration of the building. The Maison Nivard-De Saint-Dizier museum and archaeological site also offers a series of activities that promise a unique experience for all visitors.
