Montréal, December 17, 2019 – A new free interactive exhibition is about to open at the Port Centre! Located at the Port of Montréal’s Grand Quay in the heart of Old Montreal, starting this Saturday, December 21, the All aboard! exhibition will offer an interactive, educational and fun way to learn a bit more about port activities and trades. The exhibition is designed for everyone age 7 and up.
This interactive exhibition invites visitors to a physical and digital adventure to discover the shipping cycle of goods from their point of departure to their final destination. Your mission is to import or export a cargo shipment within a time limit. All aboard! Get set to: plan your trip; sail at sea and on the St. Lawrence; load and unload your cargo; move it inland from the hub of the intermodal chain; respect the environment… and much more!
The goal of the exhibition is to discover port activity through eight entertaining and informative stations. This is accomplished by getting the goods to their destination as quickly as possible and meeting the challenges that arise along the way.
A complementary historical exhibition is also on display at the Grand Quay, on the ground floor in the corridor of Terminal 1, where visitors can discover the Port of Montréal’s rich history, which is interconnected with the city’s history. The exhibition comprises: Scale models of ships representing the types of vessels calling into the Port over time and up to the present day, plus a model of the iconic Titanic; A large mural illustrating the history of freight transport under various themes; A large mural on passenger transport
In addition, a timeline on the Promenade d’Iberville (the green roof) retraces the major stages of the Port of Montréal’s development, key players and innovations over time. Find out more about this completely free of charge exhibition HERE.
