The new Fort de Ville-Marie building will be part of the Montréal Archaeology and History Complex, a major development project that will incorporate the Montréal Museum’s current buildings: the Éperon, the Ancienne-Douane, Youville Pumping Station and the Mariners’ House.
The Fort de Ville-Marie project is located in Montréal’s Old Port on the site of the city’s foundation. Its objective is to showcase the remains of the Ville-Marie fortress (1642) as well as those of Callière’s Residence (1688). The basement and ground-floor spaces are dedicated to the discovery and interpretation of the archaeological remains unearthed to date, while the upper floors house collection and support spaces.

The transformation of the eastern portion of the William collector sewer, Montréal’s first waste water collector, will establish an underground link with Pointe-à-Callière Museum’s existing buildings and constitutes the first step in creating a network that will serve as the backbone of the Montréal Archaeology and History Complex. The project obtained a LEED Gold certification and helps mark the 375th anniversary of the founding of Montréal.
