Activities and animation



FROM 11:00 AM TO 4:00 PM 

In the early years of the Château Ramezay, Montréal was a military town. To give you a taste of those times, the Anciennes Troupes Militaires de Montréal will be recreating the Compagnies franches de la Marine and the 78th Fraser Highlanders this summer.  Come and watch them parade at the Château Ramezay! You can even take some photos with them!

* Except August 2, 4, 24 and 25 2019

Did you know that nearly 100 volunteers work at the Château Ramezay every day? They give tours of the museum wearing their period costumes and convey to visitors their enthusiasm for history.

On September 23, 2019, from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M., there will be an open house at the Château Ramezay during the recruitment campaign for new volunteer guides.

It’s an opportunity to visit the museum and chat with and enjoy the company of experienced guides while learning about the volunteer programs available. Being a volunteer guide at the Château Ramezay is an opportunity to teach others about history and be part of a dynamic group of enthusiastic people. The Ramezay Guides Associations regularly organizes social activities for its members, as well as dinners and visits to other cultural institutions. Training for prospective guides is provided by experienced guides, who enthusiastically share their knowledge.

Each year, the Château Ramezay welcomes thousands of visitors of all kinds. There are students (from elementary to university level), many groups of newcomers improving their language skills, and an increasing number of Québec and foreign tourists who want to learn more about the history of Montréal and Québec.

If you are looking for an interesting and rewarding way to spend your free time, at the Château Ramezay you’ll have an opportunity to do volunteer work, tailored to enthusiastic personalities.
