Montreal's 370th anniversary celebrations

Pointe_a_Calliere_1749.jpgMontreal celebrates its 370th anniversary on Thursday.  To commemorate the anniversary, 35 museums and organisations around the city have joined together for the first time to highlight Montreal's history from now until the end of the year.

The Pointe-à-Callière museum sits at the heart of that history,  and they'll be offering you free access to the remains of the old city in their archeological crypt in the basement. Louise Pothier is Pointe-à-Callière's Director of exhibitions and technology and an archaeologist.  She spoke with Sonali Karnick about the history of the museum and what's in store for the anniversary celebrations.
