The Écomusée du fier monde is dedicated to preserving and showcasing the industrial and working-class history of Montreal’s Centre-Sud neighbourhood.

The museum is housed in a former public bathhouse, which was built in 1927 and is itself a historical landmark. It was established in 1996 as a community-driven initiative to preserve the heritage and collective memory of the neighbourhood. The Écomusée du fier monde serves as a platform for local residents to share their stories, experiences, and cultural traditions.

The museum’s permanent exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the industrial and social history of the Centre-Sud neighbourhood, highlighting the lives and struggles of workers and immigrants. The displays feature artifacts, photographs, and multimedia installations that depict various aspects of daily life, labour movements, and social activism in the area.

In addition to the permanent exhibition, the Écomusée du fier monde also hosts temporary exhibitions, events, and educational programs. These initiatives explore contemporary social issues, engage the community, and promote dialogue on topics related to labour, immigration, urban development, and cultural diversity.

The museum aims to be an inclusive and participatory space, inviting the local community and visitors to contribute their stories and perspectives. It actively collaborates with residents, community organizations, and artists to foster a sense of belonging, empower marginalized voices, and encourage social change.

The Écomusée du fier monde is a unique institution that offers a different perspective on Montreal’s history, focusing on the experiences and contributions of working-class individuals and communities. By preserving and sharing these stories, the museum contributes to a deeper understanding of the city’s social fabric and the challenges faced by its residents throughout history.

Free visit of the museum on the 1st Sunday of the month.
