Interiors - Arsenal, Montreal, Canada


For over a century, 2020 Rue William was the location of the Marine Works shipyard. Nowadays, the industrial complex is a groundbreaking gallery, which hosts exhibitions of works by Canadian and international contemporary artists in an 80,000-square-foot space. The vast venue houses an exhibition room, commercial gallery, studio and private collection, and has been host to events like Sotheby’s auction previews and Montreal Fashion Week shows.

Housed in a former Olympic stadium, the Biodome is an iconic Montreal attraction and a must visit for families. The sprawling complex is divided into four exhibits, each dedicated to one of the ecosystems found in the Americas (Tropical forest, Laurentian forest, Saint Lawrence Marine Eco-system, Polar). Animals roam each habitat, but the penguins in the Polar facility are a highlight, especially for younger children.

Indagare Tours: Mile End

Fuse New York City’s West Village with Brooklyn, and you might get something akin to Montreal’s vibrant Mile End neighborhood. Artistic and youthful, the area northeast of downtown is one of the city’s most lively. This is mainly due to the lighthearted spirit that floats throughout the hip coffee shops, one-of-a-kind boutiques and intimate restaurants that line Mile End’s leafy streets. A number of Montreal’s most iconic restaurants are located here, and a food tour is a fun way to explore the diverse neighborhood. Indagare members can contact the Bookings Team to arrange this tour.

Parc du Mont Royal

At nearly 500 acres, Montreal’s largest park may not rival the size of New York’s Central Park (842 acres), but it does boast beautiful trails and look-out spots, including the Chalet du Mont Royal, which also houses a nice museum focused on Montreal history. It’s a lovely retreat from the city, and on a clear day, you can see miles from the summit. Incidentally, the park does share something with its NYC counterpart: the original Mont Royal was also designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (though most of his plans never came to fruition due to a city-wide depression shortly thereafter). One of the most scenic paths is named after the landscaping genius.
