Musée d'histoire et du patrimoine de Dorval

Sara Giguère

Dorval, QC H9S 2E6

Ouvert depuis 2002, le Musée d’histoire et du patrimoine de Dorval a pour mission de mettre en lumière les différents événements et personnages marquants de l’histoire dorvaloise, de la colonisation à nos jours. Situé dans les écuries du Forest and Stream Club – bâtiment construit en 1874 par Alfred S. Brown, magasinier de la compagnie de chemin de fer Grand Tronc et directeur de la Banque de Montréal – le Musée d’histoire et du patrimoine de Dorval allie cachet historique, installations multimédias novatrices et expositions originales pour offrir à ses visiteurs une expérience unique au cœur de l’histoire dorvaloise. Le Musée est divisé en quatre sections sur deux étages : les anciennes stalles, une rareté au Canada, le Hall d’honneur de Dorval, présentant plusieurs personnages qui ont façonné Dorval depuis ses origines, la verrière et sa vue imprenable sur le lac Saint-Louis, et à l’étage, une ligne du temps ponctuée d’artéfacts et d’installations multimédias qui relate les grands événements de l'histoire dorvaloise.
