Lonely Planet review for Écomusée du Fier Monde
This magnificent ex-bathhouse explores the history of Centre-Sud, an industrial district in Montréal until the 1950s and now part of the Village. The museum’s permanent exhibition, ‘Triumphs and Tragedies of a Working-Class Society, ’ puts faces on the industrial revolution through a series of excellent photos and multimedia displays. The 1927 building is the former Bain Généreux, an art-deco public bathhouse modeled on one in Paris. Frequent modern-art exhibitions are also held here.
