Black Watch Highlanders Regimental Museum & Archives

Lonely Planet review

The presence of the legendary Highlanders is usually reserved for holidays and official ceremonies, but military buffs can delve deeper at this small museum of military memorabilia that includes medals, insignia, munitions and small arms from prior to 1969. The fanciful building – a faux Gothic castle, complete with turrets – also houses a national military archive and takes numerous requests for personnel documents. Few Montrealers know about this place because it never advertises and almost never opens.
