It’s 1803 and the fur trade is at its peak. The tension between the Montréal-based North West Company and the British Hudson's Bay Company is palpable. When Alexander Gordon, a stockholder of the North West Company, had a fur warehouse built at Lachine, he knew its strategic location on the trade route would be advantageous.

Feel the magic of this warm, interactive and humorous exhibition. The film The Making of a Country reveals the history of the fur trade from past to present.

Since the fur warehouse is located in a scenic setting on the shores of Lake St. Louis, take the opportunity to enjoy a moment of pure relaxation.
