Hey!

 

I didn't know about that expo! I'll definitely go there this summer. Haven't gone to Stewart Museum for at least 10 years!

 

Thanks for the info. (as one of the few quebecers on this forum, I should have known ;) )

Installed in an old fort (early 19th C.), it's a beautiful museum too!

Thanks for the tip, Hans. I'll try to make the drive to Montreal sometime to see it.
