Like to go fast? Visit the Musee Gilles-Villeneuve while touring Montreal - Image

Travellers with a need for speed who are planning on visiting Montreal in the near future may want to consider heading to the Musee Gilles-Villeneuve in Berthierville. The facility is named after the famed Formula 1 driver who was killed in an F1 race in Belgium. 

The Montreal Gazette reports that the museum has brought in a lot of crowds over the years, as more than 250,000 people from at least 30 countries have stopped by the museum, which opened in 1988. 

Although the exhibit is located 70 kilometres of Montreal, it makes for a great excuse for family travel, as the displays could have something for every member of the group no matter how young or old. 

The museum's website reports that during the summer, the facility sponsors a kids camp that allows children from ages 11 to 16 to learn how to race go-carts, which can be a great adventure for young ones with a passion for racing. This can be a great opportunity for those who are on family travel.
