History

The Just for Laughs Museum was created by Gilbert Rozon, founder of the Just for Laughs festival in the same city 10 years earlier. Opened in 1993, the museum was a venue for all things funny with displays, exhibitions, and a multi-functional space for the presentation of public, private or professional events. The Museum was located at 2111 Saint Laurent Boulevard, Montreal, QC, Canada. Perhaps coincidentally, St-Laurent is the French name of Lawrence of Rome, the patron saint of comedians.

The Museum was affiliated with the Canadian Museums Association, the Canadian Heritage Information Network, and the Virtual Museum of Canada.
