A beautiful museum both inside and out. This museum is well worth a visit for both art lovers and the casual visitor.
Excellent and varied collections w/permanent Chihuly glass structure gracing the facade. Fun contemporary exhibits on basement level.
I really liked all the different exhibits at this museum. They have pieces from centuries ago, as well as some very recent pieces. I also liked how easy it was to find your way from one exhibit to the next. This is also a great place to go if you are on a budget. Visitors under 30 do not have to pay to see the permanent exhibits.
With one of the largest art collections in the world, the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal is the biggest and probably most well-known Montreal museum. This Montreal art mecca is spread out over four pavilions and a striking sculpture gallery. If you're looking to fully immerse yourself in local art, check out the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion where you can see art created by the early Canadian settlers or admire Serge LeMoyne's quirky pop art. If you're more of classicist, the Jean-Noël Desmarais Pavilion has a beautiful collection that spans from the middle ages to impressionism and beyond.
