Good museum. Permanent exhibits free on Thursdays for seniors 65+ and under 30's. Special exhibits still extra.

Lovely art museum with interesting works. Plan to stay the day to make the most of the admission fee.

We spent most of our time in the Picasso/ Africa special exhibit. Really educational and masterfully put together. We also visited the main collections and saw Rodin, impressionists, and many others. Enjoyed.

Went to see Picasso special exhibit during the Montreal Rock n Roll Marathon. Really enjoyed it. Spots to sit and relax placed throughout the museum.

We go there almost every year on vacation and we have been pleased by their special exhibits and permanent collections. This year there was an exhibit focusing on the influence of African art on Picasso that was fascinating.

Took me 4 hours to see it all but has varied exhibitions including the Picasso and Inuit floor! Lots of variety, some galleries on glass, and furniture! It’s well laid out and I thoroughly recommend it!

The Picasso exhibit was interestingly blended with African and Black Canadian Art to make for a special morning. The Bistro has nice soups, salads and sandwiches in addition to special hot meals. Great coffee too! We did not see nearly everything we wanted to, so...More

This is one incredible show. Many artworks interestingly offset by spectacular African masks. Worth the extra admission fee

Exhibitions are carefully chosen and well guided by professionals. World class fine arts and contemporary art tastefully displayed, frequent conferences, proactive management resulting in very interesting museum, a must if you are culturally inclined, and even if you aren’t.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
