This place has some interesting art. If you know a lot about art and have hours to kill....this is your place. If you don't know anything about art (like me), you'll have a better time at a science or history museum. But overall this is a nice place to spend a day but be warned that chances are you'll be standing there thinking.....I have no idea what I'm looking at.
Absolutely one of the best art museums in the world! It's spacious and brings the finest artists to you. And there's often a special exposition going on - including some free to the public, like the Moving Dunes in the summer/fall 2018: see picture.
Are you in town for a week or only for the day? This place is a must if you want to see what Montreal have to offer. Big and free admission for those age under 30 for the permanent exhibition. You only need to pay if you want to see their limited time exposition, which is always worth it. My favourite was Mapplethorpe! Go and enjoy.
Fantastic arts museum. It is a large complex, the building across the street is also part of the museum and they have an underground tunnel connecting the buildings. They have a lot of famous artists such as Picasso and Monet. Definitely recommended, but plan to be there for several hours to walk through the whole museum.
Fantastic place where you can spend days in awe and wonder admiring beautiful work of art from the Middle Age, Renaissance, Modern Age, a feast for the eyes. Taking guided tours is also a feast for the brain as you learn the history behind paintings and the artists. A must-see. Very little parking around; better get there by public transit.
