Musee Des Beaux-arts De Montreal, Montreal Reviews - Write a Review
Heard lots of good things about this museum and it did not disappoint. We spent around 2-3 hours here easily (free admission package). They have 2 buildings which offers multiple floors of exhibits. This museum has a variety of art so it can be enjoyed by many who may have different tastes.
It's not the British Museum or the Guggenheim, but it's still really good. This museum was very diverse. It has a little bit of everything for everybody. Like Degas? Check. Like post-modernism? Check. Like Reformation era architecture? Check. It takes a good 2-4 hours to see everything, so allow the time to enjoy everything it has.
One of the best museums I've ever been to. Their extensive collection and network of buildings (with an underground tunnel which makes winter visits very easy) is complimented by their extremely helpful and friendly bilingual docents. It's clean, modern, and beautifully curated with some rather unique and innovate ways of displaying some of their historical art collection. This museum was a great stop in our trip. Street parking was pretty easy to find about a block away. Not sure if is a garage? It's right in the heart of Montreal so you shouldn't have any trouble finding parking.
I think it is the best one in canada, the collections are very impressive. The place u could relax yourself and escape from the real world for a while. Art itself is the other parallel world , and much peace and quiet. I do enjoy the time be with Picasso, Monet...Rodin...the master peace is the media of the original artist, which is the insight world. Stay with them, everything suddenly becomes clear...such a wonderful, fantastic , elegant world....
Wow! What a collection... With 5 buildings joined together by underground passageways you can explore everything from works of antiquity to modern pieces. If you get a chance, a tour is worth going on. They really have an impressive display of works, a nice dining area and it's all right downtown.
