Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
Since its founding 130 years ago, this museum has put together one of the best collections of fine art in North America, with more than 25,000 objects in all. The Musee des Beaux-arts de Montreal (Montreal Museum of Fine Arts) moved to its present location just before World War I. The Jean-Noel Desmarais building holds most of the temporary exhibits while the permanent collection lies in the Benaiah Gibb building across the street. The museum also stages special programs such as Wednesday evening lectures, noontime and evening concerts, and films.
The collections were very good but not as extensive as I'd hoped for the museum of such a wonderfully diverse, cosmopolitan city. Some renovations were being done so maybe that contributed to it.
I'd go again though.
I love the museum and I'e been there several times. The permanent exhibits are amazing and the temporary shows are half price on wednesday evenings. Nice thing to do in the middle of the week, followed by a latte and some dark chocolate at Vasco de Gamma on Peel.
