The MMFA is one of Canada’s most visited museums and the eighth-most visited museum in North America, boasting more than 1.3 million visitors. The MMFA's original temporary exhibitions combine various artistic disciplines – fine arts, music, film...more
This museum is 5-6 separate buildings joined together under ground. Most of the exhibits are small and not in depth and you have to find the elevator in each section. Nice area around museum. Wish I had picked one of the other museums to go...More
Museum is definitely worth a stop while in Montreal if you are into modern and impressionist art. While we were in Montreal a Picasso exhibit was on display featuring some of his impressionist works and some of his personal collection of African and primitive art....More
Fabulous show at a wonderful museum, Wish I could go right back. The show is now over, but it was so good and so comprehensive, including many wonderful paintings, sculpture, photography and artifacts. Bravo! The museum has many things of special interest to children. Make...More
Well the Picasso exhibit has come and gone now, but it was a curator's tour de force juxtaposing Picasso's art with art from Oceania and Africa. Truly remarkable exhibit.
Otherwise the three buildings that make up the Museum offer the visitor an outstanding permanent collection...More
Museum is a short walk from Omni Hotel. It is housed in two buildings. There was a special Picasso exhibit while we were there. Permanent collection is good. An all day visit would be required to see most of the exhibits.
Spent multiple hours here and we were not alone. The museum encompasses three different buildings all connected by an underground passage way. I have been to museums with better collections of art but few that were curated as well or presented as nicely. The museum...More
Beautiful gallery with indigenous art and sculpture represented . Local Canadian artists were of particular interest to me as we knew little of them . They were bold and interesting and great to see the influences of both British and French art genre in these...More
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
professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
