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

Really enjoyed the special exhibit on Picasso. Great collection and museum buildings but maybe a little confusing. Definite must on to do list in Montreal.

By Canadian standards, the permanent collection is pretty darn good. By world standards. not so much. However, they do an excellent job with the collection they have by contextualizing the works.

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.

Very nice museum although a bit confusing to get from building to building via the underground connections. The Picasso exhibit is worth seeing.

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
