This is not a huge museum, but there's something about the permanent exhibits that shows real thought. It's just really well laid out. Each gallery tells a story. Well worth a visit and a return visit. High point for me - a really stunning piece...More

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
