    Exploring the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts was a highlight of my trip. The museum’s extensive collection is a testament to art’s diversity and beauty. From classical masterpieces to contemporary works, there was something to captivate every art lover. The museum’s layout is easy to navigate, and the staff was helpful in providing insights into the exhibits. The temporary exhibitions added an extra layer of excitement to my visit. The sculpture garden was a serene oasis in the heart of the city. Whether you’re an art aficionado or a casual visitor, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts offers a captivating cultural experience.

    We visited on a rainy day and as a consequence there were lots of families. However, it didn't feel crowded and we got to see all the excellent exhibits.
    This is worth a visit if in the area.

    Spent close to 3 hours here. Well-presented history and archeological findings of Montreal. Learned a lot!

    Went mid-week and the museum (luckily) was not crowded.

    Particularly enjoyed the temporary exhibit about Egypt - Three Millenia on the Nile.

    This is a quite small expo in a unit within a shopping centre so its open when the centre is. Fun to see all the celebrities and national costumes. Not well sign posted so you need look out for the address - 1455 Peel.

    Superbe installation. The bugs installation was amazing. The presentation if the different species was simply amazing. So many beautiful colours and pleasantly disgusting bugs. The butterfly section was so peaceful.

    I’m not giving 5 stars because there were not many live specimens and maybe a little more guidance would be great throughout the visit to offer insights.

    This looked like such a wonderful science centre but unfortunately it was so full of hundreds of children in groups - I assume holiday clubs, that it made it impossible to have a go of many of the attractions. Instead we went downstairs to the Tim Horton's hockey exhibition which was far quieter and spent our time there. This was excellent! Really informative and lots of interactive exhibits to keep our family entertained. Would love to visit on a quieter day to really have the full experience of the science centre.

    We visit Holocaust Museum in every city we visit. This one clearly was put together with care and with love. There's always so much to learn and to keep us on our toes when we say "Nevr again"!!

    The steel net grabbed my attention. The exhibition was great with a lot of educational purposes about the protection of the environment. I think this museum is more for kids than adults. One thing that can be improved is the access on the top of the building, where some parts are closed due to the malfunction of the stairways, but great experience overall.

    Picture a fully-featured museum of natural history ... and then condense it down to its absolute essence ... and the result is the Redpath. Even the walk towards it is a marvel. Definitely a museum worth seeing!

    McCord Stewart Museum on Sherbrooke Street in Montreal offers a good perspective on Indigenous garments and way of life. The artifacts and clothing are well displayed and some nice touches such as a blanket made for a dog which was amazing. Though it is not a large Museum it does make for a good way to spend an hour or two.

    Pleasant planetarium show and OK exhibition. Lie on the beanbags for the best experience of the show.

    Amazing street art gallery. You will be surprised by their friendliness and their willingness to give you all the information about the artists.

    Very thorough guided tour experience which we did in French (they have English language tours too!) I personally would have loved to linger a little longer in certain places to read the signage, or examine certain items ore closely (especially in the attic!) but such is the nature of a guided tour.

    Lovely to take a moment and reflect on our Filles du Roy ancestors who stood in the same place hundreds of years ago (both my husband and I have several in our family trees)

    Nice gift shop with a wide selection of books and items from local artisans. The garden was thriving and the plants well identified . We did not eat on site during our visit.
