The number of major collections of major artists was impressive. We saw the Calder exhibit which was extensive. Their collections included modern, contemporary, and traditional artists. Was one of the highlights of my first visit to Montreal.

I spent about half a day here. It is very good, although not as much of the type of art I am especially partial to, but there was a lot of variety. I highly recommend.

Aside from the above mentioned, there are tours available and on the weekends there are fabulous family activities. My grandsons, 6 and 7 have a wonderful time. Right now, the Calder exhibit is very family friendly.

Not everything was to my taste but that's okay becuase there's no shortage of things to see. They've made some impressive expansions over the past twenty years and now cover three corners of Sherbrooke and du Musee. Top marks to the curators- the art is...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
