  • If you like art, this is a great place to visit in Montreal. Lots of paintings and masterpieces of Salvador Dali, Monet etc. You can even touch some of this art and feel the time of the epoque when it was made. The place has to be quiet, don’t talk too loud and respect other visitors. A gallery of modern art, just blown my mind
  • It's a nice facility. Not too expensive to get in. If visiting, I would start upstairs in the section about the native population. I got to this after wandering through everything else, so we didn't have much time to really meander about. There is some interesting info about the settlement of Canada and Quebec. The politics area was kind of uninteresting to me, but I guess it has to be in there. All in All, it's just ok
