Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (Musee des Beaux-Arts)
As Montreal’s largest museum, it is amongst the most prominent in Canada. The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is a member of the Bizot Group, a forum which allows the leaders of the largest museums in the world to exchange works and exhibitions so it’s worth a trip. The museum is located on the historic Golden Square Mile stretch of Sherbrooke Street and there is a ‘reading room’ that is the oldest library in Canada dedicated to art.
This is Quebec’s oldest private museum. Visitors can explore five centuries of history, learning from the French colonial influence, represented in the architecture and former use. Take a stroll around the gardens and explore the bend of Canadian-French culture.
