After reading some of the reviews here, I was not sure what to expect. But this museum was by far the highlight of my trip! I was lucky to catch the screening of 'the clock', and it was fantastique! I enjoyed the other collections too, so if you are a contemp art lover, do not miss this museum! It is... More

I always make it a point to visit a contemporary or modern art museum whenever I'm in a city fortunate enough to have one. So this is not my first time around the block. This was intended to be the piece de resistance of our visit to Montreal, and despite the lukewarm reviews, I was still excited to be going.... More

With a student ID, admission is only $10 (regular adult admission is $14). I went with a friend on a Friday afternoon, and it was not very crowded. The museum itself is pretty small but houses quite an impressive collection. The overall aesthetic of the museum is gorgeous and really keeps the focus on the art. Some of the film... More

We visited on a Free Friday night. Special exhibit was interesting. Not crowded and you could easily view the art.

Which ever city I visit, I always try to explore at least one museum, since I love contemporary arts, and it was connected to Montreal's underground city, it was an easy choice to come here! I really enjoyed the exhibit "A Matter of Abstraction" which features talented local artists! I would definitely recommend this museum and since it's not that... More

A very brief and small museum with a complete ban on any visual recording. Poorly posted and staff terse.

This museum is one of the best of its kind. Every one of their expositions are very interesting, at a very nice price. There is even a children's area with workshops! This is an amazing museum, and is very recommended for people who enjoy any kind of museums.

This was a great place to visit. They had an interesting Disney Exhibit that we really enjoyed. They had an auto-tour which made it a little easier.

We have a great appreciation for museums and as folks who get around quite a lot (live in San Francisco, get to NYC,LA and Chicago once a year at least plus elsewhere), this is a very weak museum. There is a certain introduction to Quebecois artists but overall the collection is unfortunately (we really looked forward to visiting this museum)... More

$12 a person was a bit pricey. We saw it all within in hour. Expected more. Nice works of art, just not enough for the price.
