The MMFA is one of Canada’s most visited museums and the eighth-most visited museum in North America, boasting more than 1.3 million visitors. The MMFA's original temporary exhibitions combine various artistic disciplines – fine arts, music, film, fashion and design – and are exported around the world. Its rich encyclopedic collection, distributed among five pavilions, includes international art, world cultures, decorative arts and design, and Quebec and Canadian art. The Museum has seen exceptional growth in recent years with the addition of two new pavilions: the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion, in 2011, and the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace, in 2016. The MMFA complex includes Bourgie Hall, a 460-seat concert hall. The Museum also houses the Michel de la Chenelière International Atelier for Education and Art Therapy, the largest educational complex in a North American art museum, enabling the MMFA to offer innovative educational, wellness and art therapy programmes

We liked the special Picasso exhibit and many of the pieces in the permanent collection. A bit tricky to figure out how to get around the various wings.

Good museum. Permanent exhibits free on Thursdays for seniors 65+ and under 30's. Special exhibits still extra.

We spent most of our time in the Picasso/ Africa special exhibit. Really educational and masterfully put together. We also visited the main collections and saw Rodin, impressionists, and many others. Enjoyed.

We go there almost every year on vacation and we have been pleased by their special exhibits and permanent collections. This year there was an exhibit focusing on the influence of African art on Picasso that was fascinating.
