The McCord has a very good collection of Inuit and First Nations items. Allow about two hours to see the collections.

I love touring museums when I travel. The McCord museum has a few nice exhibits that are, but it is a small place you can tour within a hour. I didn't think it was worth the admission price.More

The McCord Museum was an excellent space. It's the perfect size for a visit that doesn't drain you for other activities. The exhibits were beautifully curated and thoughtful.

T.R: Cirque du Soleil exhibits in Museums, worth it? Well.. (0 Replies)
Yes this is s kind of trip report since I went to Mtl (don't live there at the moment) to do a few errands and visit some things around. As many regulars on the province forums knows I am a big Cirque du Soleil fan but a critical one, I don't buy everything they do without being critical. Since the two exhibitions are on for a very limited time I think that this better than writing a review. So the town is completely circus now beacause of the first circus festival, called "Complètement...More

Montreal trip observances (4 Replies)
Hi! Just got back from 6 days in Montreal and wanted to share my trip. I never posted here but read voraciously all the questions/comments weeks before and it helped me a lot. I have bad knees and the advice given regarding 'easier' routes to walk to Old Montreal (down St Urbain) and the warnings about the not-handicap-friendly stairs/escalators to get down to the subways helped. I also requested a chip & pin credit card and was thankful that I did - just easier not to have to worry about...More

Great report an advice. You certainly saw a lot of the city. As to the airport it is an unknown science, sometimes it takes 20 mins other times it takes hours. It is a mystery.

Help plan Wed nite (6 Replies)
Hi--continuing to plan our 4 nite stay in Montreal for the end of June. Found out that the McCord museum (90 treasures exhibit) is free from 5-9 pm on Wed, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (terracotta warriors exhibit) is discounted from 5-9 pm on Wed nite. Which of these do you think we should get to, or can we fit both in? Where would you suggest that we eat? Best way to travel between the two if both? The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has a restaurant but supposedly it is...More

Fine arts would be best. The old and modern wings are linked by underground tunnel. It sounds like your definition o expensive and mine are different. There are plenty of food options nearby. You could try il cortile nearby, a mid price restaurant on sherbrooke st. They have a small courtyard off Sherbrooke.
