• Musée des Beaux-Arts: Canada’s first museum devoted exclusively to the visual arts opened in 1912. Along with works by old masters, it has an important collection of Québécois and Canadian art. In 2017 it became the 18th largest museum in North America, with the opening of a new pavilion. Temporary exhibits have included shows on the musical symbolism in works by Marc Chagall and the fashion designs of Jean Paul Gaultier.
  • Musée McCord: Exhibits here are compact, but there are always a half dozen or so, making for a satisfying trip. Permanent shows explore the history of Montréal and the role of clothing to establish identity among members of First Nations. Temporary exhibits have focused topics as varied as actress Grace Kelly, toys, and the costumes of Cirque du Soleil.
