March 20, 2013 ─ Montréal museums offer cool and exciting stuff for everyone to enjoy, no matter your age or passion!
Montréal’s museums offer the privilege of participating, via traditional and new media, in dialogues between the present and the past. The Pointe-a-Callière, Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History takes visitors back to where it all began. The Château Ramezay showcases over 500 years of history with dynamic presentations including multi-media portrayals of historical figures in six languages.
A trip to Montréal opens up just what inspires (or inspired) artists from here and abroad. The Montréal Museum of Fine Arts features a world-class collection that includes world cultures, ancient and contemporary European art, decorative arts and design, a rare collection of Tiffany stained glass as well as Québec and Canadian art. The Musée d’art contemporain is Canada’s premier museum dedicated exclusively to contemporary art, with nearly 7,600 permanent works. It stages original ways to discover art, such as the innovative Friday Nocturnes du Mac, a splendid mix of music, cocktails and modern art.
Science and Nature
The largest natural science museum complex in Canada, Montréal’s Space For Life invites us to rethink the ties between human beings and nature, cultivating a new way of living. It regroups four exciting nature museums to study flora, fauna, planets and much more in one convenient and entertaining location: the Botanical Garden, the Insectarium, the Biodôme and the all-new Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium. Down in the Old Port, the Montréal Science Centre inspires, astounds, educates and entertains children of all ages on a range of topics related to science and technology.
