The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ encyclopedic collection includes more than 41,000 works, and its original temporary exhibitions combine artistic disciplines (fine arts, music, film, fashion, design) and feature innovative exhibition designs. The fall of 2011 saw the opening of a fourth Museum pavilion – the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion of Quebec and Canadian Art – and a 444-seat concert venue – Bourgie Hall – housing an outstanding collection of Tiffany stained glass windows. A fifth pavilion devoted to international art and education will open its doors in late 2016, just in time for Montréal’s 375th anniversary in 2017.
Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on December 25 and January 1. The Collections and Discovery Exhibitions are free throughout the month of December. Major Exhibitions are accessible Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. (at 50 % of the full admission cost).
