CREATIVE CITY: JOURNEES DE LA CULTURE 2012

The city’s big museums are always a draw, with plenty of family-friendly activities and guided tours (some free, some at discounted prices). See the vast collections at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, including En Masse’s black-and-white mural-like art, as well as free screenings of films from the International Festival of Films on Art.
