Other interesting members of the museum's collection include 18th-century English porcelain, artifacts from World War I and several beautiful pieces of furniture designed by Frank Gehry.
Nestled a few blocks south of Mont-Royal in Downtown Montreal (accessible from the Green Line's Peel and Guy-Concordia métro stations), the Musée des Beaux-Arts is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Wednesday, the museum stays open until 9 p.m. Admission to the main galleries is $12 CAD (around $11 USD) for adults over the age of 30 and free for anyone younger than 30. There is an additional fee to access temporary exhibitions: Adults ages 31 and over will be charged $20 CAD (just over $18 USD), while visitors ages 3 to 30 will have to pay $12 CAD; these prices also cover access to the rest of the museum.
