About these ratings

Montreal's most prestigious museum has been building its collection of fine arts for well over a century. Feast your eyes on an impressive assortment of Canadian and international works, including pieces by such renowned artists as Rembrandt, El Greco, Renoir, Cézanne and Picasso. 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 Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Wednesdays, 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 13 to 30 will have to pay $12 CAD; these prices also cover access to the rest of the museum.
