AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Sitting right in the midst of downtown in the specially designed Place des Arts, Montréal’s 7,000-piece contemporary art collection casts light on the art of Québec and, to a lesser extent, Canada. The museum offers really excellent guided tours in both English and French in the early evening on Wednesdays and on weekend afternoons. The tours make sense of some of the less-obvious artworks and, we find, really add immeasurably to the experience. There are nice places to sit by the fountains outside in Place des Arts if you need a little time to process what you just saw. In summer, festivals take over this outdoor space.
