Drawing over 1 million visitors annually, the MMFA is one of the most visited museums in North America. Its highly original temporary exhibitions combine various artistic disciplines – fine arts, music, film, fashion and design – and are exported to the four corners of the world. Its rich encyclopedic collection, displayed in its five pavilions, includes international art, arts of One World, decorative arts and design, and Québec and Canadian art.
The Jean-Noël Desmarais Pavilion, designed by architect Moshe Safdie, is recognizable by its modern, imposing glass façade. Here is where you will find the Stephan Crétier and Stéphany Maillery Wing for the Arts of One World (2019), a boutique, a café and a gourmet restaurant. The Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion is home to a rich collection of Québec and Canadian art (including an impressive collection of Inuit art). The Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace (2016) is devoted to international art, from Old Masters to modern art, and to education. The MMFA complex also includes Bourgie Hall, a 460-seat concert hall, as well as an auditorium and a movie theatre.
The MMFA is one of Canada’s leading publishers of art books in French and English, which are distributed internationally. The Museum also houses the Michel de la Chenelière International Atelier for Education and Art Therapy, the largest educational complex in a North American art museum, enabling the MMFA to offer innovative educational, wellness and art therapy programmes.
And upon leaving the Museum, you'll love to stroll in the Sculpture Garden, one of the city’s largest collections of public art.
