view web site ›'s insider take:

Located downtown, near the McGill University campus, the Museum of Fine Arts flanks Sherbrooke Street, with a tunnel linking the original 1912 structure to Moshe Safdie's dramatic 1991 stainless steel and glass expansion. The museum's permanent collection encompasses pretty much everything—from Canadian, Amerindian, and Inuit art to Old Masters to contemporary works—but it's not as overwhelming as the Met or the Louvre. There is an especially strong collection of European 20th-century works by Matisse, Picasso, Dalí, Otto Dix, and other modernists. Admission to the permanent collection is always free, but special exhibits are $15 for adults. Recent faves include a Jean Cocteau retrospective, pieces from Catherine the Great's Hermitage collection, and lithographs by Odilon Redon. Tickets are half price on Wednesday evenings, but the scene becomes zoolike during the last two weeks of a popular exhibit.

Closed Mondays.
