Located just east of St. Catherine Street, the city's main drag for shopping, this is where to find the latest and flashiest the art world has to offer—the museum has displayed everything from conceptual tree-house video installations to abstract murals composed of tiny pieces of cut-up plastic bottles. The permanent collection has over 7,000 contemporary works, with a focus on Québec and Canadian artists (notably Jean Paul Riopelle and Jeff Wall). There are also temporary exhibits from the likes of Janet Cardiff, Edward Burtynsky, and Atom Egoyan. A guided tour (available on weekends and Wednesday evenings) is useful in making sense of it all.

Free on Wednesday evenings. Closed Mondays during the winter.
