Montreal Museum of Fine Arts & McCord Museum Tour
In the company of a museum guide, you will go through hundreds of works, including several recent significant acquisitions that have entered the Museum’s permanent collection of Quebec and Canadian arts. This heritage collection is presented chronologically, from the top level downwards. Each of the pavilion’s six levels highlights a historical period for which a specifically designed presentation enables a better understanding and appreciation of Quebec and Canadian arts.
You will also visit the McCord Museum, Montréal’s social history museum inaugurated in 1921. The museum embodies the vision of a passionate collector, David Ross McCord, whose abiding wish was to shed light on the history and cultures of his country and thus bring its people together. It is a museum of social history that celebrates life in Montréal, past and present: its history, people, and communities. The exhibition “Indigenous Voices of Today: Knowledge, Trauma, Resilience” bears witness to the still unrecognized knowledge of Indigenous peoples in Quebec and Canada.
