  • This was an unexpected delight--a cultural gem that's definitely worth a visit. The exhibits were expertly done: informative, complex without being too academic so accessible. The content flowed well from room to room and kept us engaged for far longer than we had expected. The building itself is a historical jewel that's interesting to view. We got to go on a free Sunday and it surprisingly was not packed. Also visited the Fine Arts and Contemporary Art Gallery of Montreal and this museum was the best of the three!
  • Great building, very few exhibits related to architecture, actually quite sad. I’m glad I visited when it was free, otherwise I would have seriously asked for my money back. I wanted to see the engineering and design behind structures likes buildings and bridges and subways, but instead I sat through a documentary about the psychological aspects of rooms and areas- yawn!!!! I hope my return to Montreal shows more promise at this location. Honestly learning about how the CCA building was made would be more interesting than ANY of the exhibits they presented.
