Impressive museum of fine arts which I happened to find when I had an afternoon free to wander. Probably not worth more than an hour or two, but surprising collection. Will try to find some snaps.

The Museum recently underwent a renovation which included a better connection to the building across the road. As a result, there is more space for the collection and special exhibitions. It is one of the best art museums in Canada.

It's free! It also has a wonderful collection. I saw some new Picassos, and a variety of sculptures by Jean Arp that I loved. The exhibition on Napoleon was fascinating, with art, silver, furniture, and clothing he wore.

Before you go, be sure to download the free iPhone app for an audio guide, including musical accompaniment that represents the artwork. They just opened a new permanent exhibit about Napoleon, featuring his famous hat among other artifacts.

For a free-admission art museum, the Museum of Fine Arts is a worthy visit. The museum is centrally located in downtown and easily accessible by Peel and Concordia STM stations. The collections extends through three buildings and includes a sculpture garden. You can find arts from many eras - Renaissance, Baroque, Impressionist, Cubism ... They have paintings by Renoir, Monet and Picasso to list a few. They also have special exhibitions from time to time that's paid admission. The only down side is they are only open on weekdays, which makes it a little difficult for weekend tourists to visit.
