Always interesting and amusing, but nothing new if you followed Aislin, if not then a treat. Brief..you can be out in 40 minutes(and I read everything!) Maybe overpriced

Went to see Aislin exhibit, for 50 years of drawings I expected more drawings available. I also found the video interview could have been longer. The rest of the museum had two other exhibits, one on expo 67 fashion which was ok and the other of no interest to me. An unsecure cloakroom available for coats but rental lockers available....

I have always enjoyed my visits to the McCord. On my last visit, the featured exhibit was in celebration of the 50-year anniversary of Expo 67 featuring the uniforms worn by hostesses of various Canadian and foreign pavilions. Also featured was an exhibit of Aislin editorial cartoons. Well worth the visit! The gift shop is small but they have some... More

We truly enjoy niche museums. The museum is located in a quiet area, but finding the museum will enlighten the visitor to the current displays. Also in the area are fashion museums and shop displays of various designer clothes through the ages. Truly worth the walk and visit.

On a whim we searched for Museums and found that the McCord was having an Expo 67 display. Winner for us. Great museum and a great display. It is now on our 'check every visit' list.

The McCord Museum mainly showcases the social and cultural evolution of Montreal. There are two permanent exhibitions: the one located on the main floor focuses on the First Nations people of Canada through their garments and culture; the second one located on the first floor focuses on the history of Montreal through objects, pictures, and paintings. They have numerous temporary... More

Because we were planning to have dinner with a friend in NDG, we were unable to take advantage of the free entry after 5 pm available on Wednesdays. The McCord is a historical museum, and its exhibition of the photography of William Notman offers a superb view of the later 19th and early 20th century history of Montreal and Canada.... More

William Notman: Father of the Canadian image. This professionally and beautifully arranged exhibition illustrates succinctly that William Norman, Photographer to the Queen in 19th century Montreal, can be credited as the father of so called “Canadian Image”, a romantic cliché that still lingers on, even today. Notman, who himself came to Canada from Scotland in 1856, soon saw the attraction... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
