Owner description: A major Canadian institution dedicated exclusively to contemporary art, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) is located in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles and at the site of Place des Arts. It lies in the centre of a unique cultural complex in Canada, combining both the performing and visual arts. Founded in 1964, the MAC is the first institution in Canada devoted exclusively to contemporary art. The Museum offers a varied program, including the presentation of its permanent collection and temporary exhibitions of works by artists from Québec, Canada, and abroad.

And also good temporary exhibitions. Late night Fridays the museum comes alive.

Nice place. Interesting and very well located in the middle of the "Place des Festivals".

Half the exhibit space is under renovation. The remaining space is minimal and does not display "art". Unless you get excited about a roll of barbed wire, papers plastered on a wall and endless black and white videos with people talking. Yes, it's an opinion.

MACM was free on a Wednesday night. The exhibit of contemporary Quebec artists was very interesting, but small (finished seeing it in about 1 hour).
