Musee des Beaux-Arts Montreal, part deux…

The second of four parts.  Located in a historic section of Rue Sherbrooke known as the Golden Square Mile, the Musée des Beaux-Arts Montreal, or Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, is the city’s largest.


“Don’t go to a museum with a destination.  Museums are wormholes to other worlds.  They are ecstasy machines.” ― Jerry Saltz

“The Bucintoro at the Molo on Ascension Day.” / Canaletto 1697-1768.

Adjacent to the building is the Avenue du Musée, a public street that is sometimes the site of large-scale art installations.
