Located near the Guy-Concordia station on the Green Line, the CCA is a beautifully designed tribute to architecture, blending the old (the 1874 Shaughnessy House) with new construction. In addition to viewing their current exhibits, be sure to also visit the Shaughnessy House, entering from...More

I found the Canadian Centre for Architecture a good place. I am not an architect but has some interest in the subject. I had only one day in Montreal and I started it from there. The exhibits, library, overall ambiance everything was great.

The Architecture Museum is free on Thursday nights after 5:30pm. It is housed in an interesting new building, but it also incorporates an older mansion, built in 1879 from stone. This part contains a circular mahogany tea room and solarium. It is an interesting museum...More

So I'm an architect, and I hear about the CCA prior to my visit to Montreal. Naturally I am curious and I must visit. I typically try to plan one cultural activity/event each evening during vacation. The CCA is open late on Wednesdays so it...More

If you are a museum, gallery, and/or architecture fan, then the CCA will probably be a highlight of Montreal for you. It is on the west side of the city, just a short walk from some good shopping and restaurants, as well as Concordia and...More

Small museum with some limited interesting exhibits. Good place to get out of the cold for a couple of hours. Had some nice info on early Montreal and there was a special exhibition from a private collection on Asia which has some interesting pieces.

As an architect i was happy when i found this Centre. There are plans, models and temporary exhibits, but all in a few rooms. I don't think it represents all what Montreal has in its rich construction history. The bookstore is worth the visit and...More

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
