  • Nothing of interstate here. Waste of time. And I live architecture. This place is empty! Just a bookshop
  • This architectural classical beauty has upgraded the neighborhood since it was built here. It is a wonderful gift to the city and should be rightfully appreciated by any Montrealer trying to make things better. As for tourists, it depends on the current exhibition being held, or whether they have a true love for quality architecture...
  • Really loved the exhibits and I'm not in the field. Enjoyed the exhibit that outlined the architects drawings on axel's. Neat bookshop too!
  • Going to the CCA is always a beautiful experience. The interiors are gorgeous and the library is amazing.
  • The secret to this place is its great networking/party events at night (for example, a gala opening). You get to meet quality and classy people in a chic setting; music at these events is lively. Seminars and lectures here are also good and often provided by prominent keynote speakers. This is no "boring museum", it' a cultural institution. The exhibits and book store are a must see for lovers of architecture and art history.
