  • We were amazed by this very dense exhibition and embellished with many costumes, caps, shoes. We have received a lot of additional explanations from a museum speaker. It was absolutely fascinating: we thank him very much.

  • I feel as if I am witnessing the decline of yet another Montreal institution. Over the recent years, the McCord has become more of a party venue than a museum and perhaps the current exhibition on wor...  more »

  • A fantastic family outing. The museum is perfectly geared for adults and an entire floor to children. With a treasure hunt, dress up section and fun facts there is plenty to see and all done in a few hours. Kids won't lose interest and they will have great memories.
  • Excellent attention from all the employees. The guide material of the expositions is really useful, so you can take the road of the museum by yourself. The Balenciaga Exhibition was amazing. ♥️
  • A great museum to learn the history and culture of the indigenous people of Canada. The exhibitions too were awesome. Not a big museum, but it's small and very interesting. Must see. Cafe is good too. Staff was very kind and friendly. Would love to come back here for other touring exhibits.
  • We went to the part for individual visitors. It was lots of fun. On the first floor you can find exhibition of First Nations people - everything made by hands. You can also watch videos. There is part for young kids. They can play around, read books, put on costumes, make crafts and watch interesting exhibition designed for their age. We stayed there around 4 hours and we weren't bored ! There was also birthday party. Kids had some activities with animators and we watched them with interest. I recommend the place to go along with the young children.
  • Smaller but well curated museum. Attention is made to ensure a smooth and meaningful path through the exhibits. To the museum and kind staff: I notice the detail and effort everyone puts in which I appreciate.
