Collections du Musée

The Museum’s rich collections are divided into six major sections distributed among the five pavilions of the Museum complex, each of which focusses on a particularly strong aspect of the holdings.

Today, 158 years after its founding, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is more forward-looking than ever! This institution is not a government-run museum, but relies on generous patrons for the expansion of its encyclopedic heritage collection, which has risen to a historic total of 43,000 works.

The Museum’s collections were studied and reinstalled in 2001 and in 2011, prior to the opening of the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion of Quebec and Canadian Art, and in 2016 for the inauguration of the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace. In the wake of this new expansion, the MMFA will undergo a major transformation. Thousands of works will be moved and reinstalled in the various pavilions, in a domino effect generated by the advent of a fifth pavilion. They will be displayed in spectacular exhibition spaces where visitors will be able to admire the Museum’s masterpieces from a new viewpoint.
