DESCRIPTION

True to its vocation of acquiring and promoting the work of Canadian and international artists past and present, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) has a mission to attract the broadest and most heterogeneous public possible, and to provide that public with firsthand access to a universal artistic heritage.

Founded in 1860, the MMFA was one of the first museums in North America to amass an encyclopedic collection worthy of the name. Since then, its holdings have grown to almost 36,000 objects—paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings, photographs and decorative art objects—from antiquity to today.

Year after year, the MMFA continues to acquire new works to enrich its collections drawn from World's Cultures, European Art, Canadian Art, Inuit and First Nations Art, Contemporary Art and Decorative Arts.

In order to make our cultural heritage accessible to the greatest number, the Museum has adopted a policy of free admission to its galleries displaying works from the collections.
