Day 2

Exploring First Nations and Inuit Cultures: The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

With over one million visitors a year, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most popular museums in the country. It is renowned for its encyclopedic collection featuring over 41,000 works of art – the only one of its kind in Canada – and its original temporary exhibitions. Explore its four pavilions, including the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion of Quebec and Canadian Art, which showcases over one hundred Inuit and Indigenous works of art. 

The Inuit Art collection, which takes up the entire fourth level of the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion of Quebec and Canadian Art, bears witness to the Inuit artistic practice, past and present. It illustrates how the Inuit identity draws on both ancient legends and modern-day changes to their way of life. 

On Level 3, early and contemporary Indigenous Art is showcased in the Founding Identities gallery, highlighting the critical and introspective perspectives of the First Nations regarding their contact with Europeans.

Transportation: National Car Rental
Flight To: Quebec Jean Lesage International Airport
Check-In: Hôtel - Musée Premières Nations

The heart of the Huron Wendat beats at the rhythm of the Kabir Kouba Waterfall, a natural site of rare beauty, which presents, as the seasons go by, an awe-inspiring scene, continually renewed. Why be astonished when, as soon as 1697, the Huron Wendat established, in this location, their village. A path, starting on the side of Place des Nations, gives access and allows to hear the roar of the gushing water and become captivated by the exceptional natural location of this canyon of 42 metres deep.
