Maison de la culture du Plateau Mont-Royal

465, avenue du Mont-Royal Est, Montréal

I’m a big fan of the Maisons de la Culture! The Plateau Mont-Royal facility is three minutes from my home and I try to go as often as possible. My children as well can discover all kinds of cultural treasures which encourages their love of the arts because that’s where it all begins!

I take advantage of rush-seats available at almost all theatres, too.   

Museum of Fine arts

1380, rue Sherbrooke Ouest
Admission es $7.50 on wednesday from 5 to 9 p.m.

The Museum of Fine Arts is half-price on Wednesday evenings! Not to mention the many artists’ centres scattered throughout the city that feature astounding works, and are free as well! It’s also worth looking into the exhibitions on the RCAAQ (Réseau d’Art Actuel) website and planning a few visits – just avoid the vernissage evenings, it’ll be more relaxing! 

La rue Kitétonne

From June 14 to June 16, 2012

2600 Rue William Tremblay, Montréal

And, even though they’ve come and gone, but will most likely return next June, are the FTA and the many small events that interest me, like la rue Kitétonne (Promenade Masson), which decentralize the downtown cultural core and make culture come to life right in various neighbourhoods. They really make us want to discover Montreal and all its madness, beyond the beaten paths.
