Located in the Griffintown neighborhood of Montreal, the Arsenal Contemporary Art museum is a private foundation dedicated to the support, promotion and development of contemporary art. Placed in a 50,000 square foot industrial space, it has showcased extensive exhibitions of local and international artists. It is the largest private art center in Canada establishing the city as a hub for contemporary art.
With the considerable amount of space available, the exhibitions are able to showcase large pieces and give them the room required to stand out, allowing people to fully enjoy each piece of art. I truly enjoyed my last visit to this museum and found it to be quite unique when compared to the more traditional museums. I will definitely return and recommend it, not only to newcomers to the city, but also locals who have a penchant for art.
