Founded in 1979, the Canadian Centre for Architecture is located in a beautiful, tastefully restored, 19th-century residence.
Renowned for its educational dimension, the centre hosts a library, bookstore, auditorium, and six rooms for the organisation of exhibitions, public lectures, film screenings, and debates, all aimed at promoting the role of architecture in culture and in society in general. Cross the street that borders the centre to take a walk in the park and discover the sculptures designed by artist/architect Melvin Charney. This is one of the hidden gems of Montreal.
If you are bringing kids along, do not miss the workshops dedicated to the 5-to-18-year-olds. They offer an introduction to the world of architecture and its impact on city life.
