  • Currently being renovated. Only a few installations are available. Recommend waiting until the rest of the museum is open.
  • Terror Contagion currently available is deeply thought provoking and informative. There is such a lot to take in that it is only the tip of the iceberg. But a starting point to provoke a deeper awareness of what technology is capable of. I found the temporary location difficult to find for a visitor to Montreal. The front of house is most unwelcoming. The woman at the ticket office was abrupt and quite rude. On the other hand a young lady spent time with me to explain the content of the exhibition which I really appreciated. In winter the least that could be provided is a ' cloak room' as in a coat rack, to leave coats etc. Perhaps when I come back in a couple of years time MAC will be back in its home.
