  • See something, walk a mile. See something walk another mile. Very disappointing except for the section of the Berlin wall .

  • I love that this entire place exists. All sorts of shops, businesses, medical offices(??) connected inside a glass cage, plenty of space to just sit and read, and! Once you actually go underground, you’ll find that it’s connected to a ton of free art galleries (which just opened 4/1). Really cool place to go exploring and even learning (there is one exhibit about the history of Montreal’s parliament). I will mention that the google times appear to be wrong: the underground city is accessible at any time during the day, though the shops may be closed. Even still, the shops were shown to be closed on Saturday, yet when I visited some were still open and thriving.
  • Shops are all closed on the weekend.
