Visit the spectacular Pierre Lassonde pavilion, which houses the Museum’s impressive collection of contemporary art from 1960 and on (including design, decorative arts, and Inuit art), the Gérard-Morisset pavilion, a veritable temple of historical art, and of course the luminous glass pyramid of the Central Pavilion, which houses the Family Gallery.
