Well I don,t really understand the two quite recent reviews of the Museum of Decorative Art since it closed more than a decade ago. I cannot link the sculpture that the first reviewer wrote about with any museum that I know of in Mtl althought th "chasse-galerie" fold tale is very well known in French Canada. Was even shown in the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Well getting back to the hearth of the matter There was a decorative arts many years ago, first in the Chateau Dufresne near the Olympic Stadium and later in the basement of the Museum of Fine-Arts. then the the whole collection was given to the MMFA and now occupies a whole pavillon (aptly named Stewart, the names of the philantropist founders).
So yes you can get a great decorative art and design collection at the MMFA and it is completely free but don,t expect anything else anywhere in town. so when I wrote that I visited this past June I mean the MMFA.
