A day at the Museums

I was invited by my sister to spend the day visiting museums. I already knew I wanted to see: Waterhouse at The Montreal Museum of Fine Art (picture above) but I was further intrigued to visit one of her favorite free for students spot in Montreal; The CCA, Canadian Center of Architecture (picture below). She often talked about the beautiful summer garden and the study room. There was no way I was going to miss visiting it. Luckily enough, I received a special permission to snap a few pictures in the wooden salon, between the winter garden and the large study room. I can easily imagine if I was a student living in Montreal I would not miss a chance to go relax in this peaceful area. I also took a minute to stop and admire the “by appointment only” library through the window door. I’m sure that many treasures are hidden inside. Book lovers interested in Arts, Graphic Design or Architecture will be stunned by the dream bookstore located on the main floor! For more details you are welcome to visit their website, here.
