The central pavilion, which features large expanses of glass, connects the original 1933 Gérard-Morisset building and the 1867 Charles-Baillairgé building. The Pierre Lassonde pavilion, scheduled to open in 2016, will almost double the gallery space and include an auditorium. The museum, which chronicles Québec’s art from the French Colonial period to the present, contains a large collection of fine arts, including paintings, sculptures and ceramics as well as articles fashioned of gold and silver. Features include traveling exhibitions, music recitals and films. Food is available.
