    The institution

    Museum of Contemporary Art was founded in 1964 by the Quebec government as a service to the Ministry of Culture. It was not until 1983 that the museum acquires its independence.

    The museum housed in various locations before the construction of its building on the Place des Arts.

    Museum's permanent collection has nearly 7,000 works.
