There are over 55,000 museums in 202 countries, and Montreal has more than its fair share of beautiful and educational places for you to visit.
A museum is a great place to unwind and bring some inner peace to your poker-playing mind. Not to mention that a museum provides plenty of food for conversation, whether at dinner, over drinks, or at the poker table. So get inspired, surround yourself with greatness, and prepare to achieve it yourself at the MILLIONS North America.
If art is your thing, then the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts should be the number one stop on your list. It numbers over 41,000 works from Antiquity to today, making it unique in Canada. And it doesn’t hurt being just around the corner from the Loews Hotel Vogue where you can score preferential rates by using promotional code:
We also highly recommend taking the time to visit the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. Especially for the very Montreal-centric “Leonard Cohen – A Crack in Everything” exhibit, part of the official program for Montreal’s 375th anniversary celebrations.
For History buffs, the Pointe-à-Callière Museum will provide a singular experience, all the while providing a view of the city’s rich and distinct history.
If you’re looking for something a little different, then check out the Barbie Expo – A Magical Exhibition of Haute Couture. It is the largest permanent exhibit of Barbie dolls in the world and it’s FREE. They do accept donations, which go to the Make a Wish Foundation. So support a great cause while getting to see Barbie in Versace.
Looking for something bigger? Visit The Canadian Railway Museum (Exporail). Located just outside Montreal and only 20 minutes from Playground Poker Club, it features 160 vehicles plus 190,000 documents and artifacts. All aboard!
These are just a few of the many interesting museums, art galleries, and exhibits you could visit in and around Montreal. Get familiar with them, because at some point there will be a Canadian Poker Museum/Hall of Fame, and the winner of this year’s record-breaking MILLIONS Main Event will certainly be prominently displayed! So get ready to see and make history during the 2018 MILLIONS North America.
