Musée d’Art Contemporain des Laurentides

The Laurentians

Less than an hour from Montréal, this contemporary-art museum has small but excellent exhibitions of work by regional artists. You'll also find the re-created study of writer Claude-Henri Grignon (1894–1976), best known for his novel Un Homme et Son Péché (The Woman and the Miser), who was born in nearby St-Adèle.
