A Roundup Of The Best Murals In Montréal

Montréal is known for its cobblestone streets, charming cafés and European charm.

From the city’s historic museums to its breathtaking scenery, notable chefs to landmarks, Montréal has something to offer everyone.  

Lately, Montréal has experienced a shift in culture thanks to its growing population of millennials. Montréal’s street murals have put this city on the map as one of the more colourful destinations.

Regardless of the neighbourhood you’re visiting, Montréal has plenty of places to explore artwork in action. If you happen to visit Montreal from June 8 to 18, this summer,, the city is hosting the MURAL Festival, a public arts event featuring all things urban art. The festival aims to encourage fellow artists and help urban art become widely accessible. The public is invited to experience real-life creation of these murals from start to finish. Visitors can also enjoy exclusive events, seminars, outdoor exhibits and more.

If you miss MURAL Festival, you’ll still have the chance to see some of the artwork since these murals remain intact for one year, allowing residents and visitors to see them at any given time.

Various neighbourhoods in Montréal, such as Le Plateau-Mont-Royal, offer up a booming arts scene with funky boutiques and unique thrift stores. This once working-class-turned-hipster neighbourhood flaunts its creative flare through bohemian vibes and colourful culture. If you happen to wander through the area, you’re bound to see a colourful mural or two down every street.

On your next visit to Montréal, remember to explore a side street or two to see first hand the creativity of Montréal’s residents. If you’re not sure where to start, here are some of the best murals and street art to visit:
