Fans of street art have a new must-see destination in Montreal, Que.

Canadian spirits brand romeo’s gin recently unveiled romeo’s museum, the largest ever collaboration project of Montreal urban artists.

The collaborative consists of 24 murals, each by a different artist, which are displayed on the walls of the industrial stairwells of 5455 and 5445 de Gaspé in the city’s Mile End neighbourhood.

The project, which is the brainchild of romeo’s gin founder Nicolas Duvernois, is Canada’s first urban art museum.

“We wanted to build bridges in unusual spaces and gather the community around what makes us think and dream,” said Duvernoi. “It’s time for urban art to take its place in the heart of the buildings, at a human scale.”

The museum is open 24-7 and admission is free.
