Built around an existing structure (Shaughnessy House, visible only from Boulevard René-Lévesque) which was bought out by the Centre's founder, Phyllis Lambert, this museum contains a collection of photos, drawings, prints and other artifacts. Temporary exhibition space, a study and a book store are located in the central section.

The choice of materials is not random - limestone and granite were used in reference to other Montreal buildings, making the whole structure fit naturally in the city.
