If anyone is heading over or in Montreal, I recommend checking out the Samurai exhibit currently on at the museum of archaeology in old montreal.

The exhibit showcases a collection of Samurai armor, blades and myriad other accessories and artifacts collected by Montrealer Professor Richard Béliveau's private collection. And what a collection it is!

 All the pieces on display are in beautiful condition and are coupled with all sorts of interesting information about Samurai studies, daily lives, and the periods of time in which they were prolific. The exhibit makes for an accessible and comprehensive introduction to what Samurai's were all about while showing off some genuinely amazing artifacts. Definitely worth a look if your into the subject matter... and lets face it, who doesn't find Samurai interesting?
