Over 30 Montreal museums will be free to visit this May

Montreal has some incredible museums. The only problem is, admission can be a little pricey.

That’s why it’s so important we know about special deals, like how the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is free on the last Sunday of the month, and how the McCord Museum is free Wednesdays after 5pm.

But what if there was a deal when all of the city’s museums were free to visit?

Well, folks that dream is about to become a reality because the city’s annual Montreal Museums Day is almost here.

Scheduled for May 28, 2017, Montreal Museums Day is hosted by the Montreal Museums Society and sees over 30 of the city’s museums opening their doors and waiving all admission fees for one day only.

That means you can plan a day of museum hopping and stop at everything from the esteemed Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art to the educational Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium.

Other participants include the Montreal Biodome, the Montreal Botanical Garden, the Stewart Hall Art Gallery, the Museum of St. Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal, the Fashion Museum, the Biosphere, the Redpath Museum, Pointe-A-Calliere, the Montreal Holocaust Museum, and more.

In addition, there will be storytellers, artisans, and historical figures at some of the stops to answer any questions you may have.

There will also be a special STM route operating to transport Montrealers between museums.

It’s going to be quite a Sunday!
