As the gradual reopening of Quebec continues, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has announced it is reopening its doors starting Saturday, June 6.
Museums were part of the services that were deemed non-essential by the Quebec government in March and various health measures have now been put in place ahead of its reopening.
According to the MMFA, the museum has taken precautionary and safety measures in order to get the green light to reopen.

The museum’s reopening, which is exclusively for the Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives exhibition, includes having to purchase tickets online, a limited number of people in the museum at a time, and new hand sanitizer installations.
A one-way pathway and direction indicators on the floor will help visitors adhere to the physical distancing measures in effect, the museum said.
The MMFA is also “strongly recommending” the use of face masks for all of its visitors.
“The MMFA has put every measure in place to ensure visits are highly enjoyable, exclusive yet intimate, and, above all, safe,” states the museum’s website. “All of the recommendations of the Government of Quebec and the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) have been implemented so that the MMFA’s public feels at ease and entertained during their Museum outing.”
MMFA visitors and members can book a time slot for their visit as of Tuesday, June 2. Members can enter for no additional costs.
Along with reopening, the Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives exhibition has been extended until June 28.
