Everybody, mark your calendars! On May 29th it’s Montreal Museum Day. On this fine day, Montreal opens 30 museums for free and to sweeten the deal, there are even shuttle buses, activities and events- all free of charge.
Montreal Museum Day can be a daunting one. It can be difficult to narrow down exactly the best way to take advantage of all this free stuff, so you should well prepare your visit program ! Chances are you won’t be able to visit all participating museums so consider picking your top two favorite museum circuits ahead of time or create your own museum circuit.
Montreal Museums Day marks the May 18th celebration of International Museums Day, a 1977 UNESCO/International Council of Museums initiative revolving around the motto that “museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, co-operation and peace among peoples.”
