Education

The Museum’s encyclopedic collection is an invaluable resource for all!

A field trip to the Museum is a unique opportunity to experience an enriching cultural experience. With the guidance of our educators, students will learn to appreciate art more fully and take part in creative activities.

A family outing to the Museum is a great way to spend time together while discovering cultural diversity. In addition to our popular art workshops, we also have musical activities, films and other surprises in store. Families can also enjoy our activities during Spring Break, at our Day Camp, in the StudiO and at Birthday Workshops. Watch our calendar for details!

Art does you good!

Sharing the Museum is an educational programme that offers community organizations working with people who would not otherwise be able to visit the Museum free access to guided tours and workshops.

Community Programmes

Sharing the Museum

Sharing the Museum

For almost fifteen years, the MMFA has been offering Sharing the Museum, a free educational experience available to community organizations working with people who would not otherwise be able to visit the Museum.

Semaine relâche

Family Saturdays

For fifteen years, the Museum has worked closely with the government organization Une école montréalaise pour tous. This collaboration has led to the implementation of a programme facilitating access to culture for underprivileged families, who come to the Museum one Saturday a month.

It consists of welcoming pupils from disadvantaged schools by subsidizing the transportation and cost of the activities, and also by encouraging families in difficult circumstances to visit the Museum. Thus families identified by the organization Une école montréalaise pour tous are brought to the MMFA in specially chartered buses. The Museum provides them with passes that grant free admission to the collections and to all family activities.

Family Saturdays host about ninety visiting families one Saturday per month. Three workshops are reserved for them and six educators are on hand to lead the activities. The programme is already a hit: so many families are eager to participate that Saturdays are often fully booked!
