September 29 – October 1, 2023

On September 29 and 30 and October 1, during the Journées de la culture, discover Collection Québec, an interactive digital installation presented simultaneously at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City.


Take in a vast selection of historical objects and works from the two partner museums’ collections, presented in the Micro-Folies environment on a big screen.

Explore the rich content at your own pace and enjoy fun challenges on digital tablets.

Several times a day, the mediation team will lead exciting discussions that will make you appreciate the works from new thematic angles.

This is a unique opportunity for you to dive into a world of art and culture, get inspired and broaden your horizons.

This project has been made possible through financial support from the Government of Quebec.

About the Micro-Folies
Open to Quebec audiences for the first time during the 2023 edition of the Journées de la culture, Collection Québec is a joint production by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City. It is integrated with the international Micro-Folies network.

Coordinated by La Villette, a renowned Parisian cultural institution, and supported by the French ministry of culture, the Micro-Folies seek to reduce geographic disparities by offering unprecedented access to the treasures of the world’s largest cultural institutions.

With more than 275 Micro-Folies across the globe, this initiative has now made its way to Quebec. The Musée de la civilisation and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts pioneered the movement in North America, jointly sharing their collections with the entire network in order to showcase Quebec culture.


Location: During the Journées de la culture, the Micro-Folies installation will be at the J.A. DeSève Gallery, level S1. For free admission to the installation, simply go to the Ticket Counter at the Museum’s main entrance (1380 Sherbrooke Street West).
