Preschool and Elementary (Cycle 1)

My First Visit to the Museum

What is a museum? Over the course of an interactive Museum stroll interspersed with creative and discovery activities, the children will explore themes related to works in various collections, talk about what they see, and marvel at the beauty of art.

How to plan you visit

Raise students’ awareness about

  • The role of museums (showcasing and conserving works)
  • The fact that we can learn a lot from artworks and cultural objects
  • The challenges around displaying works and the richness of each collection
Creative activity

  • Make a miniature model of the Museum.

Build mathematical knowledge.
Assemble and compare actual collections.

10 to 15 min
Talk about what a collection is, and how it is stored and protected. Suggest that participants assemble a collection of simple objects at home.

Planning your visit


The group entrance is located at 2075 Bishop Street.

School bus

If you are coming by school bus, allow extra time for potential traffic congestion.

Métro station

The Museum is a 5-minute walk from the Guy-Concordia Métro station (Guy exit).

Allow sufficient time

Allow approximately 30 minutes for students to be greeted at the entrance, to go to the cloakroom and washroom, and to be divided into groups.


To facilitate movement through the galleries and ensure that everyone gets a good view of the works, each class will be divided into two subgroups composed of a maximum of 15 students (11 for preschool groups). The class will regroup afterward in the workshop, if applicable.
