In connection with Identity Development

30 min
Have students write a short composition about a place that makes them feel good. Suggest they describe the place by relying on their senses (smells, colours, temperature, etc.) and their emotional responses (calmness, safety, solitude, and so on).

To delve further into this topic

Have students watch the video featuring Boucar Diouf on the EducArt platform.

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.
