Thursdays at the Museum

At the Museum, we firmly believe that people are never too old to learn and grow through art and culture!

Every Thursday, people aged 65 and over can enjoy free access to our encyclopaedic collections as well as a plethora of free activities designed especially for them. While these various activities are self-contained, when combined they offer an opportunity to explore every aspect of your creativity.

Ranging from guided tours of the featured collection to art workshops, our varied programming has something for everyone.

Art in motion Workshop

Once a month, Art in Motion invites people who are 65 and over to join a relaxing moment of new discoveries.

This workshop is a chance to discover and explore close connections between works of art, physical movement and the creative act. Participants will start by taking a walk through the museum’s collections. Next, some simple dance exercises will gently awaken our bodies to the benefits and pleasure of moving. The workshop will end with a short artistic creation that will draw awareness to the body and gestures involved in creative acts.

Passes are distributed from 10 a.m. on the day of the activity, at the Museum ticket counter. All materials required for the activity are provided.
