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.

Workshop the movement in Art

Every two months, people aged 65 and over can enjoy free access to our encyclopaedic collections as well as a multidisciplinary activity designed especially for them. Developed in collaboration with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, this programme sheds light on the role of movement in art and explores the Museum’s works while introducing participants to dance.

Once every two months, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts invites people aged 65 and over to enjoy a day of art and yoga designed especially for them, in addition to free access to its encyclopaedic collections. Yoga helps us to get in touch with our inner selves and replenish our inner light. Combined with art, it serves the Museum’s mission to cultivate well-being.

In a convivial atmosphere, participants will occupy the Museum, taking part in a gentle yoga practice, discussing a work in the collection and enjoying this uniquely creative exploration. A stimulating experience that will open your horizons, body and soul!
