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.

10 to 15 min
Have students figure out a route from their school to the Museum on a map.
Planning your visit
The group entrance is located at 2075 Bishop Street.
If you are coming by school bus, allow extra time for potential traffic congestion.
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.
