The MMFA is offering a panoply of free family workshops this spring break. From February 29 to March 8 (excluding Monday, March 2), artistic activities inspired by the Museum’s collection will stimulate the imaginations of people of all ages. It’s a great opportunity to enjoy memorable quality time as a family.

Free admission to the exhibitions and collections for everyone aged 20 and under
Take advantage of spring break with your family to discover exhibitions like Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives as well as the new Stephan Crétier and Stéphany Maillery wing dedicated to the Arts of One World, comprising over 1,500 artworks from every continent. Note that admission to the Museum is free at all times for youth aged 20 and under.

Creative Workshops
Every Saturday and Sunday, the MMFA offers a range of free creative activities for families that are related to our current collections and exhibitions. The four-handed workshop is custom-designed for young children aged 2 to 5, while the themed and drop-in workshops are for children aged 6 and up who are accompanied by an adult.

From Tuesday, March 3 to Friday, March 6, the Mash-up Fun drop-in workshop will run on an exceptional basis from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Children aged 8 to 12 can take part in the Flesh Colour? creation workshop based on Humanae, a work that invites you to open your eyes to the chromatic diversity of human skin and debunk preconceived ideas of a single “flesh” colour.
