Holiday Season at the Museum

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is getting in the holiday spirit with a variety of cultural activities and exhibitions. Take this opportunity to visit the new Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace. Admission is free until January 15 for the new Pavilion, as well as for all the Museum’s collections and the discovery exhibitions, SHE PHOTOGRAPHS and KERRY JAMES MARSHALL.

FAMILY ACTIVITIES
Families are invited to take part, free of charge, in a selection of creative arts activities centred on the magic of Christmas. Young and old alike will be welcome in the newly expanded, recently inaugurated Michel de la Chenelière International Atelier for Education and Art Therapy. Come and discover the new Bell Family Lounge and the Rainbow Hall. At the Museum, holiday season is all about families!
