During the summer months, the MMFA is open every day until September 7, inclusive. We have six ways for you to get your dose of culture this summer — on your own, with friends or with family:

  • In an exclusive Montreal presentation, discover this outstanding collection in the major exhibition Paris in the Days of Post-Impressionnism: Signac and the Indépendants.

  • “Sail” over the colourful waves of Sailboats, a poetic installation on Avenue du Musée created by the Collectif Escargo, in tribute to the generous donors to the MMFA Foundation’s 2019-2020 annual campaign.

  • Immerse yourself in public art by reserving your spot for a guided tour of the MMFA’s Sculpture Garden, featuring 30 works by acclaimed local and international artists.

  • Have fun in the great outdoors by taking part in one of our Family Workshops in the MMFA’s Sculpture Garden, accompanied by a Museum mediator.

  • Drop by the Museum’s main Boutique and Bookstore, open from Thursday to Sunday. There, you’ll find a wide array of beautiful books, design objects and gift ideas.

  • Feel like watching a movie? Reserve your seat at the Cinéma du Musée.

  • Check out these fun activities to make the most of your summer!
