Attendance at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) today reached a million visitors for the year. Xueyi Xie, the one millionth Museum visitor in 2019, was welcomed with full honours this afternoon. The MMFA was pleased to present her with a number of gifts, including an annual membership for the coming year. The MMFA thanks all of its visitors for their loyalty and commitment.
Many of this year’s exhibitions drew throngs of visitors, notably Thierry Mugler: Couturissime, which attracted close to 300,000 people, making it the sixth most popular exhibition in the MMFA’s history. So far, 100,000 visitors have seen the current exhibition, Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives, which has been extended until March 29, 2020, because of public demand.
