The Museum's Gift of the Holidays

Unwrap your gift from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA). From December 24 to 31, 2023, admission to its collections and exhibitions—with the exception of the major exhibition Marisol: A Retrospective—is free for everyone. Plus, you'll also be able to enjoy spending some creative time with friends and family thanks to the array of art workshops that will be offered during the holiday period.

Young and old alike can visit the Museum's permanent collections free of charge, as well as these exhibitions on now in our galleries:

Françoise Sullivan: "I let the rhythms flow"
The year 2023 will mark the 100th year in the life of Françoise Sullivan, a figurehead of modern art and a pioneer of Quebec dance. For the occasion, the MMFA is devoting an exhibition to her to give the public the chance to discover the artist's recent paintings, in which she continues to explore the timeless themes of movement and light.

The Pop of Life! Pop Art in the Collection of the MMFA
This exhibition showcases iconic works of Pop art from the Museum's collection, including creations that have rarely or never been shown.

Please note that the MMFA will be closed on December 25 and January 1. The Museum will be open as of noon on December 26 and January 2.
