The resumption of activities after the pandemic has resulted in a high volume of requests to hold events at the Museum. We therefore wish to inform you that our spaces are fully booked until December 31, 2022. No further requests can be taken for an event, film shooting or photo shoot to be held before 2023. Requests for events to take place in 2023 will be processed after August 31, 2022.

Organize an event at the
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

Your guests will enjoy the opportunity to view its world-class exhibitions or the masterworks in its rich, encyclopedic collection.

Exclusively for partners and patrons

Since the MMFA is not a government-run museum, it must finance a large percentage of its own operationst. The donations the Museum Foundation receives from the institution’s many partners and patrons are a vital source of revenue that help secure and grow the MMFA’s future. To this end, several event spaces are available for rental exclusively to Museum partners and donors for a minimum donation of $25,000.

Please note that these spaces cannot be rented for any private event, such as a wedding or birthday.

For further information, please contact us: fondation@mbamtl.org
