The program for this 28th edition is once again overflowing with exceptional cultural experiences, featuring new attractions and some old favourites. Visitors will be able to explore art, science, architecture, nature, archaeology and history from all kinds of perspectives.

 

Montréal Museums Day (MMD) draws on local museums' openness to the world, as crossroads of cultures whose diversity represents their sense of belonging, their rich traditions and their identities and heritage. MMD salutes museums' role in preserving and showcasing our city's identity through the many cultures shaping modern-day Montréal. It also reflects museums' interest in sharing, innovating and applying new technologies and social media to convey their commitment and passion.

MMD is presented by Québecor, in co-operation with the STM and many other partners.
