40 Montreal Art, Science, And History Museums That Will Be Free To Attend This Month

I don't know about you, but for me, the perfect day in Montreal always includes a visit to some kind of museum.

Whether it's to one of the more popular spots, like the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts or the Biodome, or something a little less generally known (like the Redpath Museum, for example), museums in the city are always super fascinating and always tend to expand my general culture knowledge that much more.

Plus, they're always a lot of fun! There's just something about touring the oldschool clothes at Montreal's Musee De La Mode, or checking out the latest contemporary art exhibits at the MAC, that's not only incredibly interesting, but also a fun and productive way to spend your time, in my opinion.

And if you tend to think exactly like me when it comes to museums, then do I have some awesome news for you.

Every year in May, Montreal hosts a city-wide Free Museum Day, as part of the global Museum Day initiative.

This year, it's going down on Sunday, May 28, and over 40 Montreal museums will be participating. New museums that have never participated before will be part of the program, too, and since it's the city's 375th birthday, you can bet the vibes will be extra awesome this year!

If you have no idea which museums are participating in Montreal's Museum Day this year, then don't worry. That's what I'm here for, friend.
