One of Montreal’s favourite museums, the Musée d’art contemporain (MAC) will be suspending activities for five months beginning June 28 to make way for extensive renovations. The museum building at Place des Arts, meanwhile, is set to close until 2025. \nIn the interim, beginning in November 2021, the museum will relocate just a short jaunt down rue Sainte-Catherine in an 11,000-square-foot space in Place Ville-Marie, complete with "an exhibit space, a projection room and a creative workshop for [educational] programs."\nEditor's Choice: You Can Dine Indoors In Montreal And Laval Restaurants Next Week & Here Are The Rules\n\n View this post on Instagram A post shared by MAC Musée d'art contemporain (@macmontreal)\n"To our great regret, the magnitude of the transformation project for the MAC, at the heart of Place des Arts, is entering a phase that is incompatible with welcoming visitors," John Zeppetelli, director and curator of the MAC, said in a press release.\nZeppetelli added that transferring the MAC to Place Ville-Marie "is a gigantic and extremely complex project, which requires rigorous planning, but which also marks the beginning of a particularly exciting new chapter in the history of the museum, namely the beginning of the expansion project."\nThe new MAC space at Place Ville-Marie will open at the corner of Mansfield and Cathcart in downtown Montreal.
