TL;DR Montreal's Museum of Fine Arts is offering free admission to the general public from December 22, 2018 to January 6, 2019 on both their Collections and Discovery Exhibitions. More information below.

Sure, you can spend that time indoors catching up on sleep while you can, but why not make use of your spare time by visiting some of the free events going on across the city?

Imagine it: it's snowing peacefully out, most roads and streets are empty because everyone is staying indoors, and you have the entire city basically to yourself. To make it even better, visiting Montreal's Museum of Fine Arts over the holidays will cost you absolutely nothing.

Yes, it's true. The museum is offering free admission from December 22, 2018 to January 6, 2019. This means you can bring your entire family, just a date, or visit by yourself and no matter your age or arrival time, you won't pay whatsoever!

The Collection and Discovery Exhibitions, which would regularly cost up to $8 for admission, are part of this amazing holiday perk. There's no coupon or discount code you'll need in order to get into the museum for free, all you have to do is show up! It really is the easiest (and most fun) thing you'll be doing for the holidays.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

Announcing Montreal's First Ever Pothole Beauty Pageant

Which is the city's most beautiful pothole?

What we love about potholes here at MTL Blog is that they provide us with an endless number of stories to share. Readers are constantly sending us photos of their favourite holes in the road. Not only that but we've become friends with many potholes around the city.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
