Whether you're from Montreal or you're just visiting, you probably know that one of the best things about this city is our huge selection of museums. No matter what you're interested in, there's a place for you to go and geek out.

I LOVE museums. And honestly, I don't see how anyone couldn't. They're fun, they're educational and they make you feel cultured AF. Trust me, I would much rather go to a museum than stare at a screen all day.
The only thing that makes people shy away sometimes is the price. Some museums are free in Montreal which is awesome, but most aren`t. It makes sense. Think of all the upkeep!
But one day each year, all the rules change. That`s right, Museum Day is back and you`ll be able to go tons of Montreal museums completely free of charge!
This year, Museum Day is on Sunday, May 27, 2018. How perfect is that? You`ll probably have work off so you can spend the whole day in museums.
This awesome event is hosted by MTL Museums. Now, unfortunately, the official program which lists each and every museum participating isn`t out just yet. That doesn`t mean we can`t get excited. Last year's event featured free entrance to the Montreal Museum Of Fine Arts, Planetarium, and more, so there`s definitely tons to be excited about.
Here are all the museums that were free last year:
Canadian Centre for Architecture
Centre d'exposition de l'Université de Montréal
Centre d'exposition Lethbridge
DHC/ART Fondation pour l'art contemporain
Galerie D'Art Stewart Hall Galerie De L'Uqam

Soak up some culture, I dare you. You will definitely learn something. And let`s face it, come May 27, it`s probably already going to be super hot outside. So you`ll want a break from the blazing sun. You can pop in and out, no problem. That`s the beauty of free entrances.
This could be you!
Here`s a video from last year to get you excited:
