Montreal Museums You Can Visit For Free In March

Get cultured for free!

Museums often go unmentioned when Montrealers are brainstorming things to do. Most often, it's not because people think museums are "boring" but because the entrance fee can be pretty steep, especially if you're a student or not earning a ton of money.

This shouldn't stop people from visiting museums, and even museums know this! Many museums waive their entry fees on specific days, or for certain events, in order to make access to important art and information more democratic. 

Below you can find a list of museums that are free at some point in the next month. Just remember that many of these museums still rely on ticket sales and donations to keep their doors open, so make sure to drop some change in the donation box if you can.

TL;DR Below you can find a list of Montreal museums that are free at some point during the month of March.
