Museum Day – Sunday, May 29th

Artisan Museum of Montreal2

CLC students visited the Artisan Museum of Montreal this past February.

This upcoming Sunday, May 29th, 2016, Montreal will be hosting its annual Museum Day. What exactly is a Museum Day? Well, in a nutshell, it’s an entire day where Montrealers and visitors can enjoy visiting a plethora of museums for absolutely no cost. Yes. Free for you, free for me, and free for the entire family! It’s only once a year, usually on the last Sunday of May. This year marks the 30th anniversary of this terrific Montreal event. As such, over 30 museums will be participating this year and the full line-up is available here: http://goo.gl/CsfkAR

What’s even better is that there will be free shuttle service around town to facilitate museum-hopping. Check out STM’s website for more information about shuttle itinerary: http://goo.gl/ytXTvr
