MMFA closed to the public until March 30

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) will be closed to the public until March 30. It will therefore temporarily suspend access to its exhibitions and collections as well as to all of its cultural, school, and community activities. The goal of these special measures is to uphold public health and safety by mitigating the spread of COVID-19.

This means that the lectures, movie screenings, guided visits, and activities as part of Family Weekends, Thursdays at the Museum, the Museum’s School of Art, Art Hive and WKSHP 15-20 will be cancelled for the next two weeks, as will educational visits, community programs and art therapy activities. The MMFA’s Boutique and Bookstore and Beaux-Arts Restaurant and Bistro are also closed to the public. Note that scheduled concerts and events at Bourgie Hall have been cancelled until April 11, 2020, inclusively.
