On the occasion of the Journées de la culture, Québec Premier Pauline Marois has announced that, effective October 1, 2013, admission for young people age 13 to 17 to the Musée de la civilisation, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec will be $1. In addition, tours at these three provincially owned museums will be free for children up to age 12. In making this announcement, the Premier is following up on one of the recommendations of the Task Force on Cultural Philanthropy, chaired by Pierre Bourgie. The Task Force proposed a number of measures, including the one announced during the Journées de la culture, to promote the education of young people and their exposure to culture as early as possible.

 

This announcement will have the following impact on the fees charged for educational activities at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal for the user groups concerned.

About one month before your scheduled activity, you will receive an invoice based on these new fees. If you haven’t made a reservation yet, this is an ideal opportunity to discover, or rediscover, the Musée’s educational activities. But don’t delay! Only a few spots remain for the 2013−2014 school year.
