About the Museum
A word from the President
October 13, 2021, marks the 100th anniversary of the McCord Museum, founded in 1921 by Montreal collector and lawyer David Ross McCord.
To celebrate this centenary, the Museum is offering special programming from now until the fall of 2022. We are also very pleased to mark our anniversary with the gift of 100 free days of admission to the Museum, until January 19, 2022, thanks to the support of BMO Financial Group.
Though one hundred years old, the Museum is more contemporary than ever, taking this opportunity to look to the future, reflect, stimulate discussion and forge bonds among Montrealers of all backgrounds. At the same time, the Museum is continuing its mission to preserve, disseminate and promote the city’s social history as well as its influence on Quebec, Canada and the world.
Explore the special programming for our 100th anniversary here, on the site, and in person at the Museum.
I look forward to welcoming you to the McCord Museum in the very near future.
Suzanne Sauvage, O.Q.
President and Chief Executive Officer
