Rediscover Your City with the McCord Museum
In addition to its indoor programming, the McCord Museum offers outdoor activities inviting Montrealers to explore their city and take advantage of the summer months. This season, the Museum is bringing back its Historical Tours accompanied by a guide to help visitors learn more about two downtown neighbourhoods. At the same time, self-guided tours are available through the Museum’s mobile application.
Montrealers can also see the Museum’s outdoor exhibition All Together on McGill College Avenue, featuring photographs of major Montreal gatherings over the past 100 years, and they can share their own gatherings as part of the #FramingEverydayLife project. Finally, the Urban Forest welcomes passers-by to take a break under its colourful trees and celebrate the 11th edition of the downtown oasis.
RETURN OF THE OUTDOOR HISTORICAL TOURS
The Museum’s outdoor guided tours are back this summer with two 90-minute walks through two iconic downtown neighborhoods. These tours are offered on alternating Saturdays from July 3 to August 28, 2021.
THE McCORD MUSEUM’S URBAN FOREST : A COOL BATH IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
From May 24 to October 17, the Urban Forest offers Montrealers a unique space downtown for wellness on pedestrianized Victoria Street. With its street furniture and warm colours, this park provides visitors and workers with a place to relax and enjoy themselves throughout the summer season.

EXHIBITION ALL TOGETHER
From June 18 to October 17, the Museum’s photography exhibition returns to McGill College Avenue inviting Montrealers to think about what motivates them to gather with others in the public square. After more than a year of confinement, the exhibition, All Together, revisits gatherings of the past 100 years in Montreal, from large neighbourhood parties to social protests.
For fans of self-guided tours, the Museum offers, in collaboration with Ivanhoé Cambridge, a mobile application featuring six thematic outdoor excursions. The Urban Tours provide a fun way to learn more about the history of certain places in Montreal during walks lasting between 45 minutes and two hours.
