Measures to ensure everyone’s safety

Our team has been working for several weeks to rethink the programming and the access to the Museum and its facilities, in order to provide a safe and pleasant visit experience. We look forward to seeing you again at the Museum. In accordance with public health recommendations guided by the best practices developed by the museum community, the McCord Museum is implementing numerous measures to ensure the safety of visitors and employees.

  • Tickets are best purchased online through the Museum’s website.
  • A limited number of visitors will be admitted at the same time to ensure that the required distancing is maintained.
    Visitors will be expected to follow a predetermined direction during the visit.
  • Suspension of activities and visits with groups for an indefinite period.
  • Plexiglas protection will be installed at the Admission desk and in the Boutique.
  • Hand washing will be mandatory at Museum entrances and exits.
    Disinfecting stations will also be available at the entrances and exits of exhibition halls.
  • Masks will be strongly recommended for visitors, while all employees working with the public will be required to wear them.
  • Procedures for increased cleaning of public spaces, common surfaces and electronic equipment will be implemented.
  • To avoid contact with electronic devices in the exhibition halls, visitors will have access through their cell phones to a microsite containing all the information and images previously accessible on touch screens.
  • Employees at the Admission desk and Boutique as well as mediators will receive training to ensure they’re familiar with the protective measures so they can better guide visitors. Museum office employees are invited to continue teleworking until further notice. Numerous measures have also been taken to ensure their safety during a gradual return to the premises of the Museum.

These measures will be adjusted as the situation evolves and in accordance with the guide to health standards for museum institutions developed by public health authorities and the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail.
