The Museum encourages visits by groups of all kinds, including camps, daycare centers, primary and secondary schools, CEGEPs, after-school groups, language schools, tour buses and special excursion groups.

Advance reservations must be made for all group visits regardless of size. Otherwise, a group runs the risk of being refused entry to the museum.

For more information on how to get to the museum, please visit our Directions page.


To submit a request for a group visit, please complete our online Group Reservation Form and receive confirmation for their visits. Groups without a prior confirmed reservation may be refused entry.

Kindly note that group visits are allowed from Tuesdays to Thursdays between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm

What do we offer?

We offer groups a choice of Guided Tours and Non-Guided Tours for all ages.

The Museum can accommodate groups of 50 participants maximum, including accompanying adults. Groups larger than this number will be contacted and offered to select multiple visits on the same or different days.

For Guided Tours, kindly take note of the maximum number of participants for each visit, as specified in each visit's description. You can find these descriptions here.

Follow the group(s) at all times and ensure an adult is present with groups/participants on each floor.
