Join us every Tuesday and Thursday for free and guided tours of Balade pour la Paix, an open-air museum along Sherbrooke Street, which takes as its theme the possibility of openness, peace, and diversity among nations. Created by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, in collaboration with McGill University, the exhibition is part of the official program of Montreal's 375th anniversary, and also commemorates the 50th anniversary of Expo 67, and the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.

Experience the big, bright sculpture lining McGill's campus, together with photography installations and international flags, as you tour one part of this monumental exhibition.

Rain or shine. No registration required. See details below.
