Following an international architectural competition, KPMB Architects + Daoust Lestage Lizotte Stecker Architecture created the winning design of the Museum on Saint-Laurent. Based on the pillars of memory, education, and community, the striking new building honours Jewish tradition and Montreal’s rich design history.
Construction on the new Museum began in November 2023 and is slated to be completed by late 2025. The Museum is aiming for a carbon neutral status.
An indispensable tool in the prevention of antisemitism, racism, and hate, the new Museum will allow us to reach thousands more through:
- An expanded 10,000 sq. ft. permanent exhibit displaying the Museum’s rich oral history and artefact collection
- A temporary exhibit gallery to host ancillary exhibits about the Holocaust, genocide, and human rights
- Dedicated classrooms for school groups
- A 150-seat auditorium and multifunctional space for public programming
