Following announcements from public health officials, the Montreal Holocaust Museum is pleased to reopen its doors to visitor starting July 6, 2020 at 11:00 am. With new health and safety measures in place, the Museum’s permanent exhibition will be open with a few important changes for visitors.
The Museum has implemented new measures to ensure that visitors have a meaningful and safe experience in the permanent exhibition.
We are eager to open the Museum while ensuring the health and safety of our visitors and staff.
– Daniel Amar, Executive Director
Visitors can expect to wear masks and will be asked to book their tickets in advance online (pre-book them here). The list of new safety measures is available on the Museum website.
With moving personal artefacts, the permanent exhibition tells the story of Jewish communities before, during and after the Holocaust. Through the life stories of Montreal survivors, the Museum invites visitors to reflect on the destruction caused by prejudice, racism and antisemitism.
To discover multimedia content while visiting the permanent exhibit, the public is invited to download the free app and bring their smartphones or tablets to the Museum. Interactive maps and timelines will be available via QR codes in the exhibit.
