Experience the best of Montréal from home
While we’re all working together to beat the spread of COVID-19 from the comfort of our homes, Montréal’s iconic sights and sounds are easier than ever to experience. Here’s a few of our favourite virtual Montréal experiences that we can’t wait to share with you.
Art comes home
Some of Montréal’s top art spaces and festivals are hosting online exhibitions, virtual tours and special activities to keep families entertained during their time indoors. The MURAL Festival’s 360° views give a peek at some of the city’s world famous wall art, while Art public Montréal’s website takes you on a tour past Montréal’s most iconic public pieces. And every day, the Montréal Museum of Fine Art is updating their website with cultural offerings including podcasts, audio guides and closer looks at the museum’s collections.
The screens are alive with the sound of music
Montréal is a world hotspot of music, including its internationally renowned indie scene. The organizers of the annual POP Montréal International Music Festival are offering online playlists and live performances including local luminaries like Martha Wainwright, who led the city in a balcony singalong of Leonard Cohen’s ‘So Long, Marianne’. Classical music fans will love the online programming from the Orchestra symphonique de Montréal.
Reach new video gaming highs
Home to one of the world’s most forward-thinking video gaming scenes, there’s no better time to experience the latest and greatest productions from producers like Ubisoft, EA, Epic and Google all active in the city. We’ll meet you online for a race!
