Language programs

The Museum offers both on-site and online activities to help participants learn and practise a new language while fostering a sense of belonging to the host community.


A guided tour of the Museum helps beginners develop an ear for the language, acquire new vocabulary and learn about Montreal culture. The itinerary is adapted to the needs of your group of language students. Conversation exercises are incorporated into the tour, which also includes a workshop where participants can handle and discuss objects.


Les Rendez-vous du Musée McCord 2.0” is designed for all our virtual visitors who would like to learn French. You can test your knowledge of French with the help of online educational materials. These videos and worksheets offer a unique opportunity to explore the customs and traditions of Quebec and Canada.


Drawing on its experience, the McCord Museum is a vital contributor to the francisation of newcomers to the city.

They will be invited to discover the permanent exhibition Wearing our Identity – The First Peoples Collection. Visits will be led by facilitators who have received special training for the program. They will be encouraged to ask questions about the artefacts and to explore the culture of the First People.

Thank you to our donor for its generous support:
