The city’s big museums are always a draw, with plenty of family-friendly activities and guided tours (some free, some at discounted prices). See the vast collections at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, including En Masse’s black-and-white mural-like art, as well as free screenings of films from the International Festival of Films on Art. The Musée d’art contemporain takes part in Saturday’s Marathon of Arts via a workshop called Souffle d’inspiration, and on Sunday tours and workshops related to the exhibition A Matter of Abstraction. Step into Montreal history at Pointe-à-Callière, and weave through the Urban Forest at the McCord Museum, where you might even get to know your satirical self at their Become an Editorial Cartoonist Workshop, September 29-30.
