Fun Family Day

It's been quite rainy here in Montreal for the past few weeks, with only a few lucky days of gorgeous sun. Tomorrow is no exception as the forecast is rain, rain and more rain. Why not get the kids out of the house and hit up one of Montreal's awesome museums?

Well it's just your luck, because tomorrow the Board of Montreal Museum Directors (BMMD) is celebrating its 25th anniversary. In honor of this special day, 32 museums are offering free admission to the public from 9 am to 6 pm. How amazing is that? Even better, there will be 7 free bus routes to 32 museums, so you can hit up as many museums as your heart desires. Start your tour at the museum of your choice or at the promenade des Artistes (Place-des-arts metro).

To make this day even more fun the museums offer free access to their permanent and temporary exhibits and run special activities for the whole family. From outdoor activities to concerts, tastings and games, historical re-enactments, guided tours and much, much, more!

I for one, will be checking out the Biodome. I have never been, and even though my son is a little young to understand or remember anything that will happen tomorrow, it will be nice to get out of the house and see some cute animals from all sorts of ecosystems. A perfect way to spend a fun, rainy Sunday afternoon with my family.
