Museum Hopping with FCCONNECT

FCConnect is part of Friendship Circle of Montreal. The group, made up of students and young professionals meets once a month to participate in social events with their special needs friends so they too get the chance to experience and explore their city, just like their peers. 

Some past outings included a brewery tour and a pool hall night. Greg Sigler, a medical student and board member of FCConnect says

"FCConnect works to integrate special needs adults with their peers and build relationships that will manifest organically and have a lasting impact on society. "

This month FCConnect and their special needs friends are taking part in Montreal Museums Day.   

Montreal Museums Day, where some of Montreal's best museums are free for the public's enjoyment, is taking place on Sunday, May 28th. More then 30 museums will be open to the public and the city is also providing free shuttle service.

The shuttle bus departure is located near Place-des-Arts Metro's Jeanne-Mance exit, on the edge of Place des Festivals, at the corner of Jeanne-Mance and de Maisonneuve. 

Some of the museums open to the public include Montreal Biodome, McCord Museum, Redpath Natural History Museum, and the Biosphere. We will be starting the day at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts followed by a picnic and we'll end the day at the Montreal Museum for Contemporary Art.

Be sure to follow us along on Sunday, May 28th. We will be posting on Instagram @fcmtl. See you then!
