What to know before you visit
We are not a traditional museum – please read more to understand how to plan the best visit for your interests and needs.
Our Museum hosts dozens of cultural events year-round and contemporary art exhibitions in our gallery space. We have recently moved into our location at 5220 boulevard St-Laurent and are only partially operational while we prepare for some major renovations in the space.

- The ground floor of the Museum of Jewish Montreal has a wheelchair ramp and a wheelchair accessible bathroom. There are no automatic door openers, but a Museum staff can assist any visitors entering the building. We do not have an elevator, hence the two upper floors are not accessible for people with reduced mobility.
