Upcoming Exhibitions

From April 26 to October 8, 2017

To mark the 375th anniversary of Montreal and the 50th anniversary of Expo 67, the Museum will present this new exhibition which draws on the technological innovations featured at the pavilions and the dreams that became a reality at 1967’s World Fair, a historical global event that marked the memory of Quebeckers and the public worldwide.

The exhibition will plunge visitors into a circuit that includes, among others, immersive installations erected as an array of worlds to discover and explore. Presented on St. Helen’s Island, the original Expo 67 site, the exhibition will bring this memorable adventure back to life while winning over visitors from all generations. This exhibition is produced in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).

The project is part of the Plan culturel numérique du Québec

From April 26 to October 8, 2017 

An outdoor guided tour of the former Expo 67 sites on St. Helen’s Island will be offered to the public. 

This new outdoor exhibition, located in the Stewart Museum courtyard will feature 16 oversized photographs by Quebec filmmaker and photographer Jean-Louis Frund, who took iconic shots of Expo 67 and bequeathed his collection of 1,077 original photographs, most shot in color on 35 mm film, to the McCord Museum. 
Among the subjects captured by his lens were the construction of the islands, pavilions, and La Ronde as well as the activities and throngs of visitors during the summer of 1967.

From May 2018 to March 2019 

In the 18th century, Paris was already recognized as a capital of European fashion and luxury, where travelers flocked to find table services, cutlery or timepieces. This new exhibition showcases a selection of objects from the most fashionable French factories and artisans of the time.
