Art is your passion, you enjoy people and you like to share your knowledge? Why not become a museum guide? Our museum guides are proactive volunteers who enjoy both children and adults and who have a strong team spirit. Guides will follow a training program where they will learn about the history of the Musée, its collections and exhibitions and where they will acquire the necessary presentation and communication skills.

THE BIG MOVE
On February 5, 2015, MAJ’s staff will leave its temporary offices at 110, Place Bourget Nord and move back into the museum. The museum, however, will remain closed to the public till its reopening this coming spring.
Become a member of the MAJ and enjoy exclusive membership privileges including free admission to 360 museums in North America and up to 50% discounts at the Opéra de Montréal, the Festival de Lanaudière, Spa Eastman, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, as well as at many other partner organizations and businesses.
Located almost on Montreal’s doorstep, Lanaudière is one of Quebec’s most beautiful regions, offering visitors a natural environment that still remains largely pristine and untamed. The territory is bounded by the St. Lawrence River to the south and the Laurentian mountain range to the north. Lying between the Laurentides region in the west and Mauricie in the east, it is a vast north-south corridor some 250 km deep and up to 85 km wide, covering an area of 13,537 sq. km. Journeying along its full length, you’ll pass from quite densely populated areas to virtually uninhabited wilderness regions. Lanaudière is a place where natural wonders and culture live in perfect harmony.
