The first edition of Free BIXI Sundays offered by Manulife is coming up on May 28th, which just so happens to be the same day as the Montreal Museums Day. All participating museums will be offering free admission. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a free BIXI ride to your favourite museum. Take advantage of this event and visit more than one. Just a friendly reminder that you can ride for up to 30 minutes for free, and may borrow a bike as many times during the day as you’d like.
Here is a suggestion of an itinerary you can take, so that you don’t miss a thing.
Go to the nearest BIXI station and grab a copy. Let the Montreal Museums Day begin!
1First stop : McCORD MUSEUM
