La Maison des arts de Laval
The Maison des arts de Laval is a small-scale cultural hub. The main hall, the Théâtre des Muses, hosts a diverse program and features an intimate atmosphere that brings the audience closer to the performers. Before the show, you can take a look at the visual art exhibition at Salle Alfred-Pellan, or enjoy the studio or courtyard, which itself regularly transforms into a musical zone.
All sections of the building are wheelchair accessible, although some have permanent adaptations that may require assistance from the ushering staff. In the auditorium, there are 9 reserved seats and 19 additional removable seats.
Inaugurated in 1979 and named in tribute to Quebec’s great composer, Salle André-Mathieu hosts nearly 300 shows and some 160,000 spectators each year. This institution was completely refurbished in 2016. It now offers a comfortable, welcoming environment.
A total of eight reserved seats can be found around the room, in the centre and to the side. The choice is yours! Accessible multi-person washrooms are available, as are assistive listening systems.
