Centre des sciences de Montréal is great for kids. They learn while having fun. I have lived in Montreal for four years and this was my first visit. My 3 years old had plenty of fun. I will be coming back often.

The Montreal Science Center was a great place to visit with children. The hands-on rooms were a lot of fun for the 4 - 9 year olds traveling with us. The Lascaux exhibit was expensive but interesting and worth the cost.

We were really impressed with the Science Centre. Our two-year-old son loved the Clic play area, and the rest of the museum had some very cool exhibits for older kids and adults. Great location and definitely worth a visit.

A very entertaining and informative exhibit in Old Montreal. Our daughters (aged 8 and 6) had a great time. Let me put it this way; we stayed for about 4 hours and even after that lengthy a visit they didn't want to leave. We ended up bribing the girls with ice cream to get them to leave. Lots of fun/informative/interactive... More

If you are coming with children to Montreal, this is a MUST visit. A museum where you can touch almost everything. My 4 year old was not excited about the Caves exhibit but my 11 year old loved it. Spent the better part of the day here.

when gauging a science museum at kids you really have to use relativity. How long were the kids kept interested? how interactive are the activities? how varied is it? I think the montreal science center really fails at this. there is in effect 1 interesting room in the entire complex. in the room there are a lot of things for... More

Sorry to read your comment about your visit at the Montreal Science Centre. The Lascaux exhibition was more adult oriented, which is an exception and starting right now, we're in the process of refreshing our entire offering. If you do come back to Montreal, we hope you'll give the Montreal Science Centre another try as we are convinced the changes... More

My 2-year old could not get enough of the science museum... and frankly, neither could we! They have an activity area meant for 4 to 7-year olds, which I thought might be out of my kid's age range. Nonsense. He had so much fun testing out the different materials and with the different games offered by the area, that we... More
