Fun science games that are aimed at kids but enjoyed by all. We spent 2 hours there and then came back for the IMAX movie which was a David Attenborough documentary. An impressive screen. Not a must see though!

We are probably spoiled, but the Museum of Science in Boston is so much bigger and better. The layout of the Montreal Science Centre is confusing and the exhibits are sparse. With the exception of Science 26 and idTV, there wasn't much for us. Thankfully, the museum wasn't crowded, and we did enjoy the exhibits we did see and made... More

My children enjoyed the exhibits, and happily spent a few hours here- had to leave as they were closing. Nice way to spend time on a cold winter afternoon.

I was there with my 5 year and 2 year old grandkids, so we focused on those exhibits where the 5 year old could both enjoy and learn. For the 2 year old a staircase is enough to keep her busy and happy. We did not cover the whole museum, but for those that we did, it was a great... More

I visited the Science Centre with my 12YO son recently, and we both left thinking it wasn't all that great. Some of the exhibits were interesting, the best (in our opinion) being the largest of the rooms upstairs, which had lots of hands-on exhibits that we both enjoyed. I thought that the centre was good, but Montreal is a world-class... More

The price isn't bad, but I would suggest to check online first. See if the main attraction is enough for you to want to go all the way there. Yes, it is part of old port, but whats the point of wasting time there.. there are just so much to do in Montreal! I've been there several times, the best... More

Our family wasn't impressed. The building seemed odd and felt confusing. We have been to many other children's museums that were put together better than this. I think it had a lot to do with the inside of the building and the feeling of confusion it left us with.

I had a few hours to spend with my 4 year old son this past week, and we decided to go to the Science Museum. I had read reviews that the best ages were 7 to 12 to get the most out of the museum but there are 2 main exhibits that the 4 to 7 year old crowd will... More

This place is a blast, just about everything is interactive. I went with my nephew and sister, we spent about 3 hours, could have stayed a little longer but we had a schedule. We did just about everything, was fun for the grown ups too if you want to play or you can just watch. I would say older than... More
