From Frogger to Pacman, floors of old as well as new video games. Could spend nostalgic hours playing games. The science aspect was nothing spectacular.

My kids (9 & 5) spent 3.5 hours in the Fabrik room. They both asked to go back tomorrow. I am afraid I can't really review the rest of the museum. Free entry with ASTC.

It's a good science center with different age appropriate areas. I enjoyed Science 26 permanent exhibit and the kids still talk about Mindball. It's a device that measures opponents brain waves to see who can get the ball over the opponents line first. It had multi-generational families engaged and laughing. We were fortunate that there was a free, outside science... More

Cool visit right in old port Montreal. My son and I went for the game on exhibit and also enjoyed the entire museum. Very interactive and cool things for kids and adults to do. Great for school trips as well.

This isn't a review of the actual exhibits, because those look kind of cool if my kids were able to experience them. We visited on a week day at the end of March and after we bought our tickets, upon entering the exhibits, we found them completely overrun with school groups. The groups were kids of various ages and were... More

Great place to take a 4-7 year old when in Montreal. Exhibits paired with an IMAX movie is a good deal.

March break and the grandkids wanted an adventure. We rented a minivan from Alamo and drove 2 hours to Montreal. The parking costs $16.00 and you have to walk 10 minutes to the front door. It costs $15.00 each to get in. Unfortunately half the exhibits were closed for repairs. No reduction in the entrance. We saw everything in 90... More

Just okay. The odd part is it feels like it's a big space, but without that many things to do. Sure, my 3 year old had a lot of fun, but we only spent about 3 hours here and was hoping it would occupy her for longer. Science 26 is the core of the traditional science museum content. It was... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
