We took our 3 year old (free) and our 4 year old. 2 adults and a child were under $40. 3D Imax was extra. We spent a little over 2 hours wandering around playing with the exhibits. Some were really fun, but for the most part it was just ok. It kept the kids busy, which is all that matters.

I'm not super amused by it but It did entertained me for and hour to 1.5 hra. I thinks is a little bit pricey and probably people that know nothing or have zero interest in science, might get bored. Anyways, I don't regret going but it's not something that I would visit more tha. Just 1 time

It is wonderful, but really just for children. We were disappointed that this was not a "science and industry" type of museum; instead it is an interactive museum for children.

My family and I recently visited the science museum. Had it not been for the fact that we were hungry and I had to leave to feed my toddler we would've spent the entire day at the museum. There was plenty for the kids to do, both big and small. We look forward to visiting the museum again during our... More

My twin daughters and I just came back from visiting the Montreal Science Centre and it was a great experience. We spent more than four hours there and it flew by. By far, the best experience was the hands-on manufacturing / crafting exhibit. There are eight stations / tables and at each, you're asked to MAKE a technological solution to... More

My family was a little tired of walking the city and wanted an easy day. We headed over to the science center in Old Montreal on the water. We went to an beautiful IMAX movie and to the traveling exhibit "GAME ON". If you are or were a gamer at any point of your life, you would enjoy this exhibit.... More

Great location. Easy to find. Nice facility with plenty of exhibits. Typical science centre (we've been to lots all over North America). Awesome temporary exhibit called Game On. Was a busy weekday when we went...lots of summer camp kids, but still managed to see lots. Try to go later in the afternoon to avoid crowds.

We enjoyed the many hands-on exhibits and the Game On exhibition was of particular interest to my kids who could have easily spent hours and hours on the various arcade games. We were lucky and, despite the rain outside, it wasn't too busy so we had easy access to the various exhibits.

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.
