Owner description: The Cosmodome is Canada's only world-class museum devoted entirely to astronautics and space exploration. This institution's mission is to stimulate the interest of the young and young at heart, here and abroad, to space science, scientific literacy and careers related to the world of astronautics. To this end, the Cosmodome draws upon the fascinating history of space exploration - the outstanding achievements and tremendous challenges of space pioneers and interplanetary travel's new explorers.

We came on a two day trip to Montréal with the kids, and our first stop was at the Cosmodome which is located in Laval Québec. We had done a bit of research on their web site which is quite good. We had planned to do one virtual mission, and the kids picked the Red Planet. It was really well done with a combination of video and computer simulations, including running around the room selecting components for a base station on Mars. A simulated drive on the surface with the Rover was also interesting given the time constraints that are imposed on your activity.

The regular exhibit is also very good, although not large. The true scale model of the planets is very well done. The exhibit also included some history including Newton and Galileo. We will be watching for more fun missions to do in the future.

Weant there with the Grand children, while waithing, they saw the activities of the SPACIAL CAMP, not accessible! We then went on the Normal TOUR very well done, making us compete to answer some question about space - BUT coming out , the children asked about the SPACIAL CAMP not accessible, so this is good to visit but create somes frustration!

I have to say, I came here with a very excited mind and my girlfriend with a mind ready for disapointment!. I am happy to say we were both blessed! We only did one mission and I have to admit two might be a bit repetitive but the one we did ( the moon one) was great! The games were very well done et the setting really cool! You felt like in a startrek ship and everything was so technological! The exhibition however is quite small but very interesting and every worker there is very enthusiastic and they seem to really know and care about the subject. There is this really cool zone only open for camps or birthday reservation that I would love for them to open to the general public because unfortunately, I dont have 10 friends :(

We have basically gone every summer with our boys for years... They enjoyed it in the past and our oldest did a week of Space Camp 5 years ago... Now the new themed Missions have brought the museum to a new level. We did the Mars Mission, and my 11 year old loved it!
