Les grottes de Lascaux, in France have developped a special technique in order to have some of its content travel to other countries in order for people to actually see and understand this amazing discovery. They are paintings dating to over 20000 years and very unique. The show at the Centre des sciences de Montréal deserves our visit as it is very informative.

The size and volume of exhibitions is about about 1/4 of the Ontario Science. Admission is about the same. Not much to see. We did not pay for the special exhibitions. We only spent one hour there.

My boyfriend and I took his two nephews to the Science Centre for the day, and they talked about it for weeks! The admission prices are quite expensive...as a result we planned on spending most of the day there to make up for it! I guess we picked a busy day to go, because we had to wait in line for about 15-20 minutes just to purchase the tickets. Afterwards, we had to settle for a small, expensive cafe for lunch. It is definitely better to pack a lunch and eat it there--there are not many options food-wise!
Overall, the exhibits were great for children of all ages and all interests. Nearly everything is hands-on, and there's lots of animators there with activities to do (building towers, lego towers, etc). There is an IMAX movie theatre that usually shows a few different movies, depending on the season. For the money, worth spending the day there and really taking your time. Don't forget to pack a lunch!

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!
