“It kept me amused.”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

On a cold, wet and all round terrible day, the Science Centre managed to keep three people in their mid 20’s entertained for a couple of hours. The best bit by far is a unicycle that you can ride on a tightrope. Praise be to science that it is impossible to fall off the unicycle tightrope.

Basically, if the weather turns foul, check out the science centre.

“Great place to drop by!”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Just dropped by on a shim, saw the IMAX & enjoyed Planet Shark : Predator or Prey.
Clean, well organized, just completely enjoyable. New themes offered on a regular basis - worth the trip.

“Loved the sharks exhibit”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Very small facility. Amazing parking lot and large food court for lunch. Older kids age 11 & 12 didn't really like nor spend much time in idTV nor Mission Gaia and even Clic! did not hold the interest of my 6-yr-old. They all really liked Science 26 and we were alone in room - no crowd! Lots of staff and nicely air-conditioned. Really loved IMAx great seats and clean washrooms and salty popcorn and enjoyed Flight of the Butterflies immensely. small Neurones gift shop didn't have much for kids. Really liked Planet Shark exhibit - please don't eat shark fin soup! Close walk to old montreal, beavertails and restaurants and old churches and clock tower and beach.

“Basic”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 via mobile

We decided to visit the Science Museum in Montreal while on vacation in Montreal. We left relatively unimpressed. There are not that many exhibits and several were simply of no interest to the kids (idtv for example). Having been to other science museums, this one can't compete.
