  • We only visited 2 sections of the museum, the human body (from conception to death), and Science 26, which was devoted to more physics things. Nearly every display was hands on, and the place was full...  more »
  • My son loves science and he could have spent much more time there, unfortunately, the museum closed at 5pm on a Saturday, which seems a little early for a place catering to kids. The CSI exhibit was g...  more »
  • We had a terrific time here. They had a CSI interactive section were you have to use science to solve the mysteries. It is a great place for families. Also in the area is a Rope Course. Great fun  more »

  • Very cool place to take your kids. A lot of interactive exhibits! They have this cool satellite dish that allows you to hear a whisper from a corresponding dish about 100m away. Solar powered airplane mobiles, and a machine that lets you put a soap bubble as tall as yourself as you pull the lever. Very cool!
  • I was really looking forward to the Game On exhibit and had a blast. It was grand prix weekend so it was empty and we were able to play all the games with no wait. Some controllers were not fully functional but otherwise every game worked well. We even got to try the Oculus. Our ticket also came with access to the main science exhibit and although it is aimed at children to teach them science we really enjoyed it especially since it was so quiet that we could interact with all the exhibits. The CSI exhibit was also a lot of fun, I would have liked a little more of the science behind the technology but even so the hands on approach was really cool and kids must love it.
  • High quality, clean science center in the heart of old Montreal. Ignore the hours posted on google. Generally, they open at 10. Arrive at 8:30 if you want great parking in the nearby garage. The toddler area is lovely. Foam blocks, ball roller coasters, engineering, a mini house, lights and movement sensing room make it a great stop for kids up to about 6. The only elevator is right by the ticket office, so prepare for a bit of a walk if you have a stroller and this is your first stop. Upstairs there are three areas included in general admission. The farthest back includes too many activities to count: bubble tunnel, optical illusions, senses, huge kaleidoscope, chairs of nails, momentum activities and more. There's a lot of activity in one place. The middle section on the human body was very well done and engaging. Go ahead, pull out a rope representing someone's intestines! We would have stayed longer at this exhibit if the makers studio hadn't been so great. Opening later at noon, they have all kinds of stations to practice making things. Boats, fans, wind cars, gardening, electricity. It was the best facilitated, supplied and organized hands-on exhibit I've ever seen. Older and younger kids will enjoy it. We didn't see any of the IMAX or CSI exhibit but we were very satisfied. The gift shop was great and the cafe up front was well stocked with prepared foods and simple drinks.
  • Fun hands-on science museum for kids. Smaller exhibit area than you'd imagine from the size of the building.
  • Beautiful building. Imax theater has recently been upraded and the moving expositions are usually very interresting. The permanent exhibitions are also a must and very cleverly created.
