Montreal Families

Immersive hockey experience at the Montreal Science Centre

Hockey in Canada is almost like a religion, for adults and for kids alike. In Montreal, it’s more than just a pastime, it’s a way of life. So, if you are a hockey-crazed family, a new exhibition at the Montreal Science Centre might be of interest.

From April 7 to September 10, the Montreal Science Centre is hosting Hockey: Faster than Ever, a hockey-themed exhibition, where you can experience what it’s like to be a player for the Montreal Canadiens and test your knowledge of the sport at the same time. Visitors can also experience how science plays a part in hockey life. For example, you can learn about how hockey sticks and ice are made.

The exhibition comprises eight zones:

In zone one, visitors will learn about the history of hockey. This part of the exhibition will feature old hockey equipment and some memorabilia from past Canadiens’ victories.

In zone two, people learn about the rules of the game, and take on the role of referee and decide what penalties to give to players.

Zone three features the science of making hockey equipment, including the art of designing a hockey helmet. In zone four, visitors will watch a documentary film called Ice Breakers, presented in partnership with the National Film Board.

In zone five, visitors will experience the tunnel walk toward the arena and hear adoring fans cheering their name. A replica of the Stanley Cup will also be on hand.

In zone six, visitors can practice their slap-shot and test their accuracy.

In zone seven, you’ll find seats from the old Montreal Forum, and visitors can retrieve archival footage of their favourite Habs greats, from “Rocket” Richard to Carey Price.

Finally, in zone eight, visitors can meet some of the country’s best up-and-coming professional players from women’s hockey.

Ticket prices for this exhibition cost $27 for adults, and $18 for teens. Kids under 12 pay $17.50. For more information, click here.
