Montreal Science Centre reopens
The perpetual search for fun family activities just got a little bit easier: the Montreal Science Centre in the Old Port reopened to the public on September 23 and currently has four exhibitions and two IMAX®TELUS films for everyone to enjoy.
Here’s what you can see and do:
Permanent exhibition halls:
Fabrik (for children 8 years and up): put your kids’ innovation skills to the test as they use their creativity to build technological solutions from random objects.
Human: explore the evolution (and the future!) of the human body through demonstrations and hands-on activities.
Explore: an exhibit that delves into the science behind motion, light, air, water, geometry and matter through interactive installations. Budding programmers can even experiment with code.
Mini Mondo: a new, interactive exhibit for children up to the age of 7 that lets them explore their environment through touch, sight, sound and smell.
You’ll also have access to the Copernicus Exhibition with your ticket from any Montréal Science Centre exhibition.
The IMAX®TELUS theatre features two short films (approximately 45 minutes each):
Great Bear Rainforest 3D
The story of one of the last untouched wildernesses in the world; home to grizzlies, sea wolves, sea otters, humpback whales and the mythical Spirit Bear, a rare, white subspecies of black bear.
Sea Lions 3D – Life by a whisker
Discover the story of Otto, the Australian sea lion. Between a jagged cliff face and a roaring ocean lives a colony of unique animals known as Australian sea lions. Adventure into their environment — at once harsh and beautiful— through a classic coming-of-age story guided by one of Australia’s most intelligent and playful animals.
