Montreal Science Centre

The Montreal Science Centre, in the Old Port, boasts permanent and temporary exhibits as well as an Imax screen.

The Montreal Science Centre has been a source of both entertainment and education for over 15 years. The centre is dedicated entirely to the exploration of science and technology and is well known for its interactive presentation of scientific topics.

For instance, Science 26 covers everything from A to Z – literally. The permanent exhibition features 26 stations, each presenting a concept that corresponds to a letter of the alphabet. Every station gives visitors a chance to explore the concept through hands-on experiments.

Also, for the tiny Einsteins out there, there’s Clic!, a fun zone where children 4 to 7 can explore their creativity while designing houses, roller coasters, and playing with different patterns, colors, and shapes. And with no shortage of temporary exhibits, the centre is always fresh and interesting.

Then there’s Humans, another permanent exhibit that tackles queries concerning the origin of our species. It looks at the evolution of humankind, allowing visitors to learn about the major transformations humans have undergone throughout the course of our time on earth. The exhibition also takes an intimate look at changes that occur within the span of a single lifetime.

The centre is also home to the jaw-dropping seven-storey IMAX theatre, where families can watch visually stunning documentaries that cover a range of subject matter.
