We went here on the weekend and they happened to have the dreamworks exhibit, it was really great and really engaging for my 4 year old and for us, adults! The best part though, was the regular science museum part. That was SO MUCH FUN!!...More

Although the Sceince Centre isn't as big as others (such as the Ontario Science Centre) it had quite a bit to keep the kids entertained, especially the Dreamworks exhibit that was featured prominently when we visited. The kids were easily able to kill a few...More

Came to Montreal for a visit (wife, 5 year old, 4 year old, and I). We went to the science center and had a good time. Spent a solid 3 hours and only saw roughly half of it. Lots of good displays, activities, and information.

I went here with my 5 and 9 year old children and they loved it. They did experiments, played instruments, built things and saw an awesome educational movie. There was so much to do that we had to leave for lunch and go back. It...More

We purchased a regular admission at the science centre not sure if we wanted to pay extra for the IMAX shows. The kids ran quickly through the Dreamworks exhibit, unfortunately not finding the framed movie stills and sketches, models or figures of any interest. Not...More

There's just not that much here to justify the admission fee ($26 CDN). Most of the exhibits are clearly targeted for young children - lots of video screens and interactive stuff, but there really wasn't much in the way of science. The special exhibit was...More

The imax and first exhibition was satisfactory, yet the centre is designed too much for young young kids. Teenagers and parents will easily lose interest as the museum is overly interactive and slightly unhygienic from all the children.
