It's a great center, but we were overrun by what I assume was every Montreal-area elementary school class. It was insane the amount of kids let loose with like one adult watching, and unfortunately one older kid knocked over my toddler in the Mini Mondo area. It's supposed to be an area for young kids, but there was a school group of about 11 years old shrieking their way through it. Not saying it wasn't enjoyable but it was a bit much with all the unsupervised groups. I had to rent a wheelchair and caught kids playing on it when I left it for a moment to the bathroom. Random kids hanging out in the family bathroom as well.

Overall we were disappointed with this science centre. Seeing as it was 29 dollars, we were expecting it to be amazing, they also charge more for tourists which is pretty annoying considering it's already very expensive.

In regards to the museum itself, it was very centered to children which can be fun but I wouldn't recommend for adults, as it wasn't stimulating enough for us. The astronaut part was very good but the other parts we didn't learn as much as we thought we would, it was too childlike.

Very difficult to find meter parking in the area, so you’re often left with no choice but to pay the $25.00 to park at the pier in the Old Port. A rip-off! This, of course, on top of the over-priced Science Centre. Compared to other science centres I’ve been to across Canada, this one is mediocre, at best. Most is basic, hands-on stuff—sounds okay, but awful during cold and flu season...or a global viral outbreak! No thanks. There are plenty of better educational places in the GMA for kids.

This place is amazing dor kids. We were visiting from New York and only stayed in Montreal for one day - very cold day. So we decided to spend time indoors. Was there with two kids of 9. They were amazed by so many things, they absolutely loved the experience. I suggest to get a map or good understanding of how big this place is, so you won’t get stuck in one place for too long. We got to spend like two hours in the area of challenges and building, and then we realized there was so so much more to see, which we had a very little time left for. So we didn’t see it all. But what we saw and dis was amazing for kids. Highly recommend this place.

My 7-year-old son just loved this place. We easily spent 4 hours here. Ticket price very reasonable. Definitely recommended.

Terrific hands on museum. My four year old son had a ball--but there was also plenty that was for older kids too.

Perhaps a great place for small kids, elementary, maybe middle school; we, two adults with our teenager, found very few things that interested us. Unlike, say, Ontario Science Center in Toronto, this one can't be described as "for all ages". To add insult to injury, 1 exposition was closed for some special event, and several most popular objects were out of order. Definitely overpriced.

The Montreal Science Center is an oddly-designed museum with minimal signage. Lots of hands-on activities are probably exciting for younger kids especially. Our scientifically-minded nine-year old son was intermittently interested, found the experience ok, not great. Overall, meh.

We spent most of the day at the science center. My son loved this place, they have tons of hands on activities, it is very educational and it is well planned out for kids. The only thing that might annoy some people is that a lot of schools from the area come to visit the center, it did not bother us at all.
