    My mother and I had looked forward to visiting the Barbie museum in Montreal for months leading up to our trip.

    We were scared a few weeks before as it said temporarily closed, but did not stress as this seems to happen often and for short periods of time.

    The expo is free and inside a shopping center, which can be a bit tricky to find if you are not familiar with the area. Admission is free.

    We were amazed at all the Barbie’s. Each section was themed such as cultural, wedding, celebrity, fashion, and so on.

    Some people could get through the expo in 15 minutes, but we probably spent an hour here admiring the beautiful dolls.

    Great for all ages.

    Wonderful museum to spend a few hours in. Good for both kids and adults. A throw back museum that is focused on the exhibits without electronics. Great in general but especially when the weather is cold and nasty

    Île de la visitation is a beautiful nature park in Northern Montreal and is an ideal place for a day out or picnic with the family. There are some beautiful trails to do some long walks and do some exercise. There is also some great spots for photos. You will enjoy a visit for sure.

    We noticed this place across the road from our AirBnb and thought we would give it a go. It’s an Hour session and Ben, our instructor, helped us start. It is harder than it looks but once you get a few throws to stick, you get addicted!! Make sure you do the interactive game with changing targets and games to play. Definitely need to try at least once in your life!

    We have seen this area, also known as Parc de Dieppe, from the Vieu Port. While not easy to get to, it is worth the trip. Great view looking back onto Old Montréal. Places for relaxing, BBQ, and seeing fireworks when on at the Six Flags amusement parc. Discovered some neat surfing area on the South side of the peninsula, too. There is some car parking under a highway just before you enter the parc. You leave the main road, don’t go to the Casino! Accessible also by bike, bus, walking. The parc is a food desert, so plan to bring what you want to eat, drink with you.

    The decor and props were great! Everything functioned well and there was a good variety of puzzles and challenges. Loved the costumed character who introduce you to the ‘mansion’ and explained the room. Our only complaint was that the room was uncomfortably warm and could really use a few fans. Overall we had a great evening and plan to come back and try the other rooms!

    This open air museum is free to enter and is located at the end of canal Lachine. There are numerous structures at permanent display here which may require a few hours to explore thoroughly. The area is very popular with locals on a weekend for picnics and gathering. If you want to have more space and peace to explore, it's better to go during the day.

    My kids are ages 5-11 and they had an amazing time! They learned different saber and combat moves and choreography, and then had a blast duelling. I definitely recommend this to star wars fans

    I was part of a party of 2 here and we were able to finish the murder mystery game without any troubles. You do need to be ready to order (and therefore pay for) quite a bit, but they do have some alcohol-free options available for at least some of the drinks on the list required to complete the game, so if you're overwhelmed by the idea of drinking a lot to "win" a game, bring a friend and take your time and you'll be just fine.

    Great way to get to know Montreal. Our tour guide Jeff was fabulous. We did the tour with our two year old so it’s doable for families with small children.

    Best place to go see stand-up in Montreal. These are not amateurs. They are all preselected and must pass an interview. Most of the best comedians come here to run through their routines pre-gala or pre festival. You never know who will show up. Definitely a cheap way to see some of Quebec's best comedians up close.

    Service is great. The waiters are always kneeling or bending to make sure you can always see the show. American style comedy club. Call early to reserve your tickets because they sell out real fast.

    I have been at least three times and never been disappointed.
