    We were walking along when my wife (her name is Barbie) spotted the Barbie Expo sign. My Barbie being a Barbie doll fan since childhood decided we were going in. No way was I going to object, so I found a nice place to sit and watch a football game on my phone while my Barbie walked among the hundred (yes, hundreds) of Barbie dolls costumed to reflect different cultures, fashion styles and eras, professions, and events. There were Barbies of all ages, ethnicities, and races. There were fancy Barbies and casual Barbies. It was a seemingly endless display of probably every Barbie ever created (and where did they all come from?). There was even a photo booth you could go into and have your picture taken pretending to be a new-in-box Barbie doll. My wife wandered for an hour, I watched the football game until my phone died. My team won. My wife saw all her childhood Barbie's. It was a great day.

    Beautiful building within the McGill University campus with a treasure trove of very interesting displays and exhibits with much variety.
    Great place to visit! Not too big but still much to see! Mummies, dinosaurs, extinct animals, fossils and minerals are some of the interesting exhibits they have for showcase

    Avery gave us so much. A real sense of Jewish life, so many historical facts and SO much food. It was a fantastic 4 hours. We are so glad we chose the Museum tour over other similar options because it as so comprehensive (and fun and filling)

    My partner and I attempted to go one day and trekked out there on the bus. Unfortunately, they don't have English speaking tours every hour. From what I gathered, it's every other hour, so plan ahead. The next tour wasn't for a couple of hours, so we bailed that day and came back the next. And I'm SO glad we did.

    The tour lasts about an hour and we had a lovely male tour guide who was friendly, knowledgeable and a terrific host.

    There's not a LOT to do otherwise, but I say it's a great tour and very historic and should be on everyone's agenda. It does take a bit of time to get there, but it's worth it if you're a history buff.

    They have a cute gift shop, there are some things to see outside, but the main attraction is the back building where you will learn about RURAL life way back when.

    This Catholic Cemetery is located on part of the Mount Royal Mountain. It is the biggest one in
    Montreal and has some important historic people buried here. You can stroll around slowly in car or book a tour to see who is buried here. It is a beautiful Cemetery to come and visit. The main entrance is on Cote Des Neiges.

    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 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.

    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.

    We took a private tour around Montreal on Vespas. Our tour guide was fantastic! He took us all around the city and was knowledgeable, very safety minded, and a lot of fun! We are already planning to return and take another tour. I recommend Montreal Scooters, and Jerome and his staff 100%!

    This tasting exceeded my expectations. Not only was it well organized but the facilitator was very knowledgeable. My husband and I have a greater appreciation for both tea and chocolate. It was also a great introduction to some amazing local companies. I look forward to the next event.

    This gentleman gave us a tour of Montréal like no other we’ve ever had! He was so well informed and educated about Montréal. He is so incredibly talented in his profession and he tantalized us with fun facts and information so well, we then informed passengers on our cruise the next day about everything we had learned from him! It’s well work the most et and the time. He keeps the pace moving. We are seniors and it was just a perfect combo of walking and moving and driving. Loved every minute and love André.
