Beautiful, Modern Museum

Tips for Families

This museum is primarily geared for older kids, but all is not lost if you're traveling with little ones. Clic! and Science 26 are the best exhibit area for smaller children. My daughter (age 3) spent over an hour playing in Clic! and had a blast. Older children will love the theater. Just make sure to plan ahead if you're English speakers because English language films aren't screened as often as French language films. If you're planning to see one, you'll need to plan your arrival time accordingly. Don't worry about bringing food; the cafe serves fresh, healthy food and there is popcorn available at the theater.

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly accommodations

If the Science Center is high on your list, consider staying in Old Town, as it will be within walking distance if the weather is nice. We saw the Hotel Nelligan as we were driving in. We stayed downtown at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth, which has a pool and a separate swimming area for little kids. Personally, when traveling with my 3 year old, I strongly prefer suite-style hotels with an in-room kitchen.

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly restaurants

The cafe in the museum is fantastic and has lots of healthy food - what a pleasant surprise! Also, the Science Center isn't far from Chinatown. You could grab dim sum or do what we did - head over to Mai Xiang Yuan for a dumpling feast. Our favorite was the steamed pork and Chinese cabbage dumplings. They're made to order right in front of you, not factory-made and frozen - you can't go wrong at Mai Xiang Yuan! There's a Chinese grocery on the same street, where we re-filled our fruit and snack supply before we went back to the hotel. Walk to Chinatown if at all possible because parking will run you $13+ if you can't get street parking (and you probably can't).

If you are interested in the IMAX movie check online to see what is playing (there is a preview) and then buy your tickets. Note that they shows are played in both French (FR) and English (EN).
