Montreal Science Centre gets creative with these Spring Break activities

For the first time in its history, the Science Centre will not be receiving visitors this spring break. But the tradition goes on! In addition to preparing for a safe reopening, our team is offering a set of science activities for families to enjoy, including a science photo rally.

You'll find

  • A science photo rally with a terrific prize

  • Games to play and experiments to do at home

  • Antistress exercises for the entire family

  • IMAX® films for travelling in the comfort of your living room

A photo rally that takes you outdoors Science is everywhere and it is more important than ever to get some fresh air, so the Science Centre is inviting young people to grab their phone or digital camera and join the Explore Your Break photo rally. Inspired by the Explore exhibition, which introduces key principles of science and technology, the photo rally is a challenge in 7 categories, with prizes provided by Volvo and Ubisoft Education.

From the Science Centre to your living room While waiting to reopen its doors, the Science Centre is offering online activities so that families across Quebec can get their fill of science while having fun:

Entertaining experiments With more than twenty experiments to do at home, ScienceXpress is the perfect family activity. In addition to being instructive, it inevitably generates its share of memories, laughter and "wow". Find an experiment that appeals to you and let science surprise you.

Antistress exercises Take a break from stress. The Montréal Science Centre offers four exercises that help you reduce and manage everyday stress and learn to relax. A great way to start building good habits and taking care of your mental health.

Online games Video game enthusiasts can face some major challenges on our website: climate change (Climate Tactics), fake news (Truth or Lie? The Game), a mysterious epidemic (Morbus Delirium), and even a murder to solve (Autopsy of a Murder).

IMAX® documentaries at a bargain price Travelling has never been so economical. Until we can enjoy the real IMAX® TELUS experience, fans are invited to explore China, Egypt, Australia and even the Arctic with 8 films at bargain prices. No hotel reservations required. For pictures, please visit our electronic press room.
