The Montréal Science Centre is nestled in the heart of Montréal’s Old Port, between the historical Old-Montréal district and the St. Lawrence River. The reception hall, created in renovated hangars, offers breathtaking and panoramic views of what used to be the core of the maritime and industrial activities of 19th Century Canada.
