Fodor's Expert Review Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium

Hochelaga-Maisonneuve Observatory

In early 2013, Montréal got a new, ultramodern, C$48 million planetarium, one of only a handful of planetariums worldwide to have two circular theaters—one for astronomy exhibits and the other a high-tech multimedia venue. Part of the Espace pour la vie complex, this state-of-the-art facility delivers a futuristic experience unlike any other. The permanent exhibit, lets the whole family have fun exploring life on Earth and (perhaps) in the universe through interactive and hands-on stations. Hours vary seasonally.
