Charter a bus to Montreal Science Centre

Charter a bus rental to the Montreal Science Centre

The Montreal Science Centre is home to many exciting science and technology exhibits. But due to its location on the King Edward Pier in The Old Port of Montreal, it’s not the easiest place to find parking. When visiting the Montreal Science Centre with a group, be sure to look into renting a Montreal charter bus to get you there and get you home safely.

Why charter a bus for the Montreal Science Centre

Parking at the Montreal Science Centre is limited to the King Edward Quay and the Clock Tower Quay. While both of these lots provide convenient access, they require a per-hour payment based on how long you believe your visit will last. Because there is also a lot to do at the Old Port of Montreal besides visiting the Montreal Science Centre, the best way to organize a group visit is to charter a rental bus in Montreal. Depending on the size of your group, a school bus, coach bus, or minibus can be chartered. The latter two will have a few more luxurious amenities than the school bus, but smaller groups can also book a door-to-door shuttle service in Montreal.

About the surrounding area

Once your bus drops you off at the Old Port of Montreal, there’s plenty to do for a full day. You can walk up to the Voiles en Voiles if your group is interested in some high adventure. This pirate-themed amusement park contains ropes courses, climbing walls, water games, and more. But if you didn’t absorb enough knowledge during your visit to Montreal Science Centre, be sure to check out the Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History.    When your group starts to get hungry, there are a number of sit-down restaurants within walking distance of Montreal Science Centre. Modavie is great for French cuisine and Bevo Bar is an option for your group to grab a few slices of pizza. There’s also the Sea Salt and Ceviche Bar, which speaks for itself. And when you’re ready to grab an after-dinner cocktail, it’s hard to pass up Nouvelle Vague, which is located at the end of King Edward Pier and offers excellent views of the river.   

About the Montreal Science Centre

The Montreal Science Centre was first established in 2000 but it didn’t go by its current name until 2002. It was originally known as the iSci Centre. In addition to containing a number of interactive science and technology exhibits, the Montreal Science Centre is also home to an IMAX theater. The movies shown in this theater always contain spectacular imagery and amazing insights into the power of nature, science, and technology. 

 

The center’s interactive exhibitions are a delight for visitors when compared to more traditional museum displays. For example, The Windmills of the Imagination exhibition contains the world’s first electricity-to-water and water-to-wind transformers. Visitors can interact with these transformers and learn some basics of “applied pataphysics,” as well as more about the machine’s inventor. 

 

In addition to the center’s daily operations, the Montreal Science Centre Foundation is dedicated to impacting the local community through a number of initiatives, including an extensive sponsorship program. Each year, the foundation gives out nearly 10,000 free passes for underprivileged youth to visit the science center. They also provide yearly memberships to the Montreal Science Centre for more than 100 underprivileged families in their area.
