What you need to know before booking
Number of Attendees
A minimum of 10 attendees is required to book a children’s party.
We recommend one adult for every five children. Please note that these adults are responsible for ensuring that the visit unfolds smoothly.
We offer three different packages for children’s parties:
- Two-hour exhibition package (total duration of 3 ½ hours on site at the Science Centre)
- IMAX® film package (total of 2 ½ hours on site)
- Exhibition & IMAX® combo package (total of 4 ½ hours on site)
Animation can be provided in the exhibition rooms. See the tab for more information about this option.
The party room is available to your group for a maximum of 60 minutes per the time indicated in your contract. You may bring your own food in a cooler or have a meal delivered. You may also bring room decorations (piñatas are not permitted).
A storage space is available to your group for the duration of your visit. A locker and key will be provided to you. Please note that this area is not supervised and that we advise against storing anything of value in the locker as we are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
A non-reimbursable 25% deposit is required at the time the booking is made. The balance owed must be paid on the day of the visit at the Montréal Science Centre’s ticket counter.
Parking is available at the Science Centre. Fees apply. Please refer to the Visitor Information section. Ten-minute drop-off zones are located at the front of the Science Centre to allow parents to drop off their children.
After you make your booking
Please prepare for your event by visiting our website for details about our exhibition and IMAX® programming:
If you have chosen an IMAX® film package and would like to display a photo of your child on the IMAX®TELUS theatre screen, please supply this photo by email no later than five business days before your visit.
In an effort to respect booking times, we ask that all attendees arrive on site 30 minutes prior to the start of their first activity.
Once on site, you may lessen the number of attendees by 10% up to a maximum of 10 absentees. A minimum of 10 attendees is required to maintain the Children’s Party rate. We cannot guarantee the availability of certain activities for groups with a greater number of attendees than indicated in the original booking.
It is essential to plan your commute and ensure that your arrival time matches the time indicated in your booking. Late arrivals may result in the cancellation of certain activities without refund.
You may choose to cancel your booking and your 25% deposit will be withheld accordingly.
Please contact us for further details about our cancellation policy and terms of reimbursement.
