Montreal Family Activities in April (Reservations Required)

Montreal Family Activities in April (Reservations Required)

Hello spring. The snow has melted and the weather is warming up and all we want to do is get outside our four walls. But the reality is that the third wave of Covid is upon us and we still need to be super safe. Every Friday, I round up some weekend activities on my Instagram feed, but that has proven to be difficult as many local attractions are now requiring reservations (sometimes weeks in advance) to partake safely. Hopefully, this list of Montreal family activities in April 2021 will help you get planning to make the most of spring (masked and distanced) in our beautiful city.

Quinn Farm Easter Egg Hunt – Round 2 – April 10 & 11

There are just a couple of spots left for this Easter egg hunt which also took place the first weekend of April. Due to Covid, instead of searching for eggs, children will receive a basket and then collect eggs through tubes at 10 different stations. Reservations required, $2/admission, $10/hunter

Ilumi – Extended until April 11

If you haven’t been to this Laval-based outdoor light show yet, it has been extended so you can enjoy the Easter-themed decorations. Walk or drive through the 3KM experience. Reservations required, $15.50-$29.50/guest

Build Your Own Rocket Ship Virtual Event – April 25

This free, virtual event is being put on by PJ Library and will feature Mad Science. Kids will learn how to build a rocket ship made from materials found at home, and discover the connection between Israel and space. Reserve your spot here.

Anytime Activities:

While these Montreal family activities aren’t date specific you will still need a reservation to guarantee your spot.


The newly renovated Biodome brings nature inside with tons of new features, but you’ll have to book a time to ensure that proper social distancing can be followed inside the museum. Only 25 new visitors are allowed inside every 30 minutes. Buy your tickets here.


Tickets to the Ecomuseum must be purchased at least 24 hours in advance of your visit. All of the outdoor pathways are open but inside venues are temporarily closed. Buy your tickets here.


This train museum located in Saint-Constant is open Friday through Saturday this spring. While some of the activities are closed, including the tramway rides and toddler island, the main attractions are still available to those who reserve in advance here.


Go Karting recently reopened in Montreal and Kart-O-Mania is taking great precautions to make sure this activity is not only fun but safe. Only 1 family may ride at a time, wearing masks. The track is open Friday through Sunday from 12-8pm and reservations are required. 514-725-0909

Caden’s Lighthouse

This recently opened, multi-sensory environment located in Montreal West, is the ideal destination for children with special needs, as well as the younger set. During Covid, reservations are required as only 8 children, plus an adult, are allowed in at any one given time. Weekends are currently booked up through to the end of May but weekday spots are available here.
