Montreal Family Activities April 2022
Hello, 6th wave. We won’t let you get in the way of us having fun this month. With a combination of masks on and outdoor activities, there are plenty of fun events and outings that are making Montreal feel like the busting city it once was. Here’s my roundup of Montreal family activities April 2022 has to offer.
Women and Girls of Science: Science Crush Edition – April 3
Girls under the age of 17 can go to the Montreal Science Centre for free on this day from 10am to 5pm. Each of the museum’s four exhibits has been matched with a female ambassador who will talk about her career, including a doctor, a video game designer, an aerospace engineer and a science communications professional.
Easter Fun Day for Kids – April 9
Easter-themed activities are hard to come by this year so sign up early for this drop-off activity in DDO, put on by Youth Stars. Two sessions will be held (9:30-12:30 and 1:30-4:30) where kids 5-12 will make chocolate treats, participate in an egg hunt and races, and create crafts.
$25/child registration required here
Monster Spectacular – April 9
The Olympic Stadium is about to get a visit from the biggest vehicles around with this special event. Twelve of the world’s best monster trucks are back for an evening (7pm) of thrilling stunts and tricks. They will compete on an all-new track featuring side-by-side races, freestyle, wheelie contests and more!
Easter Egg Hunt at Quinn Farm – April 9-10 & 15-18
Since the Easter farms won’t be coming to a mall near you this year, plan to head out to Quinn Farm. Aside from seeing the farm animals, kids can participate in an Easter egg hunt where they will have to catch eggs at 10 different stations. In Covid Halloween style, the eggs will be dropped through a tube at each station. The Easter bunny will also be on-site giving out chocolate.
$5/Admission, $5/Egg Hunt, Reservations required
Insectarium Reopening – April 13
After being closed for two years, the Insectarium is reopening in what it is calling a metamorphosis. Now 40% larger, the museum will not only feature butterflies but other insects making it the first museum in North America to mix various species. The goal is to show how important insects are to our societies and how to respect them.
Vikings at Pointe-à-Callière – Starts April 14
A new exhibit is opening at this Old Montreal museum with a focus on the Dragons of the Northern Seas, aka Vikings. The exhibit explores mythology, Scandinavian society, navigation and more. 650 objects and artifacts will be on display.
Scooby Doo! & the Lost City of Gold – April 24
Postponed from January this special show at Place Bell brings Scooby and friends to the stage. The show is at 3pm and tickets are still available.
There’s also still time to visit a sugar shack, including our favourite.
