Montreal Family Activities May 2023

April showers may have brought more May showers but they’ll be a glimmer of warm weather soon enough, lots of sunscreen needed! Start planning for a warmer month with tons of fun outdoor (and indoor) activities the kids will love. Here’s my roundup of the Montreal family activities May 2023 has to offer.

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon at the Planetarium – May 3 – June 21

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s famous album, the Planetarium will be putting on a show that pairs the band’s music with a visual celebration of the solar system. The 42-minute show may be suited for older kids.

Tickets start at $22.75.

Space Explorers – The Infinite – May 3 – July 3

This travelling immersive experience makes a stop in Montreal for the summer. Inspired by NASA missions, guests will feel like they are in the international space station seeing a 360-degree video of space. The 1-hour show is recommended for kids who are 8+.

Tickets $46/adults, $29/kids

Fun Show Amusement – May 4-28

This classic mall parking lot fair is back for another season. The show will be visiting Carrefour Angrignon from May 4-14 and then Place Vertu from May 18-28. With tons of rides, there is sure to be something for every age.

Bracelet for unlimited rides $37

Flower Pot Building – May 13

The Home Depot’s kids workshops series is back and this one has spring in the air. From 10am -12pm, kids can create their own flower pot for free. A great Mother’s Day gift! At the time of publication, space is still available at the Beaubien and Anjou locations.

La Ronde Opening – May 20

Montreal’s very own amusement park opens for the season on May 20th. Early season pass deals have ended but if you plan on visiting the park more than once this season the Platinum pass is worth checking out. It gives you access to fireworks evenings, as well as entry into Six Flags New England and the Great Escape.

Eureka Festival – May 26-28

Celebrate all things science at this 3-day festival that takes place at the base of the Biosphere in Parc Jean Drapeau. The free event features over 75 outdoor activities. Just a few that stood out are a bridge building challenge, cooking with crickets class and the chance to meet an underwater cameraman,

Museum Month – May 1-31

Museum Day no longer exists but the entire month of May is devoted to our city’s museum. Make it a point to explore this month by purchasing the Excursion+ card which gives you access to museums for 3 days in a row. Each additional child is just $10. It’s a great opportunity to check out some new exhibits like Hockey at the Montreal Science Centre and Egypt at Pointe-a-Calliere.
