The Belvedere is a beautiful multifaceted venue on the King Edward Quay in the Montreal Science Centre. It consists of a hall, huge covered balcony and a lovely rooftop terrace. This former hangar can be used for events like corporate functions, weddings, cocktail parties, product launches and galas. The stunning backdrop of sweeping vistas of the Old Port, Old Montreal, the river and Parc Jean-Drapeau add to the beauty of this place.
Montréal Science Centre is a science and technology center that has quickly become one of the Old Port's biggest attractions. Along with the IMAX theater, there are a number of major permanent exhibitions including the world's first electricity-to-water and water-to-wind transformers, and various temporary exhibitions which anchor the museum. Experience science in a whole new way as the hands-on and interactive exhibits open your eyes to new wonders, and teach you a lesson or two about how science functions in our daily life. Helping children and adults translate text book knowledge in to reality, Montréal Science Centre is not just an attraction, but also an invaluable educational resource. The food court is on site and will keep you fueled as you uncover the mysteries of science.
The oldest existing building in the city of Montreal, erected between 1684 and 1687, this seminary stands as a testament to the Sulpician nuns, under whose stewardship the fledgling province of Quebec developed. Designed by François Dollier de Casson, salient features include the field-stone walls, lush gardens and the oldest church clock on the continent, itself a striking piece of work. The building is a sober piece of work, more an artifact of colonial pragmatism than a religious monument.
Notre-Dame's twin towers have served as an Old Montreal landmark since the Neo-Gothic basilica was finished in 1829. Today they continue to be the focal point, where tourists disgorge from buses and calèche drivers line up for passengers. The interior glows with gilded statuary and gold-leafed fleurs de lys, and is home to one of the largest pipe organs in the world. The Montreal Symphony Orchestra performs its Christmas production of Messiah here at the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal or the Notre-Dame Basilica. Check website for opening hours for visitors.
