Museums, art galleries and performance halls will be throwing open their doors to the night owls.
Whether you’re casually searching for a shooting star to wish on, an amateur astronomer itching to get a closer peek at some celestial objects, or a night owl who just feels at ease with the moon, Montreal has great ways to see the stars during unique nocturnal activities…
The Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium at Espace pour la Vie has a stellar experience like no other. Using state-of-the-art projection technology, you can be transported through the stars as they appear above Montreal in one of their dome shows. See their schedule here.
OK, so we all dreamed of going to space camp as a kid, right? At the Cosmodome, dreams become reality as you complete virtual missions exploring the moon, the red planet, and the far reaches of the cosmos. After you’ve completed your mission, learn more about the universe in the permanent exhibition!
While Putting Edge on Guy near Concordia is only an underground miniature golf place, their psychedelic neon glow course is definitely out of this world! (Think Avatar’s Pandora on acid.) Plus it’s open late until 1 a.m. on Friday & Saturday!
Stargaze in style while relaxing in utter bliss at one of Montreal’s spas with an outdoor experience. (Yes, even in winter!) Both Bota Bota and Strøm Spa offer late-night events at their outdoor thermal pools. Bota Bota is open until 10 p.m. while Strøm spa stays open until 11 p.m. on Thursday!
Vendredi Nocturnes at the MAC allows you to visit the galleries, listen to live music, and hobnob with artists well after midnight. It’s the perfect cultural evening for those who love to stay out late! Check out their website for upcoming events.
During January and February, the Montreal locals brave the chilly weather to dance under the stars during Igloofest. Believe it or not, the mosh pit of snowsuits keeps it rather cozy, even when the temperature dips well below zero! Check out the 2015 line-up.
