Languages, art, science and fun for students of all ages! French -- being Montréal’s first language -- a visit to the city is a perfect opportunity for genuine French-immersion experience. Montréal is a city of artists. Which means that in addition to several excellent museums, such as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée d’Art Contemporain, art is everywhere. A visit to Old Montréal is like going back in time—it’s an open-air museum of French and British architecture dating back to 1684. A visit to Montréal’s science and technology museums is like a trip to the future. For nature fans, monkeys frolic and sloths hang out in a jungle at the Biodôme, while penguins dive and soar underwater in the sub-Antarctic ecosystem. Be enthralled by Trapezium, Montréal’s flying trapeze centre, the Centre d’Escalade Horizon Roc, for indoor rock climbing, or the circus arts at the École du Cirque de Verdun and TOHU. Stay in fantastic hotels centrally located close to the Old Town.
