Get out there and make the most of today.

Continuum and aurōrae

Continuum and aurōrae are two shows at Montreal’s Planetarium. From the infinitely small to the infinitely large, Continuum is a visual art show that is a connection between humankind and the universe while Aurōra explains and displays the electrifying aurora borealis.

Time: 8 am – 4 pm
Where: Planetarium Rio Tinto Alcan, 4801 avenue Pierre-De Coubertin

Musée Grévin Montreal

If that snowfall has you dreading the outdoors, bundle up inside Grévin and stare at wax celebrity figures. Check out your favourite actors, athletes, and artists in wax form. The figurines are displayed beautifully through the four-floor museum that also features optical illusions and interactive displays. It’s admittedly pretty creepy staring into Elvis’ eyes, especially if he starts melting.
