MONTREAL, Dec. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quays of the Old Port and the Montréal Science Centre have all kinds of activities for families over the Holidays: from TELUS Fireworks on Ice to the Quays skating rink, not to mention the three IMAX 3D films now showing at the IMAX®TELUS Theatre and the six exhibitions, including two temporary ones (see them while you still can!), at the Montréal Science Centre! The Quays of the Old Port invite you to make the most of winter in Montréal at this fabulous site. There's something happening every day during the Holidays, even on Christmas and New Year's Day!
