Canada, Montreal Guide (B): 5 Things to Do in and around Montreal

Nerds, science buffs, geeks. I never really got the difference, but if you’re one of us you know we all belong to the same family. And if you belong to the family and find yourself in Montreal, Quebec, you may want to check out the following places just to keep your nerdy side trained.
