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.

Good news: most of the following venues happen to be in the same place or very close to each other, so planning your visit will be super easy!
