Officially verified by the Quarter To Five team – these are the hidden gems & must-see’s for your next adventure to Montreal.

Make the most of fall in Montreal. There’s never a shortage of things to do in the city, so here’s just a sample of what we’re getting up to in the coming months.

The Infinite
The world’s largest virtual reality experience has opened in Montreal. How cool is that? This VR experience at the Arsenal Contemporary Art gallery in Griffintown is a chance to see the view that only astronauts can see. Basically, it’s an hour-long experience that includes 35 minutes of free-roaming VR. Where do we sign up?

La Grande Dégustation de Montreal
Montreal’s largest wine event is going down for three days, from November 15 to November 21st. Need we say more?

M For Montreal
M for Montreal is a music conference and festival that takes place every November. Here you can see both local and international bands and artists across the city.

Gardens of Light
From early September through to Halloween, you can take a trip to the Montreal Botanical Gardens to see the annual lantern display. The gardens even stay open late on weekends for a nighttime adventure.
