MONTREAL–The huge snowstorm that was supposed to hit Montreal didn’t quite touch down as forecasted, so, with spring break saved, Global News went out to find out what there is to do around the city.

There is a place in Montreal where you can feel the sand between your toes and even break a sweat if you want to.

It’s called Montreal beach and it’s a not-for-profit company.

The 14,000-square feet sand playground is a volleyball court by night and a playground by day.

Families can head to the club everyday this week until Sunday to hang out in the indoor beach from 10:00 a.m. to noon.

Families can learn about history at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts through a series of free workshops, including one where you can make your own coins.

A drop-in al fresco painting workshop is also set up where you can learn the ins and outs of Michelangelo’s trade. A scavenger hunt and more activities are underway.

Drop-in workshops run daily during March Break, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Promenade as well as the scavenger hunt.

Some workshops require registration; all details are on the museum’s website.

Butterflies Go Free

4101 Rue Sherbrooke E

Trace a butterfly’s journey… from caterpillar to the moment she spreads her wings.

You can see it all at the Botanical Gardens greenhouse until April 24. Nature interpreters are on-hand to answer any questions.
