I am visiting Montreal and Quebec City later this year. Does anyone know of or have any suggestions of space-related places that are worth a visit?

The Canadian Space Agency is located just south of Montreal in Saint-Hubert, but according to their website, they do not offer public visits anymore.

You might have more luck visiting the Cosmodome located just north of Montreal in Laval. It is described on their website as a "world-class museum devoted entirely to astronautics and space exploration".

Strange coincidence. I'm staying at a hotel in Montreal whose owner uses it to store/show his art collection. This Robert Ruschenberg painting of a Saturn IB is right outside the door to my room!

I visited the CSA in Saint-Hubert in 2010. And agreed, no tours or anything. I was there for about 30 minutes just walking around and having the guards tell me there were no tours or anything.

You can see a replica of a space shuttle robot arm in their lobby from the outside but I couldn't get a pic of that. This is the best I could do:
