  • Great way to spend an afternoon with the kids that is not in front of a TV. Lots of attractions to keep people entertained for a little while. 
  • Looking for something fun to do with kids 12 and under? The discovery center is the place to go. Cool exhibits (occasionally they have specials) and great learning experience for adults too!

  • I was there with my 4 kids over March break. They loved it! There is nothing that compares to the Discovery Centre experience in the province maybe Atlantic Canada. The Grossology exhibit was really cool some exhibits are a little dated but many more have been updated and are relevant to scientific discovery. We had a blast! and the staff were great and very accessible when we had any question.
  • My wife, kids and I went to the Discovery Centre to see what it was all about. I was impressed with the exhibits on the upper floors. The suspension bridge and the bubble room were cool. I recommend this to any family with little ones.
  • Very fun place to go with the kids. They mostly loved the bubble room and the live show. A lot of the stuff was interesting to me but the kids didn't care.
  • We chose to have our son's 6th birthday party at the centre. We couldn't have been happier with the space & staff at hand. Everything was well coordinated from the get-go and staff were enthusiastic and engaging with the kids.
  • Brought my 4 year old here. I think I had just as much fun as she did. Maybe even more. I found it to be a nice mix of educational and fun.
