  • Went with three kids from 4-10 years old. Easily spent two hours; could have done more. It was engaging time spent in some really hands on and wonderful exhibits in Science 26 (perfect for 6+ to inter...  more »

  • i grew up with Les Débrouillards in the 90s so i had big expectations about this center. a center dedicated entirely to science, it has to be good right? well, it is not so! the permanent exhibits as well as most temporary exhibits are targeted mostly at kids of a very young age which is great for them (introducing them to the world of science, nothing wrong with that) but as an adult or someone over the age of 10, let's just say you'll be bored to death which is a big feat for me as i'm usually able to get fun out of anything.. the saving grace were the Star Wars exhibit as well as the Dinosaurs and the Indiana Jones one.
  • The very first staff member we encountered was very polite, then it was all down hill. An older lady working in the imax theatre very rudely told my party that we were going the wrong way. Using one word and ridiculous hand gestures. The reality is a lot of people coming here will be tourists, and the focus needs to be one making them feel welcome. Then we get to parking. We originally owed eight dollars for parking because we were there less than one hour after the ridiculous service. Then after the first machine we went to had an out of order sign on it, it became a race against time to find another, this machine didn't work, so we went straight to the teller, which it ALSO DID NOT WORK! Then we asked for assistance, and again received very rude service, and because of THEIR MISTAKES, our charge doubled to 16 dollars for parking when we were only in the building for less than an hour. This place is a joke, and I will be telling my Ontario friends to stick to the Toronto science center which runs much better for the people paying for the facilities.
  • Great place. Expositions are a good value to bring kids so that they learn interesting stuff
  • It's only good for kids, which isn't a bad thing, but I don't have kids and I sure wasn't satisfied with what I've seen.
  • Really fun place. The permanent exhibitions are great fun (who doesn't love having a large soap bubble forming around you!), and the other exhibitions change yearly or so. I went when they had the Star Wars exhibition, it was pretty awesome. Great place for family, lots of things to do (especially since you are already in the Old Port), highly recommended!
