  • Great way to spend an afternoon! Our only regret is that we didn't give ourselves enough time (2 hours wasn't enough for a thorough walk through). We really enjoyed the "introductory video" about how ...  more »

  • A must see location for locals and tourists! You get to see the geology of the area. A centre dedicated to science, got to love it!
  • Great place to let kids of all ages explore an interactive space with neat exhibits that are changed regularly. Probably one of the most ominous venue space in the city with a great 3D replica of the planets hanging above you and great staff bringing your event together
  • Some staff are rude, others great, nice venue for events but the GeoCentre sign stays on in the main event area so kind of takes away the mood of why you are there
  • This uniquely situated science centre presents exhibits that highlight the history of Newfoundland, its geology, and features an indoor "rock wall" that is part of the building (the building is on top of Signal Hill, so they built it to expose the wall as part of the exhibit). It had a cool section on the Titanic but you could probably complete the whole thing in a couple hours and not want to go back. However, the 5 dollar movies did seem like a nice offering if I decided to revisit in the future.
  • Exhibits are new and interesting. I particularly liked the Titanic and space exhibits. Every corner of the building has things to read/view. Also offers guided tours in sections.
