Science North, Sudbury

Discover the fun side of science at Science North, a newly renovated museum offering ecosystem exhibits with real resident animals, interactive science installations, a digital planetarium, and even a billion-year-old geological vault. Kids will love the interactive exhibits and butterfly conservatory, but the museum certainly isn't just for the younger audience. Check out the 4D cinema, grab a bite to eat at the museum's restaurant, or bring your own lunch--you could be here a while.

  • Fantastic place to visit if you're a tourist or it's your first time...after that, it's boring. Same exhibits over and over. The most interesting thing was Drifter the beaver...he's very entertaining.  more »
  • This is the second time coming here in four years. I am still surprised at the exhibits and interactive displays for a museum in a town of less than 200,000 people. We got to participate in the Escape...  more »
  • It rocks. Flying squirrels, porcupine, beaver, rocks, interactive science stuff, epic kids programmes, and if viewed from above it's shaped like a snowflake. Do yourself a favour and grab breakfast at...  more »

  • This great place to bring children. My son loved the beaver, porcupine and snake. The food was reasonably priced and my son loved the gift store.
  • It's a awesome place to go for a family trip or for something to do. It is also a great place for children to learn about things but it's fun and active.
  • I loved going here as a child and I still do as an adult, lots of things to see and learn! Great place :)
  • I love this place. It’s one of the nice places here in Sudbury. We got the yearly passes last year And the kids love it. They enjoy the forth floor with all the invention and technology and like to play mine craft of the computers. The third floor is also fun with some precious animals including a beaver and a skank. Second floor has bugs and scorpions, bats and butterflies. Some of them you can hold and take a photo. You also get to taste some fried bugs if you hose to. The cafeteria doesn’t have too many options but we like the fries and onion rings. I would recommend it.
  • Drove 4 hours and was pleased. Really liked how the setup is. The shows were great. The experiments done were great to watch. The explanation was good. The stage were this was done was well thought out. The nature area was better than I thought it would be. Live shows and lots of insects to see and maybe touch. There were lots of staff and they were very friendly. Lots of hands on things. Overall, wasn't disappointed. Would take a day if you did everything and didn't rushed. You could probably squeeze this into 5 hours of you rushed... But you wouldn't have add much fun.
