  • A bit of a disappointment. Presented as for all ages, in fact if you don't have kids not worth losing time

  • Visited with my son, daughter in law and grandchildren (2 and 4). What a great dayout it was - and I didn't see all of it, by any means. It's a big place, which means there's an attractive sense of sp...  more »

  • Its a lovely place to bring family and kids to learn and explore about science. Its a multi leveled building showing many exhibits continuously changing so don't miss out! Its a fun and interactive adventure to learn. There are scientist roaming the area, so if you have a science like question they will answer! They also have a cafeteria to buy and eat food in. The parking lot has great space. Finally, large groups or a class can do a separate adventure or even labs with a scientist for a class trip.
  • Awesome place. I go to university in the USA and was here on a visit and wanted to check out a place like this. I wish I went earlier in the day because I could have easily spent all day here reading and trying everything. It’s a great balance of things to enjoy at all ages, but I especially appreciated how good the things were for the kids and it was cool to see them really get excited about science and learning. Definitely recommend!
  • We brought out kids here and so we spent the entire time doing things with the kids. The kids love all the kids sections but they've always loved the grocery store the most. That changed this year when they found the garden. They were picking plush vegetables and loading up a wheelbarrow followed by replanting. There's always stuff to do here and it's a great place for the entire family.
  • An interesting place for kids to visit. Seems like most of the exhibits are best suited for kids aged 3 - 12 years old. There is a toddlers area which is a fun play place for the younger kids. Also there is an interactive water play area for the young kids so be prepared with a change of clothes. Their nature section was quite interesting. It talks about the different types of trees in North America, including a huge 6 foot tree trunk. I was a little disappointed with President Choice brand product placement in the toddler section.
  • I've been coming to the Science Centre since I was in grade school and all my trips have always been memorable. From standing your hair up with static electricity, to 3D printers and the latest science, there is fun for everyone. Now I take my 3 year old there and she loves it too. If you want your kids to love learning then this is the place to get started. Not to miss!
