  • I feel like we missed what was great about this place? The dinosaur exhibit was interesting but our four year old was terrified of the animatronics so we decided to go upstairs and tour the rest. It was dirty, most of the exhibits didn't work or were old and outdated. Definitely wasn't worth the money. There just wasn't much to do for how much it cost.
  • Had a great time here! Obviously a lot of work has gone into making this an awesome place for families. Friendly staff, great location (right on Polson Park, minutes from a water park for kids, across from a Tim Hortons and a Starbucks), and lots to learn.
  • The new dinosaur exhibits are wonderful!
  • Come for the lizard stay for sending super fun science lessons
  • Great for kids. Staff are excellent
