Ontario Science Centre - Review
The Science Museum in Toronto called the Ontario Science centre is a wonderful and interactive place to learn more about science whether you are a child or an adult. The awesome displays and activities are designed to increase curiosity and encourage questioning.
It isn’t the kind of museum that you walk around and where you just look at or read the displays. This is a hands-on museum where you get to touch, see and sometimes make science work. There are a lot of activities already to do and a lot can be arranged if you plan to take a huge group. The displays are incredibly vast and varied. There is a Planetarium, an experimental radio station, caves, bird exhibits and a whole lot more. This place is sure to engage kids and grownups for hours together. With so much to touch, taste, feel, make, observe and do, this place is certainly a very unique must visit spot in Toronto.

Ontario Science Centre, Toronto Reviews
I really like it. The kids enjoy it and have a great day. To finish it all in one day you need to come on Sat as they close at 8:00 otherwise it will be hard to finish in one day. It has a lot of activities and things you do by hand. You can come many times and you will enjoy it every time. They have great shows. I recommend to be a member.
The science centre is easily the most fun place to be. Our 7 year old described it as "TOO much fun." I'm 27 years old and absolutely loved it. I had a ball. I would literally go back by myself that's how awesome it is. Great for kids, great for families and great for dates surprisingly. Lots to talk about and fun to have while you're there.
This place is fantastic! I loved coming here as a kid and came the other day with my kids. There are so many levels, and things to see or do! It's always busy, but not as busy on a week day...but that might change in the summer. We spent about 5 hours here. That's not including the break for food. Definitely an all day trip! Perfect for the whole family!
Great place to learn about new things and to let kids explore. Many people aren't aware of the fact that there's also a high school program present in the form of the Ontario Science Centre Science School, which allows students the opportunity to spend a semester of grade 12 in the building. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities and as a student who was a part of it I can say I appreciate the friendships I've formed through it, as well as the education I received. If there's one point of improvement I could see for the Science Centre it's to develop more exhibits for teenagers and adults. While it's crucial for kids to get into science at an early age, many adults don't have the opportunity until later in life and would benefit greatly from areas geared more towards their age group.
Overall it makes for a good experience, especially if you have not been there before, however I would have given it three stars if I didn’t care to support them. They absolutely had some good exhibits which are great for kids, however many hadn’t been updated since I was a young elementary student myself. Many interactive features/games didn’t work well or at all. For people in their mid-twenties and up without kids, I would not recommend the visit if you are paying full price and there are no special exhibits. If it’s one of your options in mind for your Toronto City Pass, it might not end up being a best choice if you may find the things I mentioned an issue.
