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
The science Centre is a beautiful, spacious facility that goes a long way to making science approachable, inspiring and fun. The static displays are colourful, informative and interesting. The hands on areas were the most intriguing to us and as tourists we wanted to explore and try as much as possible. The Ontario Science Centre, a Centennial project, has welcomed more than 52 million visitors since it opened in 1969, implementing an interactive approach now adopted by science centres around the world. Today, the Science Centre is an international leader in free-choice science learning and a key contributor to Ontario’s education and innovation ecosystems, offering lifelong learning through hands-on, engaging experiences. The Ontario Science Centre is an agency of the Government of Ontario funded in part by the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. As a publicly assisted organization, the Science Centre relies on generous individuals, corporations and foundations who share a commitment to science and education for additional operating support.

This was unbelievably disappointing. I don't understand how anyone could give it a good review. The place was just filled with school children running around, screaming, bumping into you, crowding around exhibits. Aside from that, the exhibits themselves were pretty bad. It's obviously aimed at children so there's very little for anyone older to enjoy. And everything looked very dated and run down. To add insult to injury, the entrance fee is $22. $22! That's insane. There was really nothing I enjoyed. My sister and I left feeling mad that we wasted the time and money coming here. Skip it for something better!
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.
Great for all ages! There are always lots of hands-on experiences to be had, and the exhibits change often enough to stay fresh, but stick around long enough to revisit your favourites. The Planetarium has a great show every hour. It is not possible to get bored! A little on the pricey side, but we'll worth the cost for what they offer.
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.
