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.

Every time I visit there is always something new to explore! I would hands-down recommend this for children of all ages, as well as adults. There is something for everyone here. I especially like how the vast majority of the things you can do here are hands on, enabling the children to get close and immerse themselves into learning about science rather than simply learning from their teachers. The science centre is also perfect for groups as it is an open place allowing for kids to explore whatever they want. They also screen IMAX movies here, some of which I have watched. Definitely an incredible experience, and would definitely recommend to anyone interested in science.
This is one of my favorite places on planet Earth. My parents brought me here as a young teenager in 1977, and it fascinated me so much - I pursued studies in physics and have had a fantastic 22+ year (so far) career in aerospace. I've been here three times since and look forward to bringing my grandson there one day. The Centre has incredible hands-on exhibits in all major fields of science; chemistry, physics, electromagnetic theory, etc. The exhibits are well-thought, and the maintenance has always been excellent so they always work. The museum itself is clean and spacious, and staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a place to get food (very good) and a fantastic gift shop. I am already looking forward to my next visit. I was always interested in science, but this was the one place that inspired me to learn more and pursue a career in it.
Great spot for kids of all ages, as young as toddlers! It is very hands on and interactive. I learned a lot while I was there and everything is presented in interesting ways. I forgot how big the place is with 6 floors! Parking is easy and not too expensive. Tickets are reasonable especially if you search online for discount coupons. We'll be back!
Awesome place! I went with my daughter and wife and we did a bunch of activities there. We went to the IMAX theatre to see the Panda movie. After that we went straight to the floors where there was some activity to my daughter. She played in the mini market and also build some nice stuff. This is a place where you can spend the day easily.
Love this place. If you have kids you must take them here. Great for learning and well worth the price of admission. Only downside I have is the location - being from across town the traffic can get crazy but for the kids it's always worth it!
I would like to purchase a printable ticket, for next saturday, Dec 15, 2018. attending Compass Canada, Christmas Party.Answer Report Abuse
