My niece has a season's pass so she took me! The exhibits are very interactive and well designed. I liked it better than the Ontario Science Centre - more interactive and imaginative. It's a long hike up to the IMAX Theatre.

On a passport book challenge, a friend and I stamped our book at Science World. So much fun!! We marveled at science, played science based games and tried to outwit each other. Great childish day out! We had smiles on our faces for the rest of the day.

From adults to kiddies this place is very educational and kids love it as stories and experiments are shown and kids are fascinated by it all. They do bring in different exhibits from time to time. Once they even brought in body works which we could not get enough of it was very well detailed with real stuff about our... More

Much of this "museum" is for children, and that said, many of the things for children are fun for grown-ups too! My favorite part, and the area where we spent by far the most time, was the dinosaur exhibits. You can actually touch dinosaur fossils, and the staff are experts that have a lot of knowledge to share, and do... More

I was traveling with my children it was impossible to do not stop at the Science World. It was so much fun and a lot of learning in a holiday trip. I recommend even if you don't have children with you.

If i could share one thing about science world it would be try one of the adults only nights! They are great! The selection of beer is horrible but the night itself is a lot of fun. No kids other than the giant children inside us all. Do it!

Hi Jonathan, Thanks for the review of Science World After Dark. We're glad you enjoyed it! Funny you mention the beer selection: since you last visited, we started selling Parallel 49 craft beer at our adult nights to improve the drink offerings. Hopefully you can join us for another adult night soon...would love to hear what you think—we're constantly trying... More

Science World is packed with amazing hands on experiences for every age level. Last visit, we took our 4 year old grandchild who had a blast. Great children's experiential area. Lots of exhibits too numerous to mention. A great day of fun and learning. Nice to have a good selection of fast food on location for a bite to eat... More

This was a truly fun time. We traveled there with just adults in our group and we had so much fun learning and playing along with the kids and families that were there. Truly a fun experience and I would highly recommend it and for more than 3 hours.

The place is swarming with young kids and is very obviously centered towards young enquiring minds and is not a place for science minded adults wishing to extend their knowledge. We asked our concierge and he said it was OK for adults, but its not. It cost us $60 CAD to get in and we were very disappointed indeed. Overall... More

Our family enjoyed all there is to offer at Science World. There are so many neat hands on activities for people of all ages. The IMAX was fun as well.
