My husband, 9 year old son and I spent the afternoon at Science East and really loved it. It doesn't have the glitz and expensive technology of Montreal's Science Centre, but we found it to be just as interesting and, in some ways, more relaxing. There isn't the rush and flash like in Montreal, but there's a real opportunity to... More

Lots of hands on activities. The science experiments presentation was a hit. The kids could roam around and take part in activities over and over again!!

Both my kids loved this place, one is 7 and the other 2. The hands on science kept them entertained from start to finish. Their father and I had a blast too!

Science East is a fantastic science center. Their interactive exhibits are fantastic. We spent two hours there and would have spent more but had somewhere else to be. There is plenty to do for all ages (even the adults learn something and have fun!) To add to the fun of the place is the fact that it is housed in... More

Very cool and unique place to bring the kids. This does not have the glitz and flash of a big Science Centre like in Toronto, but it has tons of charm. It's a quaint place and this means that you never really have to wait in a line. Kids can wander from room to room and find free experiments and... More

Our visit to Science East was made on a rainy early summer Saturday, after brunch at Sweet Belgian Desire in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre and a quick trip to the Fredericton Farmer's Market. We were a group of four adults, one young adult and a 4 year old. We all enjoyed the interactive displays and everyone learned something, whether... More

I have been to science east numerous times and my kids have all enjoyed the many attractions however I found the last time we went it is in need of some touch ups and I was disappointed that the exhibits in the basement had been reduced

Perfect for a family outing when its raining or too hot out! Displays change on a regular basis so there is always something new to discover! The old jail is also a great way to spend a few minutes exploring history and for those interested in the creepier side of history, most of the tour guides can add a few... More

The harmonograph was a great hit with our family. There were plenty of other fun things to learn in this little science "lab" that is housed in a former jail.

You walk through and spend as much time as you want in every room and very educational for both kids and adults. We go at least once a year
