Spent a few hours here with my daughter and grandchildren. It had lots of interactive things for them to try and learn about. My 5 year old granddaughter thought it was a magical place. Even though we tried to tell her it was science she said "no it is just magic". The basement had some very interesting articles to read... More

The concepts are good but many exhibits are dirty and not functioning as planned. Play yard also is problematic. Not good value.

I have accompanied many a school class visit to this fun place of learning. The child in us and the children with us are always seeking answers to why things work the way they do. This is just the place to satisfy that curiosity. Tree floors of learning and a bit of History in the basement as it still has... More

Spent a delightful few hours here and learned some things I never considered! The fun about this place is the total hands-on approach to learning. Puzzles, experiments, challenges and some good ol' fashioned head scratching are the order of the day here. Well worth the modest admission - bring the kids/grand kids.

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
