Our family of four really enjoyed our visit here. Lots of hands on things to do for all. My kids are 11 and 13 year old girls and they had a great time!

Saw the National Geographic production of "Jerusalem" at the Imax Theatre. Given what is going on in Israel and the Middle East, we felt it was imperative to see this film. We were not disappointed. The experience was made that much better by seeing it at the Imax.

We visited on a weekday with 2 boys aged 7 and 9. There were a lot of camp groups so initially it was a little wild. We were told that many of the camp groups would leave between 3 and 4. The museum closed at 5PM. The museum is part of the ATSC program, so if you are a member... More

We went here for my son's birthday (he turned 16) and on our last day of vacation. It was a good way to round out the trip and my kids enjoyed being able to play with things. Many of the exhibits were geared towards younger children but my kids and I enjoyed letting our inner children play.

I visited the Ontario Science Centre when I was a kid and, back then, my family spent three days here because it was so much fun. However, returning here recently with my kids and mom I was disappointed how less hands-on the museum has become. It was more like a building of science projects. Most things had buttons to push...

Went with my four year old daughter; expecting something quite amazing, but I - not she - was left very disappointed. The Science Centre was full of noisy, unruly school or summer camp groups who were let loose to run wild in the place. The number of ill-disciplined children in the place was hard to comprehend. My daughter who is... More

The Ontario Science Centre has been around for a long time. John Lennon and Yoko Ono visited it in 1969, a couple of months after it opened. been open. The current exhibit, the Science of Rock and Roll, is a must for anyone interested in the history and science behind the music. It shows an array of old recording equipment,... More

My husband wanted to go here and it was part of the City Pass. I ended up really enjoying it. There were a lot of unusual exhibits, which made the visit very interesting and educational. I would recommend this visit for all ages. There were some separate children's areas that would be nice for families.

I had fond memories of visiting the Ontario Science Centre as a child and couldn't wait till the kids were old enough to visit again. I hoped as we were visiting on a Tuesday that it wouldn't be too busy but seeing as how our summer weather has been very spring like I guess everyone else had the same idea.... More
