We had intended to spend only an hour or two at the science centre at the end of a three day trip to Toronto, but the kids were having so much fun learning and playing that they didn't want to leave. Lots of fun for both kids and adults of all ages, including a restricted area where only kids 8... More

Learned lots about the human body. Still a very interesting place. Not enough shows at the Planetarium - only holds 50. Several exhibits were not functioning. Not really set up for tourists but seems to cater more to the Day Campers. For out of town visitors, they close much too early especially with the horrendous traffic in the city. They... More

We took our two year old and sever year old here and you could barely move with all the kids running around and screaming. I'm all for letting your kids have fun but some supervision would be good as well. As a result we didn't end up staying very long. We did the planetarium which was really cool so if... More

It was a Crazy busy day when we went. We never thought about day campers being there. It was loud and had to hold my 6 year olds hand tight. A lot of rude older kids. I was disappointed by that. They pushed us out of the way many times, we also had a hard time finding staff to ask... More

This is very cool museum with some incredible exhibits but we went on a day that the place was overloaded with summer daycampers. We couldn't find a single exhibit that wasn't packed with loud, unruly children. I hope to get back when we can truly enjoy everything it has to offer. One of the employees told us that later afternoons... More

So many hands on exhibits for the family to do. We enjoyed the Rock and Roll exhibit which was available for our trip. We spent much more time there than we had planned but it was worth it. Planetarium show was wonderful. The guides were very accommodating to our older family members.

Along with all the other amazing exhibits and fun things to do at the Science Centre was the Rock and Roll Exhibit, which we enjoyed greatly. Be sure to purchase for an extra $2 the Back Stage Pass that will allow you to scan and save your musical recordings when in the exhibit. It was amazing to come home and... More
