Exhibits obviously older but interesting. Planetarium Nasdaq due to disrepair and strong smell of mold due to water damage. Deserves a refurbishment, as the displays, especially of native culture and local wildlife ecosystem are really informative.

Wonderful time spent walking through diorama's and beautiful displays of the geological and chronological time line of life in the North Americas. Spent three hours enjoying all the displays and we were especially impressed with the full size replica of the "Nonsuch" the first western trade ship for the Hudson Bay's Company. Certainly a must see if you are visiting... More

Amazing 3D experience of the solar systems and new footage of recent and current NASA explorations. It captivated both young and old. The planetarium had an astronaut simulator where you lay on a wheeled device and attempt to move around only using your arms to propel you and tasks to attempt. Many other interesting interactive displays.

We probably wouldn't do that portion again12.00 CDN for parking, plus we got bundle tickets for the gallery, one planetarium show and... More

I was amazed then and every time I have returned since to visit over the years. Many historical and educational topics... More
