All reviews old jail hands on activities all ages great for kids kids and adults very cool place climbing wall lots of fun family pass quick trip gift shop interactive exhibits sunny day few hours small place whole family basement
I took my children to Science East in June 2018. At least 20% of the exhibits were broken or out of order. It was still nice to visit, but not worth the price for the amount of exhibits that were out of order.
Despite visiting the science museum without small children, there was definitely fun to be had.
Everything is very hands on, lots of learning through play. The coolest part is the room where your SHADOW "sticks" to the wall.
They have a 3D printer that is...More
We were on vacation and stopped into the Science building to kill some time with 5 kids (age 10-15). The museum is in an old Jail house which gives it an odd layout that actually works really well. The interactive exhibits ranged from simple to...More
We were very surprised to enjoy this place so much as some of the science equipment would need some repairs and upgrades but there is so much to do that we spent more than 2 hours to do everything. They even have science shows and...More

In July we will be coming to New Brunswick for a week or so (also Nova Scotia & PEI for a couple of weeks). We plan on visiting Hopewell Cape (Hopewell Rocks/Fundy National Park)-St Martins- (Fundy Trail-to drive not hike!/Sea Caves)- St. Andrews (Kingsbrae Garden)-Saint John (Irving Nature Park/City Market/Reversing Falls). I was wondering if we got a campground somewhere around SaintJohn/St. Martins if we would be within driving distance to the other areas or if we should plan on...More

You definitely shouldn't visit the entire Fundy coast from a single location. Pick a location around the Fundy Park/Hopewell Cape, then another one near St. Andrews. You can get a car ferry to Grand Manan (2 hours sailing time). This island is for you if you enjoy the outdoors and nice sceneries - lighthouses, walking trails, etc. Puffins don't live on Grand Manan or in the rest of the province. To see them you need to take a boat tour to Machias Island (ten miles from Grand Manan island)....More
