Having been to Science North previously I thought it might be a fun way to kill some time on a rainy afternoon. My husband asked the girl at the front desk if she thought a couple of mid-20 somethings would get something out of the site, and she excitedly said yes, that it would be fun for all ages. We...

I have been to a lot of childrens museums and discovery centres both in the states and Canada. This one is just like them. I mean, really... my main complaint is that there is a sense of deja vu - same experiments, same hands on realities. That being said, this is an interesting and cool place to take kids. Especially...

Attended in June with my grandson's class. The children had a blast and so did I. Very interesting and the staff is very knowledgeable. I would definitely go again and would like to see the outside area and the cell area.

Definitely a place to visit in Fredericton. So much fun for the kids, inside and outside. Lots to interest kids and adults - and go at your own pace. My kids want to go back!

This is a really fun place to bring young children. There are exhibits indoors all winter, and fun things to do in the back yard as well during the summer. This is a great thing to do in both nice weather when you can go outside, and in rainy weather when you want an educational fun activity to do on... More

Great place to take your kids for a couple hours, play area in the back. You cannot leave the children and go to the market Saturday morning, you must stay with the children. This used to be the old jail for the City so there is a historic aspect for the adults, the play area in the back was the... More
