We visited on Family Day weekend with our kids (2 1/2 and 4 1/2) and had a brilliant day out. I would have rated it 5 stars but I come from the London (U.K.) and am used to museums being free so I found it...More
This place has gone down hill since I was a kid and that’s a long time ago. Brought my kids ages 3 , 10 and 13. My 3 year kept busy there with crafts but my 10 and 13 year old were board there. Many...More
It is expensive to visit and you have to factor in parking cost too, hence I took out one star. However, this place is always fun and there’s tons of things to see with “old favourite” exhibits along with new exhibits too. Check out the...More
This was part of our Toronto City Pass that we purchased. Took a few subways & busses to get here, but glad we visited (wish it was a little closer to downtown where the rest of the attractions were). It was a little hard to...More
First time visitor. The place is huge, but the exhibits were mostly for you to look at, rather than to play with / experience. Huge number of bill boards, and pictures. Kids would enjoy more if there are things that they can build or experiment....More
The place seems old and outdated. Many of the interactive displays did not work. The animals/fish etc, seem to be in an environment that was not maintained. Stay away if kids annoy you!! The layout ( and map) were confusing!

Was crazy busy,...More

The science center has its own parking lot with a $10 fee. The center is huge, with multiple levels of exhibits. There are discounts for children and seniors. It is child oriented with many hands on activities throughout the center. There are several Imax theater...More

I checked their website and their Accessibility Commitment says "The Ontario Science Centre is committed to welcoming people with disabilities who are accompanied by a service animal on our premises. We will also ensure that all staff, volunteers and others dealing with the public are properly trained on how to interact with people with disabilities and their service animals".
This bodes well - and is a lot more user-friendly than a lot of our such centres back here in the UK. Happy visit!
