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

We spent all day with our kids at the Ontario Science Centre. The Planetarium (you need to queue to secure a seat) and the Human Body were highlights. All very interactive including the ageing software!
