We were there for hours. So much to explore and do. We didn't have time to go to the sports science building next door. Next time, we will have to plan the entire day here.

I'm a scientist so was looking forward to visit a place loaded with cool science exhibits. It was awful! Mostly displays here and there and some hands-on activities. But nothing special. The IMAX was the best part. Way over priced.
