Owner description: The Okanagan Science Centre makes science fun for everyone. Come enjoy hands-on science exhibits and activities with the whole family. From March to August, we are displaying Dinosaurs Unearthed - an exciting exhibition of Animatronic Dinosaurs and Dinosaur Fossils. We are home to the only fixed roof planetarium in the BC Interior. All year round we offer Planetarium Shows, Gyro Chair rides, and other science activities--check our website for monthly schedule. We offer a unique collection of hands-on science exhibits, including a Discovery Room for younger children, an Amazon Biotope, a Climbing Wall, a Robotic Clock we built here at the Science Centre, Bert our bearded dragon, and Bitey McBiteface our piranha. We host school field trips, put on a range of Science Camps during breaks from school, and offer themed birthday parties.

“Family fun”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

While much smaller than big city science centers, this hands on family attraction has something for everyone and the displays change often enough that you can go there a few times a year & there is always something different. the local kids all know & love the in house scientist , who makes learning science fun ! My son has been here many times over the years, for school field trips, birthday parties and just to see the exhibits. Affordable fun.
