Very interesting and educational. This science center focused on hands on activities for visitors. We did not go to the Imax theatre because of costly admission fee. We only paid for regular admission and spent hours in the center. I loved the architectural features, especially the rock tunnel with thousand years old bedrocks that lead visitors to the main building; the spiral ramp that winds its way to the 4 floors and a beautiful view of the Ramsey lake through the glass; and the 20 meter fin whale skeleton that hanged from the ceiling.
If you like science, there was so much to explore from the 4 exhibit floors. Although I was not a big fan for butterfly, I was impressed to watch the glass-enclosed Butterfly Gallery (more than 400 butterflies…) on the 2/F. I also enjoyed seeing the animals from the northern forests: the Porcupine, the Flying Squirrel; and those lovely creatures that live in water, lakes: the big fat beaver and the turtle.
The Whizards Gift shop at the main floor offers educational toys and souvenirs. The Food Court offered snacks and quick treats. Too bad that the restaurant was closed on the day we visited. To conclude, this was a nice place to visit for adults who love nature/science, students, and families with kids.

Great place to learn more about nature and its surroundings. Super friendly bilingual staff. Fun educational hands-on play/learn exhibits for the young and old. A definite attraction to visit when in Sudbury. Beautiful, well kept outdoor grounds also to go for leisurely walk on boardwalk cresting Lake Ramsay's yatch club leading to public beach area. Spectacular scenery. Great place to bring family with kids of any age. Stroller/wheelchair accessibility inside and out.

There is always something new. No big line-ups like other the Science centres in southern Ontario. Grandparents, parents and kids enjoy. A good place for birthday parties
