My mom and her husband came to visit me in Sudbury. It was summer time and raining so we ventured into Science North. We spent three hours hanging out, reading and having a blast. The blue coats are entertaining and so smart and it doesn't matter if you are a kid or an adult, they have the same enthusiasm. Spend the day rain or shine- Ramsey Lake just outside is beautiful too.

Beautiful location on the shore of Lake Ramsey. One can see and feel how it is underground especially in the cavern where different events take place. The kids can experience all kinds of scientific activities and share their findings with Science North.
And one can enjoy IMAX films there as well. A very entertaining place to visit . During the warm season, one can enjoy a lovely cruise on the Cortina all around Lake Ramsey and eat at the restaurant on the premises. A great place to visit!!!

Thank you so much for your feedback, we take pride in providing an environment that inspires science discoveries! We are very fortunate to have our science centre situated in such a picturesque location. Skating in the winter, Cortina cruise boat tours in the summer, can't beat that!

We've been coming with our kids to Science North for a few years now. The kids always seem to enjoy it when we go. There's lots for them to do, and learn. The only place that they could improve would be to introduce more things more often so the kids can learn new things, and experience new things when they come. It would be nice to see the place expanded (if possible).

Hi!

Great to hear that you and your family have been enjoying the science centre again and again! You are absolutely right in saying that things need to change. One of the ways we try to change things up is by hosting at least one special exhibition per year in our hall. In just a few weeks we will be premiering a 6000 sqft exhibition 'Arctic Voices' that will give visitors closer look at the connections between life on land and life in the sea. At the same time we will also be premiering Wonders of the Arctic 3D in our IMAX theatre. I am confident your family will enjoy exploring this new arctic exhibition with our Bluecoats.

We are a family of 5 and have purchased a membership for the last 3 years...all of our kids love going and they are currently 15,11 & 3...we visit the centre probably once a month sometimes more...we enjoy science north a million times more than the science centre in Toronto(we would actually never go back to the one in Toronto)...the blue coats at science north are very knowledgeable and I love the interaction they all have with visitors...amazing organization! I highly recommend it!
