Love the Ontario Science Centre! It actually still has a few exhibits/displays from when I was a kid (no sports zone anymore though!). We brought our 3.5 y/o and he loved it! This was the first time we could actually go into the Spark activity area (first time we had a kid under 8 with us). It's so cool in there!!! Kids will totally love playing in the little grocery area, water table, garden, and so much more. If you have kids it is a must visit! You can literally spend the entire day there and still feel like there wasn't enough time. We were there from 11-4:30 and felt rushed haha.
I feel the Science Center is underrated! It is such a fantastic place for kids of all ages, there is an unbelievable amount of stuff to check out & it is so interactive. My kids love visiting. The only down side is that we really never get to see as much as we want because my kids get to touch & test so many things it can take hours to get through just a few areas. The food court offerings are also good.
We visited the Ontario Science Centre and had a lovely visit. Exhibits are well thought, laid out and there is something for everyone. When we visited we had a service dog. The teller when we purchased our tickets answered my questions regarding a service animal but it was another dog-loving employee who noticed us and approached me to tell me how and where I could let the dog out during the day. Her extra moments to speak to me greatly improved our visit and ensured I was able to be present with my children (instead of running back to the main entry to let the dog out).
Great place for a day out, no matter what your age!We visited with the intention of spending about 3 hours here, however, we spent the entire day here. There's plenty to keep the kids, both young and not-so-young, interested and entertained.We visited midweek during winter and aside from a few school groups it was fairly quiet. If you visit during peak times then you may need more than just one day to see everything the Science Centre has to offer.
Fantastic! We were 3 generations and had an awesome time! The Science Center is well laid out with many different displays for everyone to enjoy - from little tykes to old people! (Like us!) I use a cane, mostly for balance, and had no problems getting around since the Science Center is very spacious. I was even able to walk across the suspension bridge! The only thing I might mention is there are very few places to sit without actually sitting at a display. And, yes, I know the Science Center is not designed for sitting around but it would help to have a few more sitting areas for a quick rest. We are looking forward to visiting the Science Center again when we come back to see our children.
