It's very interesting. Especially for girls and boys. The are good examples about the events in the nature and in the life. Could be better because it has some empty places. It needs to improve and to do a little changes inside the place for...More
LOVE LOVE LOVE this museum and stop by every time we are in Toronto with kids from little boys to teens. Everybody loves the Science Center. There are so many cool things to do and so many cool exhibits. Multiple floors and lots to explore...More
We spent 3 hours on premise and only covered 3 floors out of 6. The reason I downgraded the site is due to the number of displays that were not functioning correctly. There were about 30% of the displays not functioning correctly. Our son really...More
You need more than one full day if you want to kids to really explore, learn and have fun. They can play lot of games, see learning shows and things to do with their hands. Relatively it is not very expensive and has good parking....More
Positive: well organized, kinda clean, good parking spots, lots of kids screaming (lol) and great exhibits for all kids ages. Many topics and things to discover.
Negative: not much. Just not super convenient for food but I get it, this ain't a gastronomy destination!
We spent almost an entire Saturday exploring the museum. My 9 year old LOVED it - there were so many hands-on things to do. Be sure to check out the schedule when you arrive - we really enjoyed the Energy show, "hair raising experience" (where...More
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York
allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.

I checked their website and their Accessibility Commitment says "The Ontario Science Centre is committed to welcoming people with disabilities who are accompanied by a service animal on our premises. We will also ensure that all staff, volunteers and others dealing with the public are properly trained on how to interact with people with disabilities and their service animals".
This bodes well - and is a lot more user-friendly than a lot of our such centres back here in the UK. Happy visit!

Hi, I believe it's $10.00 per day... there is no free parking around the area. It's totally worth it as you will be spending most of your day there. Lots of great things to see and do. I hope this was helpful...enjoy!
