There's just not that much here to justify the admission fee ($26 CDN). Most of the exhibits are clearly targeted for young children - lots of video screens and interactive stuff, but there really wasn't much in the way of science. The special exhibit was...More

The imax and first exhibition was satisfactory, yet the centre is designed too much for young young kids. Teenagers and parents will easily lose interest as the museum is overly interactive and slightly unhygienic from all the children.

I have no clue why most of the reviewers rate this so well. First of all, if you have a stroller beware. The only way up to the top level is via elevator, which they inconveniently placed at the entrance to the science center (as...More
