When there recently while on a visit to Toronto. The location and site itself is amazing!! Build down the side of a ravine, it really is beautiful. However, the content of the science centre is awful. This is supposed to inspire children to go into science? I say skip this and spend the money somewhere else!

The Science Center was just ok. The exhibit they had going on was Game 2.0, which showcased gaming systems from when they first came out until present. We spent most of our time in there, and my husband had a blast. The rest of the center was kind of boring. It was so spread out that it seemed like they didn't have enough stuff to fill the room. I wouldn't have thought it was worth the $22 if they didn't have the game exhibit.

My 9 and 11 year old enjoyed the museum. There favorite part was the video game exhibit. They also liked shooting paper up through the tube. We all really enjoyed the dome IMAX movie. We saw Under the Sea, which was a great experience. We were disappointed that the museum closed so early and the paper making demo was held only 1 time and happened to be at the same time our IMAX movie. The scheduling should be better.

It is really hard to understand where the science is in this Centre. After 1 hour, we could not stand any more that horde of noisy children and teachers. Torontonians should travel to London to see a real Science museum.
