“Pushy and ignorant people”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

If you have younger children i think they would have a blast. I have older children 9 and 12. They were bored out of their minds. Thank god for the paper making and the science of rock and roll exhibits saved the day kinda.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

As a resident of Toronto, I have visited the science Centre on many occasions! The exhibits are often interactive and fun for both adults and children. Great combo of education and fun, a must do! Once my son is a few years older, we will definitely buy a membership!

Reviewed 24 August 2014

The kids loved it especially KidSpark and the science arcade. A good mix between fun/play and education.

“Plan to spend the whole day!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Tons of great things to do here for adults and kids. Many of the science displays are interactive making it even more fun. I've been here literally a dozen times and keep coming back to see what things have been added, etc. A must see in Toronto.

“A fun day for everyone”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

We took my father in law here for the day and had a great time. There were lots of school and youth groups, and the kids love it. We had a terrific lunch at the cafeteria, but you can bring your own lunch too. Go by car if possible, and consider the City Pass with the other Toronto attractions.
