Thoroughly enjoyed visiting. My 17yr old son was easily occupied with all the hands-on exhibits. Good for all ages. Watch for the beaver being out for his daily walks! We were there 1/2 day (having spent the other 1/2 at Dynamic Earth).

Great place to spend the day with the kids, many interactive stations throughout the 4 floors. We had no little ones with us, but we all enjoyed the day exploring and asking questions. The "blue coats" are everywhere to answer your questions.

Not much on the 1st floor but the next 3 floors make up for it. The blue coat guides are very helpful and answer lots of questions. My 7 year grandson liked making his racing car and seeing inside the beaver lodge.More

Kids if all ages loose time here. There is so much to explore and see; with knowledgeable and friendly staff sprinkled throughout. So many hands on activities the day always slips away. Don't forget to use the Ontario fun pass this year.

Kids had a blast. Lots to explore. Their favorite was polishing the rocks. Would love to see more times added to schedules (animals, etc).
