This is a great family outing where kids will discover lots of fun stuff. Definitely worth it for the IMAX. The actual areas of the centre do show signs of aging. Many exhibits could be updated by a couple of decades but the kids don't...More

I found it dated and disappointing. I was expecting more interaction with the exhibits . bit confusing finding you way around.

East York
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
