It is a place to visit with the family, good for kids, to focus in imagination, discoveries and to create curiosity about the future. It is far from Toronto's downtown. I recommend.

I love to visit science centres as I work in one myself and really enjoy seeing different approaches to make STEM accessible. The centre has some great features (planetarium presenters were confident and knowledgable) but looked like it needed some TLC as it was looking...More

We happen to go on "free" day and it was elbow to elbow. It was great to see so many parents/children in all the activities, but this was definitely focused on younger children.

There is a lot to do here and our kids had a great time. It is a little confusing at first to navigate all the floors. Some of the exhibits weren't anything special but the kids loved the kidspark area. The IMAX was cool too.

I brought the family here recently to see what has changed since I last went nearly 30 years ago. The answer: not much. Don't waste your money. Exhibits old and run down, no sight of any employee giving scientific information or guidance, horrible dining experiences...More

Hi, I believe it's $10.00 per day... there is no free parking around the area. It's totally worth it as you will be spending most of your day there. Lots of great things to see and do. I hope this was helpful...enjoy!

It depends on what kind of a person you are. If you read all the descriptions and try the stuff, I suggest between 3 to 4 hours, but if you are just one of those look and pass guys, then 1 to 2 will suffice.
