This centre did not let us down! We have gone several times through the years and everytime we go our kids loved it - from the time they were in the range of 10 years to older teens the last time. We always have fun and take infomation away.

This place had great exhibits, friendly staff, and even a nice food court. The newer exhibits about Canadian research are really cool but they are kind of hidden away upstairs.

This is a very cool museum for young kids- it's not too big that you don't get to see everything and it's very informative. I was impressed with this young lady that my son asked a question of - she didn't know the answer off the top of her head but she say she would find out and she did!... More

We went with a 3 year old and a 7 year old. Our older daughter liked engaging with the various hands on exhibits while the younger one quickly became bored despite having the vast majority of the centre left to explore. The cost was rather high and there was a charge for the extra exhibit that quickly put the cost... More

Every time I've been there is always something new and exciting to learn about. Even the regular exhibits are still always fun. The staff is very helpful and the interactive exhibits make it a fun day trip with the family. I attended a wedding at the planetarium under all the stars! Definitely check out the IMAX movies and if there... More

There is something for everyone. All kinds of entertainment geared to learn something about this world of ours. It is a place you can visit more than one time. Time of travel was several times mostly yearly.
