Overview

The all-new Canada Science and Technology Museum provides a highly digital experience for the whole family – igniting visitors with a passion for science and inspiring the next generation of Canadian innovators. After undergoing an $80.5-million renewal of its entire building, the museum features over 7,400 m2 (80,000 sq. ft.) of redesigned exhibition space, including an 850 m2 (9,200 sq. ft.) temporary exhibition hall to accommodate travelling exhibitions from around the world. Eleven new exhibitions – including the ZOOOM Children’s Innovation Zone, Artifact Alley and the Exploratek maker studio – as well as long-time visitor favourites, like locomotives and the Crazy Kitchen, delight visitors young and old.

The newly refurbished museum is a great improvement. Lighter and spacious with easy access to exhibits. Some good hands-on items and good demonstrations on the demo stage. Loved it.

The exhibits themselves are mostly excellent. Particularly, there is lots to engage children. But the attitudes and demeanor of the staff towards the end of the day are completely unprofessional. At 4:50 pm, a staff member named Alne or Aine was taking toys out of...More
