Went with my 5 year old and five hours slipped away in a blink. The staff were great. They were friendly and quick to answer questions. The Imax movie was fun.

The children really enjoyed it and there was plenty for adults to experience here too. Not happy that the glasses for the imax theater were not sanitized before they were distributed after the last showing. The planetarium experience was awesome

Very impressed. I expected it to be like the Toronto Science Centre but actually thought this was much better. Full of kids on a rainy summer day, but I still enjoyed going through, there is a lot of true science underlying the fun actions and demonstrations the kids are doing. Lots of science subjects here, including many live animal and insect exhibits and tons of staff interacting and teaching visitors.

Shockingly expensive. Surprisingly poor quality. Amazing that this is amongst the city’s top attractions, says a lot about the rest.

Wonderful Science centre, full of activities, wild animals and great historical information. The building is very people friendly, greta gift shop and lots of activities.
The cave on the lower level is awesome !!

We thought it was more suited to children not adults. Some of the interactive displays not working. Animal displays just ok, butterfly enclosure small. We went to a climate change movie and we were addressed by a sheep.

We spent about an hour there and left. We didn’t think it was worth the $40 entrance. Food court closed. Disappointing.

Being a UK resident and having been to the London Science Museum on numerous occasions, I can confidently say this is an amazing science museum and easily rivals it’s bigger brothers!!

The whole place is great, from the architecture, the tunnel in the rocks, the fault line and all the exhibits.

If you’re in the Sudbury area, don’t hesitate, visit.

Seemed like a great mix of exhibits for all ages. I was worried there would not be enough for my kindergartners. There was so many interactive exhibits that they had fun with, some which were way over their heads but they still had fun messing around with
Watched one of the live presentations by Paul about energy. He did a great job explaining it to all ages.

Kids had a good time but I think if it had not been for the virtual reality area, they would have gotten bored. Found it tricky to time everything to see it all. Blue coats well very knowledgeable. Planetarium was amazing, wish it was longer! We did not eat there, we were told the food left a lot to be desired and therefore packed food. I couldn’t even buy a coffee there. Good selections were slim and expensive. Basically warm
Pizza or a day old sandwich. Pack a lunch.
