We take our kids to science museums around the world, this might actually be the best one yet. Tons and tons of amazing exhibits, interactive activities, great staff, and a really interesting building! The only downside is the food, and no refills on drinks (really? With cups that small?!)

this is a very big museum with different levels and needs a lot of time specially with kids. Many fun experiments for kids to enjoy

This place is really meant for small kids. We had a citypass so we felt obligated to see it. We ran through it & was interesting enough. If you go with kids go early - it gets packed.

We had wanted to go to the Ontario Science Center for quite a while. It is very easy to get to by ttc (saves paying $10 for parking). It was OK. Many of the exhibits were outdated (one of the planet ones said something about "not yet happening until 2012") and some of the interactive portions did not work. However, there were a lot of cool things to see and it was a good variety (space, human body, plants, etc). As others have said, it seemed to be more geared towards kids. It's still a fun outing and worth going to, but I have been more impressed with other science museums.

We took our grandson to visit the Ontario Science Centre, and I found it a very depressing place. Either the displays do not have sufficient instructions or they do not work at all. One escalator not working and it was the one going up. The gift shop was not opened, and they were selling souvenirs out of a tiny display case. I also found the displays a bit disorganized. For the above, they charged us $45 for 2 seniors and 1 child, plus $10 parking.
