The Ontario Science Centre is home to interactive experiences with science and technology to educate and inspire visitors to create a better future for our planet.
Built into the slope of the Don Valley --and a great way to commute if you like to bike--the Science Centre contains a variety of inspiring space. The West Family Innovation Centre has 50 open ended experiences to discover new trends and innovations in science and technology. The Living Earth exhibit is one of the most exciting exhibits because you can experience a life-like rainforest and other natural wonders like a simulated tornado. The Science Arcade is a fan favorite with a complete hands-on science experience that includes the famous electricity demo. If you don’t want to walk around, you can watch an inspiring or educational film in Ontario’s only IMAX Dome theatre. There are also a number of new exhibits such as The Human Edge.
While teens can interact in a number of exhibits or workshops, kids under 8 have a whole section devoted to their learning in the KidSpark area. The Centre features a number of fun events for kids of all ages including day camps, sleepovers and Sci Fri, held on select Fridays for teens.
Located in the north end of Toronto, the best way to get to the Science Centre via TTC is to take 25 Don Mills Bus from Pape Station to Eglinton. You could also take the train north to Eglinton Station and take the 32 or 34 Eglinton Bus east to Don Mills.
