There is so much to see at The Ontario Science Centre that I suggest you check out their webpage at:
More than 37 million visitors have been here since it opened in 1969. Every year over a million people explore all the hands on exhibits that are offered in this fabulous museum.
There are more than 800 exhibits in 13 exhibition halls. The museum has constant demonstration in all areas of science.
The Science Center can be summed up by quoting that it's mission is:
"To delight, inform and challenge visitors through engaging and thought provoking experiences in science and technology."
A fun, interactive museum of science and technology. Children will have a great time here exploring Space, Sport, Rain Forest and the Human Body (to name a few) with the hair-raising electrical ball, wobbly bridge, and bobsled simulation. The Center also has the OMNIMAX movie theatre, which is a screen that spans the entire dome ceiling. I watched Cirque du Soleil: Journey of Man here and it was incredible.
There is so much to do and see here. It sure is very interesting and worth a visit. There is for example:
The Omnimax theatre:
There is this giant 24 metre domed screen with over 13,000 watts of digital wrap-around sound. They have several movies you can see. We saw 'olympic Glory' which was brilliant.
There are also over 800 interactive exhibits to do with food, space, human body, sport, earth etc. etc. etc. You will be busy a whole day long.
They also have demonstrations like they take a photo from a kid and you see it change in how she/he will be in 50 years time.

Don't think you have to be a kid to enjoy the Ontario Science Centre. Since opening its doors in 1969, the centre has fascinated 30 million visitors, including more than 200,000 students per year, with the wonders of science and technology. If you talk to anyone who has visited the centre, they'll rave over the hair-raising electrical ball, lasers burning through wood and flowers shattering into icy shards.
Live science in the science center.
There are so many activities and exhibitions.
