There is so much to see at The Ontario Science Centre that I suggest you check out their webpage at:
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.
This is a great place to bring kids, though as an adult I still like it. Shows exhibits on science and technology and also has an IMAX theatre to watch some amazing movies. If you suffer from motion sickness you might want to take a pill for it before watching the movie, depending on what it is. This is a popular place for school outings, so be prepared for hundreds of rugrats running around and frenzied teachers trying to control them.
You can buy a regular admission ticket for $14 (adult) and IMAX tickets for $10 or both a combined ticket for $20. Children and youth tickets are cheaper.
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.

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.
The Science Centre has much to offer ranging from traditional exhibits, hands on exhibits and an OMNIMAX theathre. Exhibit range from human body, psychology, ecology, geophysics, astronomy, engineering, mathmatics, and more. It is a great place to let kids explore and learn at the same time. The best part is the Rainforest exhibit, so don't miss it!
This is the Ontario's Science Centre. There are a variety of stuff to view and do here . My favourite was the Rainforest . The room was actually really hot and humid like an actual rainforest. There are exhibits you can view. Such as fish, bettles, cocroaches, frogs and much more. The one I really disliked was the snake exhibit because there was an actual 4-5 ft snake . My favourite was the turtle one , they seem so peaceful when they swim. There is also hands on stuff as well . You can make a paper airplane and test it out on the gadget that is provided to see if it would fly or not. There is this one bike you can go on and as you paddle the wheels , a radio turns on . That was cool . There is a place in there where food and drinks are available for sale. Theres an imax there was well. IT OPEN YEAR ROUND, 7 DAYS A WEEK FROM 10AM TO 5PM. (closed December 25)

To be honest, this is one of the best science museums I have ever visited! It is great value for money (only about £7 per adult) and is very hands on. There are many floors and its a lively place. It is a bit "out of the way" to get to, but there are buses that run often and stop outside the science centre.
There are many activities to take part in and adults enjoy it too. Some sections are mainly aimed at teenagers rather than kids, but it is still enjoyable! Every part of the museum is interactive with it being split up into sections. For example: the living earth, music, humans...
We only intended to spend a couple of hours here and ended up staying all day. There is so much to do and discover. Favourites for our 6 year old were the kid model who sneezes on you, the cave and the sports part. Included in our ticket was an Omnimax movie. We saw one about a fighter pilot and it was great, made you feel a bit sick with the plane spinning around and all but really good. If I was of a mind to go to Toronto again I would definitely go back.
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."
