Canada Science and Technology Museum
The largest of its kind in Canada, this museum allows you to push buttons, turn dials and pull levers to experience science and technology first-hand. Discover artifact-rich exhibits, which detail subjects from marine and land transportation to space travel and communication technologies. The Technology Park, open only in summer, features everything from a locomotive to a rocket. Guided tours and demonstrations are given daily.

The demos seem a little old (have seen them in other centres) but the overall experience was good.

This centre is situated in a windowless one-floor warehouse. The exhibits are dull and the kid's zone is very small. We finished our tour in a matter of 90 minutes.
