Canada Science & 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.
I was at the Museum this summer for its Festival of Technology and realised what a great collection it had. I can see why it needs a new space (and hope this happens soon!) I know it is collection based but was impressed to see how much interactivity it has. I can see why it might be called a science centre, as it seems a hybrid.
The demos seem a little old (have seen them in other centres) but the overall experience was good.
I read from everywhere it was the largest science centre in all of Canada. Being from Toronto, I was very eager to visit a place that can top our own Ontario Science Centre. Boy, was I wrong! 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.
