We spent all day with our kids at the Ontario Science Centre. The Planetarium (you need to queue to secure a seat) and the Human Body were highlights. All very interactive including the ageing software!

Hi, I believe it's $10.00 per day... there is no free parking around the area. It's totally worth it as you will be spending most of your day there. Lots of great things to see and do. I hope this was helpful...enjoy!
