Over priced, dated display's and over crowded. Kids(9 and 5)bored to tears. Left after 3 hours of sheer disappointment. No comparsion to Sudbury's Science Musuem. Will not return and do not recommend for young families. Can see alot of the exhibits at the CNE.

I am reviewing the Ontario Science Centre because it was cool! It had the places like: The Human Body, Rainforest, Shoppers Drug Mart IMAX Theatre and the Restraurant. My favourite was the Science Arcade because it had the Ski Racing.

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!
