Good experience and perfect for a cold snowy day. There are many different exhibits we just saw the dog/cat which is interactive and fun for all ages. There was also a nano tech which was fascinating.

Learn about the first peoples, early settlers, artifacts from the entire Canadian experience, past to present. Spend 2 hours, or spend more time for a closer look. This will give you the entire Canadian culture in one dose. Many rotating temporary exhibits, choices of what...More

Give yourself lots of time when you plan to visit. We arrived 3 hours before closing and didn't get to all the exhibits. It has lots of fun activities for children and we (seniors) enjoyed doing some of them too! This is a great option...More

Back for another visit, this museum does not disappoint with its kid- and adult-friendly interactive exhibits. All exhibits hold one's attention, but the nanotech exhibit was especially educational and engaging.

We went to the museum on a rainy day and so glad we did. The Library at Night interactive exhibit was fantastic and worth the entry fee on its own.

The whole museum is interesting, but the Library at Night exhibition was a must see. A virtual reality tour of 10 different libraries in different times and places in the world. I had not experienced VR before, and it was excellent - completely immersive. Recommended.

Yes. There is a coat check on the main floor, right near the ticket counter. You can't miss it.
