We loved it. The kids loved it even more. We had to drag them away at the end of the day. The temporary T-rex exhibit was terrific, but the interactions upstairs were even better. We would highly recommend this attraction.

Our daughter loved the discovery centre.
She is almost three, so some of the exhibits were a little old for her but she could have spent all day at the RBC Someday Street.
The location was great, we walked along the harbour front after and had lunch.

Attended a business function there, all good. Space is modern, nice, and I enjoyed the amphitheatre show of the planets etc. Would definitely return.

The Discovery Center is a must-see attraction for anyone interested in science. The exhibits are geared towards childern but they are fun and informative for any age. I was expecially impressed with the quality and design of the interactive displays.

Took the nephews. They like it and like the rotating exhibits. may want to have a permanent dinosaur exhibit of some sort. Would also like a bit more stuff for older kids. 10 year olds get bored in an hour. But really nciely laid out and not expensive. good family outing.
