  • Been my favorite place since I was 5! The people are always so nice there and all of the animals and exhibits you can look at and play with is amazing. Since I was 8 I would always love going down the stone tunnel with the two pictures, always my favourite part. I just wish they never removed the "wishing well" with all the coins, but I overall love science north!!
  • Our family loves going to Science North! The exhibits are engaging and the staff and volunteers are very friendly. We have a 10 year old and 6 year old and they both love the exhibits and workshops. We live a couple of hours away, but we still purchased the Family Membership because of the value. A fun educational way to spend the day with the family!
