|About these ratings|
The Ontario Science Centre has earned the reputation as a "museum of the 21st century," and for a good reason. This is the place where you can peer into a black hole, shake hands with a robot, compose music using a fountain and now, hop a train to Hogwarts. “To be honest, this is one of the best science museums I have ever visited,” writes one IgoUgo.com user. “It is great value for money … and is very hands on.” Attractions here cater to both kids and grown-ups, who will enjoy spending time in the tropical rainforest, which, by the way, is home to frogs, lizards and bugs (don't worry, they're kept safely behind glass). Before starting your tour, stop by the information area to see if there's anything special going on that day -- several theaters (including an IMAX) feature laser shows and educational films, and the museum often presents demonstrations on everything from electricity to metal-casting.
Located in North York, the Ontario Science Centre is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the museum ranges from C$20 to C$28 ($20 to $28 USD) depending on what you plan to see, but entry to the Ontario Science Centre is also included when you purchase a Toronto CityPass.
