"Ontario Science Centre" Ontario Science Centre Tip by Martman
Ontario Science Centre, Toronto: 21 reviews and 25 photos
Museums come in many forms. Usually, we equate a museum as a place for looking but not touching. The Ontario Science Centre is the exact opposite. It is a museum of science, space, geology, technology etc. The very essence is that participation is encouraged, hence touching and manipulation is the theme. Many exhibit have buttons to press. People visit the museum due to this hands on approach. Throughout the museum, there are live demonstrations. Visitors are encouraged to look at the schedule when and where each of these demonstrations are.
In 1996, the centre also introduced the first Omnimax theatre by its entrance. This is a theatre with an extra huge screen traditionally the height of a small building.
The museum?s most famous exhibit is the Van de Graaff generator, which when touched, makes the recipient?s hair stand out vertically!
Address: 770 Don Mills Road
Directions: The location is Don Mills Road, the west side and just south of Eglinton. The centre is about 12Km from downtown Toronto.
