The Ontario Science Centre (OSC) is a science museum that has attracted over 40 million visitors since it’s opening in September 1969. The science centre has hundreds of innovative exhibits for you to enjoy such as Communication, Sport, Human Body and The Living Earth to name a few.  There are also several fun things to do at the Science Centre. Be sure to check out the hair-raising electrical ball, wall of bubbles and the simulated Rain Forest.


In addition to the in house exhibits the Ontario Science Centre also hosts visiting exhibits that will stay in the museum for limited periods of time.

In 1996, the province’s first OMNIMAX theatre opened at the Science Centre. The addition of the Shoppers Drug Mart OMNIMAX Theatre was a major component of a revitalization project that included the introduction of new permanent exhibits, restaurant and banquet facilities, as well as a new glass-walled public entrance.
