This ‘Birthday Party’ celebrates 40 years of igniting curiosity in science and technology. As one of the first interactive science museums in the world, the Ontario Science Centre has been an inspiration and model for science centres that have been created since its inception. The Ontario Science Centre opened on Sept. 26, 1969, within a few months of San Francisco’s Exploratorium, the first of a new breed of science museums that actively engage visitors with hands-on, interactive experiences. This became the template for hundreds of science centres to follow. Well over 40 million visitors have passed through our doors since then.
The Science Center is open from 10am to 5pm and the regular admission cost is $18.00 for adults and $11-13.50 for children so you can save a bundle by going on their anniversary date plus you get the bonus of free cake!
Please note that although admission to the Science Centre is free on this date parking fees do apply (8.00 per vehicle) You can avoid these fees by taking public transportation and you will be helping the environment out as well!!
