Accessibility and Community Access



Our site is fully accessible and we offer programs to assist with admission costs.

 

Accessibility

We’re proud that the Ontario Science Centre is barrier-free. We offer extra-wide parking, free wheelchairs and strollers, wheelchair seating in the Shoppers Drug Mart® OMNIMAX® Theatre and Imperial Oil Auditorium, barrier-free elevators, a washroom for special needs persons and safe areas of refuge in case of emergency.

Our Access Guide for Visually Impaired Persons identifies our exhibits and programs that will most appeal to people who are blind or visually impaired. It lists exhibits that can be experienced through touch, taste, hearing and smell. It also gives wayfinding directions to locate these. There are two editions of the Access Guide

  • The PDF format edition is intended for sighted people who will be escorts. It features graphics and can be printed to take on your visit. Click here. You'll need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print the document.
  • A text only version. This HTML page is designed for "read-out-loud" screen-reading devices. Click here.

Community Pass Program

The Ontario Science Centre is committed to making science and technology accessible to all members of the community. We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Kids Up Front Toronto, a local charitable organization that helps other charities obtain free tickets for children to attractions, sporting events and other cultural activities. As of October 1, 2016, Community Pass Program rates will only be available to agency partners of Kids Up Front Toronto.
