The Ontario Science Centre opened in 1969 as a pioneering interactive science museum -- a gift from the Province of Ontario to mark Canada’s Centennial.  Today, with over 2,000 interactive science centres around the world, the Centre continues to lead and inspire.

We are forging ahead with our Strategic Plan to ensure the Centre’s continued leading edge role in the 21stcentury and engaging visitors and the public at large to recognize and appreciate the limitless potential of science and human understanding to create a better future for our communities and the planet.
As the Ontario Science Centre continues to reinvent itself, our priorities and direction are very clear:  we create impactful science experiences, deliver excellence in science education and deepen our relationships with all the communities we serve. We encourage you to visit and support us.
