Toronto is starting to reopen its doors, and we can’t wait to welcome you back. But it’s going to take us a little longer due to our interactive, high-touch exhibits. We’re working on a comprehensive plan to make sure it’s safe when we open our doors again–so thank you for your patience. As soon as we have more details, we’ll share.

One-Day Camps


Science Days

To assist families affected by school closures, special days of interactive discovery will be available at the Science Centre for your 5-12 year-old. They’ll make new friends, explore the exhibit halls and take part in hands-on science activities at our full-day program. These special program days will offer Extended Care at no extra charge.

March 5, 2020 

More dates may be added. Please continue to check this page for updated information.
