Special Update

Temporary Closure

The Ontario Science Centre will be closing temporarily to visitors, effective 5 p.m. on Friday, March 13.

This decision comes as public health officials are taking unprecedented actions to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, including recommendations for social distancing and the cancellation of large gatherings.

There is no known exposure to COVID-19 at the Ontario Science Centre. With the highly interactive nature of exhibits and programs, the Science Centre has decided to close temporarily to protect the health and safety of staff and visitors and to help reduce the potential spread of COVID-19 in the community.

At this time, the Science Centre will remain closed through Sunday, April 5, aligning with the closure of all publicly funded elementary and secondary schools in the province.

We appreciate the understanding and patience of our community, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Ontario Science Centre soon.
