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.

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 COVID-19, 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.

We will continue to follow guidance from public health officials regarding when we are able to reopen and welcome visitors back to the Centre.

We appreciate the understanding and patience of our community.
