In accordance with Ontario’s vaccine certificate policy, all visitors aged 12 and older must show proof of being fully vaccinated (paper or digital copy) along with valid ID to visit the Ontario Science Centre. Everyone including Members are required to book a timed ticket in advance. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please note: KidSpark is now open. Capacity in this area is very limited and entry is on first-come, first-served basis. Visitors should be prepared for possible long waits to enter KidSpark.
Some experiences remain closed including the Energy Show on Level 1 and the Planetarium on Level 4. KidSpark and the Space Hall have very limited capacity at this time. Check out the maps below to see what’s open. We’re installing a new exhibition, Bug Lab, in the Great Hall on Level 2 which opens in late October.
It might sound backwards, but at the Science Centre, level numbers increase as you descend. Level 1 is one floor up from Level 2 (the entrance level). Access Level 1 from the lobby or through the Procter & Gamble Great Hall using the stairs, escalator or elevator.
Level 2 is where you’ll start your visit. Here you can purchase tickets, store your stuff in a locker and walk across Celebration Way to exhibitions in the Procter & Gamble Great Hall. From here, use escalators or elevators to access lower levels.
Level 3 is a seasonal outdoor terrace with a view of the Don River Valley below. Grab a snack, admire the TD Pollinator Garden and walk the trail. Access Level 3 by stairs from either the Procter & Gamble Great Hall (walk down) or the landing on Level 4 (walk up), or take the elevator directly to Level 3.
Some experiences remain closed including the Planetarium on Level 4 as well as the KidSpark Café. No food or drink is permitted on Level 4.
KidSpark and the Space Hall have very limited capacity at this time.
Access Level 5 by going down to Level 6 first. Take the stairs or elevator up one floor. Level 5 has its own elevators.
Level 6 is a big level with lots to see and do. Explore nature and the environment, the human body and sports, and youth innovation and special exhibitions. Don’t forget to take a trip through the TELUS Rain Forest or the cave. Level 6 is the lowest level of the Science Centre.
