What to Expect

The Ontario Science Centre looks a little different right now, but it’s the same great experience. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Due to maintenance work happening in and around the Science Centre, we are currently using two entrances: The rear entrance for exhibit halls and live demonstrations, and the front entrance for OMNIMAX® Theatre.

  • Hours: We are open Wednesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

  • Tickets: Members do not need to book ahead. Visitors can buy general admission and IMAX® film tickets in advance online. If you book online ahead of your visit, you’ll save time when you arrive. Visitors with discounts, or CityPASS holders, can get their tickets on site.

  • Parking: Our main parking lot off Don Mills Road, near the front entrance, is open. There is no parking, pick-ups or drop-offs at the rear entrance, so once you park in the main lot, you can take our shuttle service from the front entrance to the rear entrance to access the exhibits and live demos. Going to see an IMAX® film right away? You can use our front entrance. 

  • Shuttles: Please use our free and accessible shuttle service to travel between the front entrance and the rear entrance. 

  • Lockers: There are a limited number of lockers available on Level 6. Lockers cost $1 for one-time use. Don't forget to bring a loonie!

  • We’re here to help!: There are lots of signs and extra Science Centre team members on site to point you in the right direction. We are always happy to help—just ask! 

  • Health and Safety: We follow the Government of Ontario’s public health measures and advice. As of March 21, 2022, masks are no longer required to be worn by visitors in the Centre although they are strongly encouraged. Please respect each other’s masking choices.
