Great place for kids. Safe fun for toddlers to freely roam. The kid zone is explosive fun. So many interactive devices and displays. The live science demo is a great learning experience. Lots of reasonably priced parking on site
An awesome place for young kids to learn and explore the progression of science and technology over time. The museum is divided in different sections each containing exhibits from a specific sector in technology from locomotives, sound, wearable technology, space, science, minerals, and many others. There’s also a special dedicated section for young kids to explore and experiment their creativity. There’s a climbing wall, gear wall and a vehicle building area where kids can create vehicles of different shape, size and weight and explore how unique design changes impact rolling of vehicle down the test ramp. There are a lot of interactive educational experiences for kids and it's definitely a place worth visiting and highly recommended for families.
Canada Science and Technology Museum is a modern museum located in an industrial park on the outskirts of Ottawa. Visiting on weekday, it’s also a popular excursion for school field trips and the displays reflected that.
First thing encountered is the Artifact Alley from various facets of Canadian life in the past. The Children’s Innovation Zone included a fun block vehicle station & test ramp. We spent a while in the Medical Sensations including dancing as skeletons on the monitor. Crazy Kitchen was a bit of a mind-tingling experience.
Hidden Worlds and From Earth to Us exhibits highlighted the science, natural resources, and technologies surrounding our lives. Sound by Design included interactive displays that generated DJ music. Gigantic locomotive cabs were accessible to walk through in the Steam engine room in contrast to the bikes exhibit.
We spent about 2.5 hours within the museum. There’s not quite as many exhibits as the Ontario Science Centre but it’s still an enjoyable & interactive family experience. Note there’s paid parking in addition to tickets.
This is a very kids friendly place. They will enjoy each and every section of the museum. Moreover for them their is an entire section.
For the adults, if you are interested in science and it’s history and want to see some prototypes or models of actual scientific inventions this is the right place to visit. Most interesting section is the soundless cube. You enter a place where no sounds comes in from outside and that’s an amazing experience.
Will love to visit again.
Had a complete run of the museum as it was extremely empty. Was very pleased that it has reopened since Covid and most exhibitions were open except for one children’s interactive room. The smell of that training room brings back memories of days gone by,, not only in a historical Canadian context but especially on a personal one. And all those childhood memories school field trips here! Love this museum. An Ottawa landmark!
