At the Canada Science and Technology Museum, with a truly hands-on approach to discovery, you will find yourself pushing buttons, turning dials, and pulling levers in the many interactive exhibitions. With collections focusing on astronomy, communications, computer technology, and much more, there is a vast array of artifacts of all shapes and sizes to explore.

Steam: A World in Motion Exhibition

Throughout our visit, we walked through steam trains, explored the “crazy kitchen”, played dress up and explored the world of medicine through the five senses.

We enjoyed being able to walk around freely, touching and playing with the equipment. The hallways are spacious enough to accommodate strollers and mobility devices, there are simple directions for the stations, a Wearable Tech dress up closest many hands-on activities at the Children’s Innovation Zone – ZOOOM.

We made these amazing little DIY Daleks. Afterward, we were able to control them via a remote control ball and a tablet. There were 6 balls available and the children had a great time moving them around the table.
