BallsChances are you’ve been to the Ontario Science Centre. Many times. Us too. And I’m convinced that we’ll never see it all. With so many interactive hands-on activities and demonstrations for every age, we are always discovering something new or simply returning to that trusty ‘ol favourite spot. How long is it really possible to spend watching the balls in front of KidSpark? Well, long enough for mom to attempt an artsy shot.


Getting there: All you need to know about getting there.

Parking: Two parking lots. $5 members; $10 non-members. I’m told there is some free residential street parking east of the Science Centre if you’re willing to walk from there.

Getting in: Admission but if you plan to revisit go with membership. The Science Centre is part of the Toronto Public Library’s Museum + Arts Pass program.

Navigating: Up is down, down is up. Because it’s built on the Don Valley, the 6th floor is the bottom floor. I’m confused every time. Lots of elevators and escalators. Strollers for rent, lockers, cafe, tons of places to snack, baby change tables and family washrooms. RBC bank machine near entrance.

Baby and toddler areas: Located in KidSpark on the 4th floor. We love the little aquarium and soft cushion blocks in the gated baby area. Toddler space on the other side.
