  • One of the better science centres I've been to. This place is very interactive and excellent for kids. Little man was learning stuff and he didn't even know it, he was having so much fun. Good place to add to your visit to Halifax.
  • Lots of hands-on science projects and experiments for kids to play with. Special exhibitions are well-curated to actively engage children in the interaction. Educational but also lots of fun for both young learners and parents. Staff are friendly and professionally trained. They know their stuff and what they are doing.
