Canada Science and Technology Museum
The Canada Science and Technology Museum building is closed for renovations, but you can still find us in other locations. The Museum will reopen in 2017. Read more
When the Canada Science and Technology Museum re-opens in November 2017, it will be dynamic, interactive, and immersive, and a highly digital experience for the whole family.
The Museum’s exhibition space will be upgraded to enhance visitor experience and inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, and innovators. The Museum will have five main galleries. To better showcase the Museum’s magnificent collection, pieces will be featured in Artifact Alley, which will also introduce visitors to augmented reality. Visitor favourite the Crazy Kitchen will be part of the renewed museum, as well as a demonstration stage, classrooms, maker space, and space for temporary exhibitions.
As an outdoor extension of the Canada Science and Technology Museum, the Atomic Play Park will be a free, all-season 10-acre public park active play combined with science education. The park will be designed to welcome all children, regardless of age or ability.
While the building is closed, the Museum has been busy delivering hands-on, minds-on science learning in the community and across Canada. Museum on the Go brings SciencExplore activities – including a messy workshop and inflatable planetariums – to schools for a half-day of science fun.
The Museum’s curriculum-linked science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) school programs are currently hosted at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. Our Adopt-a-Class program ensures that no child misses out on these experiences with the Museum because of their background or abilities.
The Museum reaches Canadians across the country with outreach initiatives. Travelling exhibitions bring artifacts, research, and interactives from the Museum to science centres, local museums, and community organizations. Educational gaming apps bring Museum content to life for national and international audiences. Edukits and downloadable lesson plans provide the support educators needs to make aerospace learning come alive in their classrooms.
