Museum
“Science North, Sudbury's Science Centre, is a beautiful science centre located right on the shores of Ramsey Lake. Here you will find something for everyone. The science centre has multiple levels of fun, hands-on, educational exhibits, workshops and presentations all day. Hands on science experiments, films, toys, science theatre, you name it. Between the toddler treehouse, bug floor & butterfly exhibit, animal friends, and many many other science based interactive exhibits Science North is fun for everyone. Keep in mind, the science centre does have an elevator between floors if needed, but does require a lot of walking. Plan to dedicate a full day to exploring Science North, in fact you could even spend two days here and still have more things to do. There is a cafeteria, but you are also welcome to bring your own food and eat at designated tables or outside overlooking the beautiful Ramsey Lake. If you plan on visiting Dynamic Earth & Science North, make sure you get the Dynamic Duo Passport instead of regular day passes (this will save you some money if you visit both). No kids? Thurs-Sat, 5-10 check out The Patio at Science North and try an impressive array of treats and locally sourced beverages (19+ beverages). ”
