On September 26, 1969, a radio signal from over 1.5 billion light-years away struck a circuit that raised the curtain at the Ontario Science Centre’s official opening.
As a gift to the people of Ontario to mark Canada’s Centennial, the provincial government commissioned architect Raymond Moriyama in 1964 to design the Ontario Science Centre—one of the first interactive science museums in the world. The Science Centre has since welcomed more than 54 million visitors.
We’re one of Ontario’s most significant cultural attractions—more than a destination, the Science Centre is a space where visitors of all ages can learn-through-play and discover ways to think like a scientist every day.
We continue to lead the way internationally, guided by a mission to inspire passion for the human adventure of discovery. Our team of scientists and exhibition creators conceives, designs and builds world-class exhibitions and rents and sells them across the globe.
Guided by the belief that science, technology and innovation will help us shape a better future for society and our planet, we support our community, encourage dialogue and work to create a more curious, creative and resilient world.
