Science North is a destination location for visitors from near and far. Located on beautiful Ramsey Lake and close to Laurentian University, Science North offers activities and exhibits for young and old alike.

This is a place for hands-on exploration and discovery. From live experiments to the only IMAX Theatre in Northern Ontario, and from live animals to the nature exchange, Science North is a day-long, fun-filled adventure.

Don’t miss our premier exhibit, ‘Beyond Human Limits’ as it takes you inside the minds and bodies of extreme athletes to explore the psychology, physiology, and physicality of some of the most extreme activities in the world. In this high-energy exhibition you’ll experience the thrill of extreme sports in exciting, interactive exhibits and immersive environments. See first-hand the creativity and innovation inherent in these sports. Meet passionate athletes and hear their incredible stories.

Try your luck with our new Escape Rooms — a great challenge for the whole family to enjoy. Take in a show at the planetarium and visit kid-friendly displays throughout the centre where build and enjoy activities abound. The nature exchange provides budding scientists with the opportunity to trade nature finds from home for nature treasures from Science North.

Science North is close to wherever you stay and easy to get to regardless of where you are coming from. Once on site our ‘Bluecoats’ are always more than happy to assist you in any way they can.
