Canada Science and Technology Museum

The Canada Science and Technology Museum transforms these topics into a mind-bending experience. Through fascinating exhibits, the world of science animates before your eyes, and the intricacies of technology come to life in an exciting fashion. The Museum has a vast collection of cars and trains — including four giant steam locomotives, one of which pulled the Royal Train during the Royal Family’s visit in 1939 — and other special artifacts that tell the story of Canada’s connection to the world of science and technology. Create your own electricity on the human hamster wheel, peek inside the inner workings of modern telecommunications, and head up to the Helen Hogg Observatory to see the skies like you never have before!
