Canada Science and Technology Museum – Ottawa, Ontario

Located in Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Science and Technology Museum houses a plethora of scientific objects and innovations in a newly renovated building.

The museum first opened in 1967 as part of the fanfare surrounding the Canadian Centennial. Since that time, droves of visitors have stepped through the museum’s doors in anticipation of discovery and wonder. Featuring substantial permanent collections and temporary installations, the Museum delivers insight into the role Canada and its citizens play in scientific advancement. Beloved exhibits include the Crazy Kitchen, yesteryear transportation retrospectives, and vintage electronic and communication devices that harken back to a time before the internet took over.

In 2017, the Museum re-opened its doors after a three-year, $80 million renovation – a worthwhile investment to protect and display important pieces of Canadian scientific history.

The Museum plays hosts to school field trips and offers educational workshops and conferences. The immersive, hands-on exhibits make for an engaging and unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages.
