    I use to love coming here as a kid and have returned with my own children over the years. The Mini Maker Faire, is the only reason why we have returned this weekend, though I had promised myself not to.

    They tweak exhibits every couple of years, but there is an overall feeling of shabbiness and no "tech"...Read More

    Great museum and activity center for old and young! A living railway just outside the main entrance offers free train rides on period cars.

    This museum used to be okay, but now it is more of "The museum of antique sciences and technologies of canada" It is fairly boring and there are only 2 or 3 things that a kid could find fun and most adults would find this as boring as heck!

    Great place to take young visitors while visiting Ottawa.... only wish you could be able to bike from the Aviation Museum to the Science and Technology Museum! It was a tough ride through the industrial parks and the roads are not bike friendly.

They tweak exhibits every couple of years, but there is an overall feeling of shabbiness and no "tech" investment in the building. The fact that it is so low tech is kind of an artistic statement, don't you think? The grand-mother who tagged along thought that the lighting was weak and the whole place noisy. We agreed.

I understand the concept of paying for parking, but some neglected to notice the pay-booth and will have found parking tickets on their cars. Tsk! Tsk!

Still if you have to bring out-of-towners here, do make a stop at the Koyman Gallery and the Lindt shop next door, to have something positive to say about the outing.

Update: Museum closed due to mold!
