Science North is Northern Ontario's most popular tourist attraction and an educational resource for children and adults across the province. Science North's five attractions–a science centre, IMAX® theatre, butterfly gallery, motion simulator and special exhibits hall–recorded more than 477,000 admissions last year.
Science North IMAX Theatre
Science North's 200-seat IMAX Theatre features a 26 meter by 20 meter (72ft by 53 ft) screen, pictures of extraordinary clarity, 7,600 watts of powerful surround sound and unobstructed stadium-style seating. The combined effect creates the sensation of motion and active participation in giant-screen film adventures.
Virtual Voyages Adventure Ride
Science North's Virtual Voyages Adventure Ride combines motion simulator technology with high-resolution animation on a 7-metre-by-3-metre (24-foot-by-11-foot) screen. Three six-seat motion platforms move you in synchronization with fast-action adventures.
F. Jean MacLeod Butterfly Gallery
Science North's F. Jean MacLeod Butterfly Gallery is an exotic paradise in the heart of Northern Ontario, featuring hundreds of free-flying tropical butterflies and dozens of flowering, fragrant plants in a glass-enclosed environment attached to our Science Centre. Watch butterflies emerge from pupae and take a close look through powerful magnifiers. Science centre exhibits further explore the world of butterflies and moths.
Special Exhibits Hall
Science North's 667 sq. m. (6000-square-foot) special exhibits hall is the site of travelling science exhibitions and special holiday displays, year-round. There is always something new to see and do at Science North!
Wings Over the North: A 4D Bush Plane Adventure
Leap into the next level of multi-dimensional entertainment in the dramatic Inco Cavern, one of Canada's most unique specialty theatres. Wings Over the North: A 4D Bush Plane Adventure will have you "flying by the seat of your pants"! This show will lift you above the treetops and over the wilderness terrain of Northern Ontario in a vintage Beaver bush plane to share the adventures of long-time pilot Ron and his canine co-pilot Charlie. For the first time, you'll be able to experience all the
sights, sounds and feelings of real bush plane flight...all with two feet on the ground!
