Perhaps not as razzle-dazzle as science museums in some other cities—it’s located in a former bakery on the edge of an industrial park—this museum makes up in heart and curatorial depth what it lacks in glitz. Generations of kids speak fondly of the space simulator and the collection of vintage locomotives. Knowledgeable staffers eagerly share the inside scoop on everything from antique cars and canoes to microchips and electronic instruments. The corporation that runs this museum also runs the intriguing Canada Aviation and Space Museum in a beautiful, hangar-like Rockcliffe Park building, and the small Canada Agricultural Museum at the Central Experimental Farm, both also worth a visit if you have a keen interest in either subject.
