This March Break, you will have the opportunity to meet over ten gigantic metal dinosaurs at the Dinosaurs in Motion exhibit. This exhibit showcases the power of combining art, science and innovation. Visitors will have dino-sized fun controlling the movements of these prehistoric creatures with pulleys and levers. Imagine the joy on your child’s face when they see a dinosaur come to life before their eyes.

Get hands-on and minds-on with additional science programs and activities. Fly in a flight simulator, tinker with code, or make a human sized bubble. Imagination and creativity are at the forefront of every exhibit at the Discovery Centre.

When you are ready to have a seat, take a 360° tour of the galaxy with a live star show, or watch one of their featured films that appeal to children of various ages. The Dome Theatre lets you soar the solar system, learn about the Amazon rainforest, and explore the mysteries and science of black holes. Showtimes are shared up to a week in advance and can be found here.

A day spent at the Discovery Centre is a spectacular day out for all ages. From toddlers to adults… the young to the young-at-heart… there’s so much fun to be had and memories to be made, you won’t want to miss a thing.
