You can almost touch and play with every display. My kids all went crazy inside. Great friendly workers, they explained to the kids in details for every exhibit when asked. If movie is in your time schedule, prepare to spend more than 3 hours inside.

Science North is awesome! There is something for everyone! Exhibits are very hands on, which is great for children. Lab experiments are great, short, which is lovely for little children. Overall, a nice place to visit. Imax is fun too.
