The Discovery Centre in downtown Halifax is a hands-on science centre dedicated to making science fun and accessible for children and young people. Interactive temporary and permanent exhibits, live science shows, special events and movies illuminate the world of science in everyday things, and allow experimentation and individual discovery.

The Centre is a self-guided tour, but our exhibit interpreters are available to help answer questions and make your visit enjoyable. We welcome group tours, and discounts are available to groups of 10 or more who book in advance. There is also a gift shop on location. More information can be found on our website at
