Science Information

Welcome to the Science Information Centre. Our main role is to promote science and technology and to familiarize our visitors with science and technology.

Opened in 1990, the Centre originally answered questions from the daily visitors about science and technology, educational materials and artifacts. Today, it also answers written, telephone and email requests. It provides reference services to students and teachers from all over Canada.

Visit the Science Information Centre; it is located next to the big Tilbury clock in the Museum. The Centre is open Wednesday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Centre has a good collection of materials to answer visitors' requests.
