OTTAWA – The new Canada Science and Technology Museum opened its doors to the public today, following a three-year renewal. Originally opened as a centennial project in 1967, the museum celebrates its 50thanniversary this week – as part of the Canada 150 celebrations.
One of three museums under Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation, the new museum features more than 7,400 m² of completely redesigned space. Combining everything visitors liked about the previous incarnation (locomotives and the Crazy Kitchen) with more artifacts and interactives that will surely become new favourites, the museum tells Canada’s innovation story in an immersive, educational, and fun way.
- Size of exhibition space = 7,400 m² (80,000 sq. ft.)
- Exhibitions = 11
- Artifacts = over 2,900
- Construction time = 26 months
