About This Day
Looking for educational and fun things to do in Sudbury, Canada? Take the kids to Science North, one of Canada's largest science museums, and Dynamic Earth, conveniently located in northern Ontario. After a morning of discovery at the first stop, head to the second museum of this fun, learning-filled day, Dynamic Earth. This earth science museum focuses on the mining history of the region and also offers interactive fun. Both of these science centres offer incredible learning experiences for the whole family. We made a whole day out of getting our hands dirty and learning about how things work. These Sudbury attractions offer a great family bonding and memory building day.
Science North is an interactive science museum located in northern Ontario. It is Canada's second largest science centre, offering educational resources for children and adults across the province.

DIRECTIONS Science North is located on Ramsey Lake Road, just off Regional Road 80 (Paris Street). From the south end of the city, it is an easy 18-minute drive from the New Sudbury area.
TIP Science North is located on the shores of Ramsey Lake. There is a boardwalk that leads from Science North to Bell Park which has a beautiful beach and large children's playground. There is only a lifeguard at one beach and at limited times. Ice skating in the winter is also available, but its best to bring your own skates.
Dynamic Earth is owned and operated by Science North and is the eighth largest science centre in Canada. Dynamic Earth is an earth sciences museum that showcases the city's mining heritage. It focuses on geology and mining history exhibits, with an interactive and guided underground tour.
DIRECTIONS From Science North, head south on Regional Road 80, then turn right onto Walford Road. Take Southview Drive and Kelly Lake Road following the signs to Dynamic Earth, about 11 minutes or 5 km (8 miles).
TIP Some of the exhibits and interactive activities may be difficult for younger children. This location is also isolated; bring snacks and water to ensure you don't over spend at the Copper Café.
