Discovery Centre

Nova Scotia's Hands-On Science Centre

About this Experience
The idea that curiosity connects us all is fully realized at the new Discovery Centre. It is a shared space where science and technology can delight, unite, and ignite. To date, the Centre has welcomed approximately 2 million visitors. As a not-for-profit, the continued success of the Discovery Centre relies on revenue from admissions, programming and services, as well as the members, volunteers, and generous individuals, corporations, foundations, and agencies who all value our passion to spark enthusiasm for STEAM and inspire a future full of innovation and prosperity.
The Discovery Centre opened its dream location in a LEED Platinum-certified building on the Halifax waterfront in February 2017. Four stories high with over 40,000 square feet of space, the Centre is the newest science museum in the country, boasting cutting-edge experiences, innovative galleries, and incredible exhibits from around the globe.
