Extreme Makeover: Science and Tech Museum reopens with new look and new approach

There are vintage microscopes and medical devices, the world’s first musical synthesizer (invented by Ottawa physicist Hugh Le Caine), an Iron Man-like diving suit and much more. Spread across 11 exhibition spaces, the subject areas range from Into the Great Outdoors to Wearable Tech. There is the wild array of 700 objects in the Artifact Alley central hallway and the hands-on fun of Zooom, a play space specifically designed for kids 8 and under.

Catching glimpses of Arctic living with Voices from Nunavut

Arctic enthusiasts can enjoy a new special exhibit featuring glimpses of life in Nunavut as the Museum’s northern programming continues in the permanent Canada Goose Arctic Gallery. Voices from Nunavut is a video project featuring photos and videos taken by northern youth from each of Nunavut’s 25 communities using iPads that had been provided to the youth to help capture daily experiences in Canada’s Arctic territory.
