    Being a UK resident and having been to the London Science Museum on numerous occasions, I can confidently say this is an amazing science museum and easily rivals it’s bigger brothers!!

    The whole place is great, from the architecture, the tunnel in the rocks, the fault line and all the exhibits.

    If you’re in the Sudbury area, don’t hesitate, visit.

    Wow! If you love books, GO THERE! Huge range of authors old and new, displayed in easy-to-find shelves, and staff know their stock really well. We came away delighted with our finds.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the number and diversity of animals on display at Northern Exotics; it really is a mini-zoo. Reptile enthusiasts will be particularly impressed with the many species of lizards, snakes, turtles, and even crocodilians. They also have parrots, a fennec fox, lemurs, and many other interesting residents. I especially liked the squirrel monkeys jumping around their enclosure, very entertaining. The staff were also very friendly and knowledgeable. Glad to see that these former pets have a good home and are well cared for.

    We, a family of 4 from Ottawa, had dinner here on Saturday, August 1, 2020. Very personable service and good quality food. In fact, the onion rings were the best we have ever tasted! We were left wondering why the tables were not all full!

    We recently attended the viewing of Johnny Cash. This is agreat date night activity. We went for dinner and went to the theatre. They have a comfortable lounge to have a cocktail on arrival and during intermission. The staff are courteous and very helpful.

    Nice little side trip from Sudbury (half day). My kids were bored with the actual trains but enjoyed the set-ups of the box house and school car to see how people lived. And my kids enjoyed the playground and the Heritage centre around the corner (included in price to train museum).

    Came to this arena to watch the Sudbury Wolves as a fan of the opposing team. I received the usual chirping and heckling from the home team fans as would be expected in any arena, which was all in good fun. Nothing ever crossed the line I'd say. YMMV if you're a fan of a division rival though, as with all teams.

    I was just barely able to get parking across the arena an hour before puck drop. $5 to park there, not sure about how many other places are available so please plan ahead.

    I probably won't make the trip again due to it being several hours away from home one-way, but good arena nevertheless! Cannot go wrong with hockey in Canada, and the tickets are reasonably priced for Major Junior hockey.

    We need such a gallery in Sudbury. Works were well presented. Staff was appropriate. it would be good to see some more initiative for local artists to have the opportunity to expose.

    It was a great place and clean and staff was friendly we where a group of 6 kids from age 7 to 11 everything was good the only problem we had was with the helmets on the zip line they need to be cleaned ever time someone used it especially with the amount of kids and head lice is one of the biggest thing that can be transferred they really should be cleaned or have the hair covers like other places have for the helmets

    Great way to spend the day. Staff was friendly, helpful and informative. Would recommend going. Prices are reasonable with the option of leaving and coming back all day.
