Museum Information


With a transition to “endemic” handling of COVID-19, WE ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Our hours are Wednesday-Sunday, 1 pm-7pm. Masks are RECOMMENDED but not required.

New Exhibits

We are always adding new specimens to our permanent teaching collection. Recently additions include La Brea tar pit fossils and a narwhal skeleton (sustainably-sourced from the Inuit) being prepared for mounting in our gallery!

We’ve Moved

We are now located in the heart of downtown Toronto – only minutes from Yonge & Dundas Square! Our 12,000sqft gallery is quite an expansion from our old 2500sqft home! We are a second floor location, with a flight of stairs.
