If travellers venture to Ontario this March and are looking for some wallet-friendly activities to try, they can make plans to visit the Canada Science and Technology Museum. For two separate dates in March, guests can enjoy a free guided stargazing experience when they head to the museum, which may be a great thing to do with the family while on holiday.
At the Helen Sawyer Hogg Observatory, guests will gather under the night sky to learn about the wonders of astronomy, the study of celestial bodies. If the weather is favourable and the night clear, participants will be treated to a casual discussion by professionals on things such as constellations, planets and more. All ages are welcome to join in on the event, which will be held on March 16th and 31st, or attend one of the other gatherings throughout the spring and summer.
Those who want to keep up to date on the science and technology museum's offerings throughout the year can check out its Facebook fan page, which often provides the latest information on events, lectures and exhibits.
