The Ontario Science Centre’s newest exhibit, Canada 150: Discovery Way, was most recently installed in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday.

Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum will be taken over by Vikings on November 4, 2017. Vikings: The Exhibition is an ongoing installation that breaks down myths and stereotypes around the Viking Age. An informative and interactive exploration, it showcases Viking lifestyle and religion, with lots of amazing artifacts.
Starting February 13, 2018, Come From Away, a Mirvish production and box office hit (nominated for seven Tony Awards), is returning to Royal Alexandra Theatre.
