Image of Artifact Alley

Artifact Alley is the dazzling centre hall of the Canada Science and Technology Museum. Encompassing eight distinctly-themed cases and the Demo Stage, Artifact Alley is the museum’s backbone. More than 700 artifacts are on display – arranged as stand-alone pieces or in artful groups. From vehicles to cameras to telescopes to trade literature, the breadth and beauty of the museum’s collection is front and centre here.

Visitors will experience an immersive winter scene, take the wheel of a ship, and see how science and technology figure into our daily lives. Get hands-on with real woodworking tools, discover old technologies that can now be found as apps on a smartphone, take command of a sci-fi spacecraft, and more!
