Updated on July 13, 2017

With three post secondary learning institutions Sudbury is commonly referred to as the educational center of the North.

Dynamic Earth Sudbury Ontario

Dynamic Earth is a separate facility tied into Science North. This facility which goes through the history of mining is highlighted by the underground mine tour. It should be noted that Dynamic Earth is not open year round as it is closed in the winter due to water levels and temperature in the underground mine. A bonus for visiting Dynamic Earth is that Sudbury's landmark the Big Nickel is located in the parking lot. Along with the underground tour the facility hosts a ton of hands on exhibits plus a number of films that are extremely well done.

One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Northern Ontario is located about forty kms outside of the city of Sudbury and it will truly take your breath away.
