The Centre has several hundred interactive and passive exhibits throughout the buildings. They feature everything in science and nature. They feature geology, the science of nature (in the west wing), astronomical science, how to play music and technology in the south wing, human anatomy, communication and bias, and some miscellaneous artifacts of science. The astronomical wing, which was closed for renovation since Pluto's demotion in August 2006, has now been refurbished and reopened to the public, featuring Toronto's only operating planetarium, as well as one of the few Moon rocks on public display in the Canada.
The OSC has a main area just in from the entranceway that is often used to demonstrate travelling shows, which sometimes spill out into the adjacent outdoor areas. Special shows in recent years have included:
- a computer art exhibit
- the science of sport
- a history of technology in China
- Gunther von Hagens' Body Worlds 2: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies
- a Marvel Comics exhibition
- an exhibit about the Titanic
