    Science World at Telus World of Science, Vancouver is a science centre run by a not-for-profit organization Science World. Passionate about science, a place to visit again & again. Activities for kids

    Science World is one of our family's favorite spots. So much to do for all ages. Be sure to take the demonstration shows at center stage at various times in the day. The "Toy Show" episode is great!

    The renovations will be SO worth it. They were badly needed and will set the museum up for many many more years of success. It saddens me to read comments of the naysayers: you're gonna be blown away!

    Science World also does some amazing after hours events! They hold their own events or you can rent it out! The green roof has an amazing view and atmosphere!

    I wouldn't come here without kids. It's a super fun and loud place where kids can get hands-on science experience. We go once a year.

    Totally worth it! Awesome for kids and funny for adults. Make sure you also go to the Omnimax theatre.

    Just minutes away, a visit to Science World bestows an interesting, fun-filled educational adventure. I personally really liked the BodyWorks exhibit!

    Strongly recommend to have at least three hours if you are first time to there. You will want to stay here for long. Also there is fast food available.

    During the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Russian security guards will wave families with kids through to bypass the huge lineup to see Russia House! Awesome!

    So easy to get caught up in the mind puzzles on the bottom floor. Make sure you see everything!

    Either it's a technical fault or a misguided effort to save money on bulb costs, but the IMAX movie was dim and murky. Movies look better on my home TV, I'd give it a miss.

    Watch the Rocky Mountain Express at the Omnimax Theatre then walk down to Mainland and Nelson street in Yaletown to see a real railway caboose!

    Dream place for kids. Sooo much stuff to play with, touch with, experiment with all day long. Really cool place.

    Definitely aimed at families with kids, rather than say, science museum in London. But still fun!

    The screaming kids and tantrums are a great way to resist the temptation to go forth and multiply.

    Was not advised that most galleries were closed for renos before being charged (reduced) admission. All thats left are kids exhibits - nothing else to see. Epic fail from admin & waste of time.
