This is one of the places you'd love to visit if you are in Calgary. Its a nice collection of few science exhibits including anatomy and jurassic exhibits. Not a very huge exhibition centre though. Can be improved. Tickets are reasonable and you can get discount on adult evenings. And yes, there are few adult evenings announced (due to liqour)

We loved the human body exhibit and the science shows were fantastic and quite unique. For a science centre enthusiast, I think it's a little on the small side - and I would recommend Drummheiler over the Dinosaurs uncovered exhibit (although to be honest I'm not a dinosaur fan).

What a wonderful experience. Every star show was very good. The IMAX theater was excellent. So many interesting hands on things to do.

We spent an entire day here and loved every minute of it. The shows were an especially big highlight. The fire show and light show should not be missed. There was something for every age and the admission even includes the planetarium shows. We used the Edmonton Attraction pass for admission so it made it a pretty good deal too.

TWOS has great exhibits that are always changing and the big exhibits like Harry Potter, Star Wars and Indiana Jones offer a great glimpse into how the movies were made.

The kids will love this place. Lots of fun, interactive displays like the alien creator. Kids are encouraged to play while they learn. Many rooms themed to a variety of sciences from weather to the internal workings of our bodies will provide hours of fun. Plus, you have the option of IMAX movies and science classes. Traveling exhibits have offered... More

We enjoyed a busy day out here, went to the IMAX cinema, participated in some science experiments, saw the dinosaur exhibit and tried many of the hands on exhibits. This place is engineered for kids to have fun!

I took my 11 year old niece here yesterday, we spent 6 hours and never ran out of things to experiment with, from puzzles to hearing tests to fun mirrors she had a great time. The IMAX theatre, which is a nice extra option, was showing "Walking with Dinosaurs" in 3D and literally had us jumping out of our seats!... More

I've been here several times for multiple exhibits, and there is always something interesting going on. Children especially love this place. The dinosaur, fish and bug exhibits have been my favourites! Make sure you show up a bit earlier on weekends, it's busy and you may have to wait in line to get your tickets.
