Brilliantly designed by architect Douglas Cardinal when he worked in Alberta. Wonderful, educational movies against a huge screen good for the whole family. Space education theatre for easy and comfortable viewing (planetarium). Wonderful gift shop and scientific designs and projects for children. Plenty of parking. Downside: Quite expensive for admittance.

When we visited, the Body Worlds Exhibit was still on. It was an eye opener. I get to see the tissues , muscles, bones of the different organs at close range. Nice way to introduce one to your body. After that, I had a nice time browsing through the gift shop. It was a nice, unique experience.

I enjoyed the set pieces and wardrobe the actors wore throughout the series of films. My favourite section of the event was the monsters of the forest. They were very well done props and they had the lighting and atmosphere just right to make you feel a bit creeped out by them lol. I have to admit, however, that I... More

If you love science this is the place for you!! Lots to do for kids and adults, great exhibits and super friendly staff. Toured this place when many other schools seemed to be here at the same time, which made some of the exhibits super busy. Definitely worth the entrance fee! Would visit this place again, and again, and again!

The Harry Potter exhibit was very good and we saw lots of memorabilia. We weren't sure if we'd go as we also went to Universal Orlando and saw the Harry Potter World there. Glad we DID see this exhibit as it had way more memorabilia.

On May long weekend I took my 4 children to the Telus World of Science. We have been a couple times in 10 years. My kids had fun, but from a parents point of view its time for an overhaul on all the exhibits. I found floors and walls very dirty, and worn out. They've had the same exhibits for... More
