The planetarium movie about aurora borelis was boring, most of their exhibits were broken, the kids play area is... ok i guess. Unbelievable waste of $76 for a family. Got my money back for the indiana jones exhibit because it was so bad we left it in 5 minutes. Really not fun.

Edmonton does it again! Harry Potter, Star Wars and now Indiana Jones & The Adventure of Archaeology Exhibition. Indiana Jones and the thug were there at the start of the tour to take a picture with you when you entered the exhibition (I don't know if they will be there throughout the whole exhibition though, you need to check).

There is a lot here to look at and take part in. The Mr./Ms. Science people that do live presentations are entertaining and show a number of demonstrations that appeal to kids. Making ice cream instantly using liquid nitrogen and then dishing it out for everyone to have a taste is a good example. The laser light shows might be... More

Senior friendly. Kid friendly. Always a good show for any age. I loved the flight of the monarch butterfly. My dad loved the trains. I loved the trip to Jerusalem.

Worth the visit at any time of the year, but with the "feature hall", it makes for a great day to visit and see the complete facility as well as take in the " celestial stars" viewing, and also the ability to take in a big screen "Imax" film.

We went with our friend and our daughter. The kids were aged 1,2,3 :) All of them really enjoyed running on the centre, touching everything, opening doors, turning , magnets, electrical lamp, etc. But the best by far - toddler area, you can do so much there, you can basically spend your entire day there.
