Telus hold something of interest for everyone. Well priced. It is geared for families however, it is a place you can go in your own and not feel uncomfortable. Enjoyed the IMAX movie. I recommend that you visit while in Edmonton.

The exhibit of the dinosaurs is so life like. We went with adults and a three and four year old. I am not sure who enjoyed it more. The science centre was amazing to. You could spend the whole day, lots to see. We found it a little high priced but in the end worth the money. We ate in... More

Spent the day in the Dinosaur Exhibit and took in the I-max 3D movie "Walking with Dinosaurs". A great family share day! Fun and informative. Everyone from 9 to 63 loved it! Popcorn is also available! A must see for everyone.

A good day with the kids. It's a bit expensive but the cost included the main science centre plus the dinosaur exhibit and the planetarium. Sons enjoyed it and enough education to please the adults.

We are annual pass holders and have seen many changes over the years at this venue since the 90's, but it definitely needs an upgrade especially with the new and beautiful Telus Spark in Calgary and Telus World of Science in Vancouver to measure up to. There is talk of an upgrade, so hopefully it happens soon. Even though some... More

I does not matter what exhibit you see at the Telus World of Science, they are always great and something for everyone. I have never had a bad experience visiting the TWS.

Was great for something to do. We went when they had body world which was very interesting and different. Would definitely go back with our kids as the activities are geared towards them.

Great way to spend the day, always something new to try and very interactive. It can be a little pricey if you are doing everything and could use a better restaurant for snacks

Huge variety of stores, great sales, most friendly staff, very busy. Two food courts, lots of coffee shops, Starbucks, Tim Horton's. Other's as well. Benches everywhere so you could sit down during shopping. Wear good footwear, you'll walk your 10,000 steps times 5 at least!

Edmonton's Science Centre is a most amazing venue with many hands-on centres which children certainly will enjoy. As a former educator, I have taken students there & loved to see how engaged they become with science. As an adult, I have enjoyed the astronomy centre very much. It is competitive in price admission but well worth the fee. It is... More
