Travelling with my grandson, and we both enjoyed immensely. Lots of interactive things, but the 'space' was his favorite.

Haven't been here for years! Used to come a lot as a kid. Saw the Normandy D-day IMAX documentary which was very well done. The theatre has been revamped since I was a kid. Really comfortable chairs, great sound, and nice quality projector.

Pleased to see the new exhibits, kids had a great time. The facility is clean and the crowds weren't too bad for the summer months. Great family day trip.

This kid friendly, hands on attraction kept us all happily occupied for 5 hours. Be sure to check out the film schedule and plan your visit accordingly. We took a picnic lunch and enjoyed that in Coronation Park in which the Science Centre is located before going in. Free parking a plus too. Can't be in too much of a... More

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!
