We went to see the Dinosaurs but found that we truly loved all of centre. The food in the resturant was a little pricey but no more that one would expect. The gift shop has everything you could want and in every price range. We travelled from pre-history to the moon and the international space station all in one day!!!!... More

We went to one of their Adult only Dark Nights and it was awesome!! So nice to have the entire place open for adults to play without kids around. Great idea!!! They always have unique travelling exhibits too!

The first time we went, we spent 3 hours in the travelling Indiana Jones exhibit. I thought my 6 year old would be bored quickly, but he had lots of questions about archaeology and the movies. We had lunch (reasonably priced if generic fare), caught an IMAX show, and hit one permanent exhibit before it was time to go home.... More

Took my two grandsons, 4 and 8. They loved it, especially the IMAX. They also liked the live science show and of course, the moving/grunting dinosaurs.

Love going to the Telus world of science to see the different dismays that they have come in. There are so many fun games and displays to see.

This place is so cool to take children. Lots of sensory experiences and their exhibits are great. Make sure to catch a show in the IMAX theatre or Observatory.

Whether you are visiting or live in Edmonton this is a great place to take the family or to venture on your own. There are a number of exhibit rooms that only have one way out so you can let the kids explore on their own while you hang by the exit or you can jump in and have fun... More

We haven't been to the World of Science since my kid were little. We just went to see the dinosaur display with our Grandkids and had such a fun day discovering and learning. The dinosaur display was great and our grandson couldn't get enough of it. We also walked through the rest of the displays and had fun showing the... More
