After visiting some facilities in the USA, this facility is getting a little tired. Many of the exhibits are past their time. The exception would be the ocean aquarium were the kids can interact with ocean crabs, starfish etc. There are other interesting exhibits in that section too. The other sections were not as interesting and I felt like disinfecting... More

Excellent experience. The Indiana Jones exhibit was spectacular. Presented with an interactive tablet and a treasure hunt the attraction was truly at great time. The day was full of interesting facts and information. Had a wonderful time.

Have not been to the World of Science building in a few years. Indiana Jones display was awesome. Found all the staff extremely helpful and interested in what interested us. Took three teenagers and they had a great time. Also toured the Sumcrude Pavillion as well as the space Pavillion. Enjoyed the whole experience.

As a HUGE Indiana Jones fan, I decided to book tickets (part of a hotel deal) for the exhibit. It was a great 3 hours of information, treasure hunts, memorabilia (original costumes and props from all 4 movies), movie clips and very informative and interesting artifacts from actual time periods in history (eg. Mesopotamia, Nasca, Egyptian, etc.). The addition of... More

Came here for first time in March this past week. Wasn't anything "wow" factor we thought there would be. Every employee just seemed bored and not into it. Indiana jones was easily the best aspect

This is one of the great places to take the kids for a day out. They have some Educational exhibition sections that let the kids get involved. An I max theater is another part of the building and a snack bar. If you are stuck with some thing to do with the kids this is the place to go.

Went with our great niece for a Christmas party. While there we enjoyed the science displays and the travelling exhibit Indiana Jones. As my title says you can learn some new scientific things there while having some fun.

As always, they have outdone themselves. A most enjoyable day. While admission is a 'little' pricy, the entry fee includes access to most areas of the building. (Not the movie theater). The various exhibits are / entertainment areas are very interactive - especially for the little ones.
