We went to science world with our two years old son. They have an awesome kids playground and many of the other experiments are fun for toddlers too, even they do not understand the scientific background. Carry changing or rain clothes for your toddlers with you. Some of the experiments include water splashing and they get easily wet.

interestingly informative and educational place for both kids and adults, this place sometimes holds events and exhibition which could be hard to get tickets to or registration are always full by the first day itself, wanted to register my daughter for the summer day camp @science world but was told that they have reached full capacity by the first day...

On the one day of rain that we experienced during our trip to Vancouver we decided to visit the science museum. Its very hands on (like think tank in Birmingham here in the UK but much bigger) and kids will love it . We spent several hours there and enjoyed it. The Dyson exhibit in particular was really good fun.... More

We loved it! Really recommend visiting it. The dinosaurs exhibition is amazing! My kids (and I) had a lot of fun playing with the Keva planks. We spent the whole day there and learned many interesting things. I highly recommend visiting this place!!

Loved the Science World. It's easily accessible via Sky Train and lots of activities for young kids to explore. Our Young toddler loved all the water related activities and even the adults also loved the little puzzles/activities for us to try The one negative thing I don't like is the food selection. There is only one burger place to get... More

Like many other science museums, this one is a great place for the grand children. Interactive activities, lots of fun "experiments" and an interesting geo-dome makes the place worthy. It could use some better signage, perhaps in French and even Chinese.

This is one of the most interesting attraction in downtown Vancouver. The special part about this place is the building. The building has different colors on sides and a dome on top. The admission price is very high but still attract lot of travers.

I travelled with my 9yr old son a short journey on the Skyline railway from Granville station which is a few minutes walk from Canada Place. It was then a 2 minute walk to Science World. Entrance fees were very reasonable. There was so much to see and do. Lots of fun interactive exhibits which kept my son occupied throughout... More

I dislike stale museums full of furniture {I can go to a furniture store at home] give me a museum full of things to do and learn. Kids friendly so much so that they have to be dragged out.

Having teenagers who really enjoy anything to do with science we were very much look forward to visiting here, and to be fair it was ok and we whiled away a few hours. But having been to much better science attractions/ museums I suppose we were just expecting a little bit more for the teenager age group. It felt very... More
