We try come here as often as possible. The kids always enjoy themselves and we always get to interact with them.. Even though a lot of stuff remains the same they still enjoy spending a few hours here.

Not that great for adults. Not very many exhibits and they are mostly set up for children. We were three adults visiting and there were some things of interest. The children that were there seemed to be having a great time.

We were here for the Super Science Club (Family Night) helping as a volunteer with the event. The kids and their parents had so much fun. Later we watch an Omnimax movie on astronomy which was truly amazing! Your Kids would certainly love this place!

Science World can be a great deal of fun for almost anyone, but if you are looking for something that will keep school aged kids happy and interested, this is a particularly good attraction. The exhibits and programmes do change periodically; when my child was much younger, her favourite was the "grossology" exhibit. There is also regular presentations in the... More

Lots of great technology; Science World is ideal for a developing mind. As an adult, there's still a lot of fun and learning to be had with plenty of interactive activities designed for all ages. Ever lit up a light bulb by running in a human-sized hamster wheel? I have! Most impressed by the house located outside, 220FT squared, designed... More

We booked tickets for the special showing of Hubble for the 25th Anniversary. Absolutey outstanding. If you have only seen IMAX, you owe it to yourself to experience this. The museum itself is nice, but mare a hands on Children's museum. Which is great for families with small children. The Theater is the don't miss.

It was nice visiting a place like this where it was Hands On and you were encouraged to touch and experiment with the displays. Very informative as well. Easy to get to from the Skytrain.

There are so many different areas to visit. Great place for families and kids. There are a lot of interactive areas. We also got to see what we will possibly look like at age 65. We saw an iMax movie on the lemurs it was very cool. Highly recommend going here. Can not wait to go back.

This science center is quite large with four different floor of exhibits and activities for everyone in the family to enjoy. The very top floor offers an outdoor garden and has very nice views of the false creek harbor. When we visited the animation exhibit was visiting and it was quite interesting for teenagers. There is also a room for... More
