We came here in hope that our kid would learn a great deal about science. Not so! The place was crowded. There are a lot of wasted space. The only place that our son had some fun was the area where he could throw balls. Considering the price we had to pay, this place was not at the level we... More

Thought I had stepped into a play place over run with 5 year olds who it really is geared for. Last visited about 8 years ago and remembered that my young children really liked it. But didn't remember it being worthy enough of the pricey entrance fee to go back anytime soon. Thanks to 2 free adult passes we went... More

Science World is incredible ... And the beginning of the tour, you can spend a huge time just trying to solve that problems that the Sciente offers for us ... If you have 5 years old or 20 ( like me) with a open mind... You will have fun going to this place ... Go and take your kids with... More

I visited the museum with my 5 year old and my 3 year old sons. They simply loved it. There are many interactive gadgets and they were fascinated. When the museum closed they begged to stay a little more. I recommend it.

Went here with the extended family and everyone had a great time. Tons of fun interactive displays that explain the physics and science going on. Would recommend devoting a lot of time here though, it is pricey.

Over priced. Way over priced. The cost for young children is $15.25 each and the cost for an adult is $22.50. Science World is definitely not worth it. At ages of 9 and 10, my grandchildren were too advanced for most of the exhibits and as an adult, I paid $22.50 just to follow them around. I was annoyed by... More

I visited with a family of four, two daughters aged 9 & 12, I just wasn't that good; satisfactory perhaps. I do feel that younger children would be most suitable; lots of gimmicky activities to entertain. Not for me! Aussies Abroad!

A great place for youngster to learn science in a fun way rather than sitting in a class and only look at the pictures. Recommended for learning. Cheers, MT

This big centre kept our 5 and 8 year old boys entertained all one rainy afternoon. They had a ball with the puzzles and interactive exhibits, and we didn't even have time to go to one of the shows! The centre is easy to get to by train (Skytrain millenuim line)and well worth a visit
