After many visits to Vancouver this was our first visit to Science World. While much smaller than the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, I was surprised by how much fun our 7 year old had during our 3 hour visit - he actually enjoyed it more than the Ontario Science Centre - what a surprise! . Overall both adults and... More

I meet many students here. They love running around and exploring on their own first. Them they share their discoveries with me! Good for half a day or more. Lots of hands on learning especially for active boys.

The kids really enjoyed the place. Reminds me the children's museum of Boston. A lot of things to see / to do there.

This was my first visit to science world since they did the renovations, I was very impressed. The galleries are all very hands on and are suitable for all ages. We arrived before 10:00am and there was already a line up, and it became really busy by 11:00am. Unfortunately we only had two hours, we really needed about five to... More

Having grown up in Vancouver, I remember going to the original Science World and was excited to take my own children, ages 3 + 6. We were not disappointed! The displays were all very interactive, and there seemed to something that would appeal to every age group/interest. I love that my kids could try out so many new things, and... More

Great for kids and adults alike. Tons of hands on exhibits with lots of variety in content. My cousin, his girlfriend, my husband, and I had 12 hours to kill in Vancouver until we had to catch our flight. We decided to check out Science World. What a great decision! Even as 4 adults, we were thoroughly entertained for probably... More

I took my 14 year old son here and at first he felt it was pitched at a young age range, but 4 hours later it was hard getting him to leave. A great, great place. Loved the science demos which were delivered by enthusiastic staff. Lots of explosions! I would definitely recommend visiting.

Very interesting place, lots of interesting scientific stuff. Incredible Imax theatre and all kinds of gadgets. A scientific oriented student would enjoy this place very much. Finding parking was kind of difficult.

Good for children. My son loved the museum. It had a lot of interesting things yo do and there were many different activities. My only complain was the people and how rude they can be. For example kids not waiting their turns and parents not stopping them from skipping lines. Otherwise a fun museum to take little ones. We broke... More
