Initially seemed expensive,... But 3 times in a year and it pays for itself,... Not to mention the family can get in free to many other science centers and museums in North America. My 2 active boys stayed engaged for 4 hours! There are quiet spaces, active spaces, building, viewing,... Hey there is even a hollowed out giant cedar tree... More

There was a lot of new activities since we last visited science world. We kept the kids busy and totally engaged (8 and 10 year old boys) for over 3 hours without even going to the Omnimax. There was more we could have done as well. The building displays were great for the boys and so much active, hands on... More

My daughter loves this place. I find it over crowded and too expensive. I wish that adult tickets were cheaper. I would feel better about paying more for Her than me since the majority of it is geared for kids. By around two pm it gets very loud and there are too many people for me. I imagine it must... More

Even though our group included 2 adults, and 4 teenagers, our love of science was entertained at Science World. There were exhibits inside and outside. Teens and adults could enjoy themselves with dozens of puzzles. If you want to avoid the daycare and moms with young children, after 2 would be a good time to show up. When we first... More

We took our grandson and actually spent pretty much the whole day there. We travelled via the Canada Line and Sky Train which for him, was an adventure in itself. There is lots to see and do for kids and adults and places to get a bite or bring a lunch and snacks. There are different displays on the various... More

W loved this museum, it is fun for every age. Our boys are 12 and 14 and had so much fun with all the interactive exhibits. Amazingly we were able to mess around with all the hands-on exhibits even though we visited on a Sunday during spring break and it was crowded. Adults, teens and little kids will all love... More

Very hands on for young children. Lots to entertain them and very educational in a fun way. Cafe not very convenient or much choice. Suggest you take your own food. Probably suitable for children 3 - 12years. More of a half day visit. My son has a family membership and takes his daughter quite regularly and as she is growing... More
