I wish I had read reviews before this trip - there was very little actual science information for grown ups, and amounted to a couple of rooms with activities with push /pull handles etc. it was crawling with kids who were loving it but is definitely not for adults, which is a little disappointing as we paid $20 each just...

My partner and I (both 21 so still children at heart) went to have some fun. Absolutely packed with children who definitely weren't afraid to push you out of the way to play with something. The parents of the brats also just expected you to let their offspring push in line. Many of the exhibits were out of order. The... More

With the BC schools still being closed we took our grandchildren to Science World while there mother had an interview about the next Vegan cookbook she is to write. We had two hours which was just about the right length of time, too much more and us Seniors would have been dizzy with everything going on. They really enjoyed themselves.... More

Science World is well worth the visit if you have children. Me and my boyfriend had a few hours to kill, so went for a wander and found ourselves in the area. The brightly coloured/shiny exterior couldn't help but catch my eye. The exhibits are wonderfully interactive and extremely engaging, however we did feel the focus was predominately on the... More

Science World is well worth a visit, especially if you have children. There are several permanent exhibits that are all interactive and will provide hours of fun and learning. I like the fact that everything is kid friendly and children are encouraged to touch, explore, open boxes and enjoy. There are always changing exhibits that again are highly educational, and... More

The best part was the Omnimax where we watched "Rescue" (very well done). I do give full points to the amount of interactive activities they had. From wheelchair racing to trying to fit into a tiny box (which I did). We spent about 4 hours here which included the Omnimax. I think the stage demonstration was likely good but we... More

When your daughter asks to go to Science World, that's exactly where you go...Science World. We took the ferry from Granville Market to Science World and walked around the attraction. My daughters, 12 and 10, loved the place. The recycling display fascinated them and they had a blast playing on the Sports Test equipment. The Sports stuff might be a... More

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.
