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

If you are between 5 and 12 then you will have a whale of a time. For everyone else you should give it a miss especially if the kids are off school. All the exhibits are geared towards younger kids. They did say there is an evening opening just for adults once a month, but I didn't see that the... More

We planned to go to Science World rain or shine, but ended up to be a rainy day. It's a short walk from Main Street Skytrain. My son enjoyed it alot and probably wouldn't want to leave if we didn't ask him to leave. We did find admission to be a tad expensive. Especially since we spent most of the... More

Although my 10 year old enjoyed her day here very much, I do feel that $22.50 for an adult admission is rather steep, afterall, most adults are here only as an accompaniment to their children, so why charge them such a high entry fee? I ended up paying over $60 by the time we purchased something to eat for lunch... More

We take our kids here (6 year old and 18 year old!) every time we visit Vancouver. They are always changing the exhibits and there is always something new to explore. There is fun for kids and teens... And a WhiteSpot for mom's and dad's to eat lol.

Lots of interaction for the kids. They get to try everything and don't realize they are learning. Fun for adults too. Pricey but we explored for over 3hrs. Found that the exhibits don't flow well and seems like you are moving back and forth between "labs". The kids loved it.

My husband and I saw that the Body Works exhibit was on at Science World, so we decided to go specifically for this. The museum seemed kid-friendly, which we didn't mind even though we don't have children. The Body Works wasn't the real thing. I'm not sure how they got away with using the same name as the popular, well-known... More
