An enjoyable day, quite expensive admission

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... read 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

Our 11 year old grandchildren were totally immersed in all that Science World had to offer. We spent 5 hours there and still didn't get to see all the exhibits or do everything they wanted. The exhibits are extremely well done and draw the children into many different areas of science. I would have given it 5 stars except for... More

We are from the US and we have been to the Exploratorium in San Francisco, OMSI in Portland and well this is not on the same level. Most of the interactive stuff was broken or the computer was so slow that you couldn't work with it. Very small. Looks big on the outside. The restaurant smells terrible (I think its... More

the staff is great. the center stage shows are really informative and fun, kids love them. It is expensive to go, but if you are a local it's best to have a membership. Also, they have these awesome Adults only nights once a month and they are a riot. The Murder Mystery and Valentines ones usually sell out. Also, found... More

A visit to the Science World will cost you the better part of a brownie ($100.00) for 2 adults by time you factor in admission, the Omnimax Theater, a bite to eat and parking. Allow about 4 hours to absorb all the exhibits and Omnimax. The science demos were entertaining especially if fire, electricity and illusions are of interest to... More
