I love going to science world. There is something for every age group and interest. My grandson was only a year and a half. He loved the balls with the water. He also enjoyed the room for only for the young ones.

This place was great fun. Sure the kids ran around and played while learning, but my wife and I had a blast as well. The theater shows short videos on a wide variety of subjects, they are both fun and educational. We wandered all the floors and enjoyed all the areas. The special feature on lights was cool, as well... More

My kids love it here every time we visit. They are 3 and 5. There are lots of interactive displays so they never get bored. Interesting for adults too. Highly recommend for families travelling to Vancouver.

We were visiting the world of Science in Vancouver, and since we are adults, we expected at least something which is worth the time, and an exciting exhibition for the adults. When we arrived, we were astonished about the large number of small kids running around, but unfortunately we found out, that all the experiments they showed were really only... More

First time visitor. Kids loved the contraption outside and the music it made. The entire place was safe, clean, interesting for all types of interests (nature, eco, history, physics etc). Visited about 2 hours and felt pretty satisfied at that time. Really good facility.

Lots to see and do for little ones (probably kids under 12). We have an annual pass and given the amount of rain we get in the winter good place to let the kids loose and try out a few different things and hopefully they learn something at the same time. Can get busy and would not recommend for adults... More

Great place for kids and adults. A lot of hands on activities to keep everyone busy. Shows throughout the days. Lockers inside to tuck away coats, etc. We found out the hard way that they are closed on Mondays. Be sure to check before you go in case this changes. McDonalds right across the street. Overall a full day with... More

A fun, hands on museum geared mostly toward younger kids. We went with our 13 yr old son and while he enjoyed himself, there wasn't a lot for him to do. There are a few cool exhibits, a light exhibit and the human body were our favorites.

This was definitely worth the visit, the attractions were definitely designed for the younger kids but we still enjoyed it. The Omnimax was a highlight of our visit! Also, the food was excellent, I think it was White spot but a very nice burger!
