Normally I enjoy museums even if they are intended for younger audiences, but I found Science World quite boring as I was travelling without children. The displays seemed quite simplified compared to what I normally seen at children-centric museums. I specifically went here for the special exhibit in January (Animals Inside Out), which, though really fascinating, was less exciting than... More

We created special memories by 4 generations of us going to Science World! It was exciting to see one & all play & learn here fr. 1.5 yr old to my mom who is 85! We really enjoyed every bit of it. The body works was great.

The three-star is the average of what I really like and really don't like about this Play-seum. Despite of some misgivings I still recommend others to visit, just keep in mind some of the annoyance you may run into. What I like: really creative, action-filled play areas where kids of all ages can engage, altho more so for 2nd graders... More

We visited Science World with our family on a rainy weekend day. The admission is a bit pricy, but luckily we were members of our local science museum, which automatically gave us access to the Vancouver museum. My two children, aged 5 and 7, really enjoyed the interactive exhibits. We also watched a movie in the massive dome, which isn't... More

I went here with my school as a kid, so it's been a while. I thought this would be something my kids would enjoy. It was. Loads of this to touch, spin and play with! Hands on science. It was a great time. We spent the whole day there and topped it off with an IMAX feature. Great day!

We went to see the Animal World exhibit at Science World. With taxes it was $31 each plus $10 parking so totally cost my husband and I $35 each to see this exhibit. Only stayed an hour and a half. Not nearly as good as Body World. Felt ripped off.

Good for adults as well as kids. My husband & I ( aged 40s) had great fun playing \competing on the displays & interactive games. Takes about 3 hours if you don't go into the additional exhibit section

We visited now in January when there is a temporary exposition aimed more towards adults which made the price of admission worthwhile yet the price is a bit elevated for adults considering what you actually can do inside. The interactive part of the museum is not exclusive for kids though and you'll end up becoming one yourself as you discover... More

It looks really nice from the outside especially during night time where the light makes it glow! But be mindful, the entrance ticket for this attraction is OMG. Don't bother going in if u r on a budget travel. But u still have to come here at night for a walk. It is beautiful in this area especially u also... More

My husband and I are in our 60s and thoroughly enjoyed this museum, even on a Saturday with lots of kids. Actually, the joy and exuberance of youth made it all the more enjoyable. We loved interacting with the various exhibits, especially the energy and recycling exhibits. We stayed about 1 1/2 hours and left for lunch at Craft (100... More

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighborhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
