Everyone in Van knows about ScienceWorld and we have now been there about 4-5 times the past two years as they have great temp' exhibitions which appeal to my 6 year old. Recently Animation and now Dinosaurs. Both of these were exceptional. Quite kids orientated, but as an adult it is still interesting and enjoy every visit. This is a... More

Wow! I hadn't been here for years, but boy is this a great place for kids. Our three year old loved it. The temporary dinosaur exhibit was splendid and the kids rooms are just brilliant. Highly recommended.

While I agree that some of the activities are kid oriented, my wife and I, middle aged adults, had a great experience. We managed to spend about 3 hours wandering around the different features and probably could have spent more time if we had it. When taking the time to read about the activities, and not just "play" them, we... More

I remember it being more fun as a child. I returned on a boring day off with a few friends and didn't enjoy ourselves as much as we had hoped. It doesn't help that children are everywhere hogging the interactive games haha.

We brought our 4 year old, and there was more than enough to keep her entertained and having fun until she dropped out of pure exhaustion. We enjoyed all the hands-on displays and puzzles, as well as the room for younger kids. We didn't even get to all of the rooms and displays before she ran out of steam. They... More

Great fun for kids of all ages. Most recent visit there with my daughter and my wife. Had lots of fun with the different games. Especially like the balls that get shot by air, and the water on the second floor.

Lots of informative exhibitions. The best (and worst) was the eureka section. Lots of hands on activities. Great fun if you are a kid, and, good for science world, kids obviously felt a comfortable sense of belonging. My spouse and I accompanied our child who was excited to come and who loved it. Many of the exhibits were at kid's... More

I couldn't wait to give this review because I loved this place! I'm an adult and went with my husband (artist and engineer respectively). We are not "relax on the beach" type people and are always looking for things to do on vacation. This museum is completely hands on. The exhibits were great, lots of things that touch on being...
