July 27 (Sunday) was my first time at Science World in over two decades. It did not disappoint. My new memories of it are just as good (possibly better) than my childhood ones. I was there for open at 10am. I spent close to two hours wandering all the rooms and hands-on exhibits. I didn't feel out of place as... More

We visited with a group of 40 middle school band kids and this was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The Omnimax theatre is awesome and huge! All the exhibits are very well done as we all were captivated. The science demonstrations were very interesting as was the part were you test your skills with vertical jumping, "wheelchair"... More

It was packed with kids but what would you expect on a rainy day. My family had fun (ages 4,6 & 9) we spend over 3 hours there. The Eureka area is what the kids enjoyed the most but the other exhibitor were interesting too. There is plenty to do and the science shows are good fun too. Take food... More

We arrived by water taxi and had expected to spend 2 hours tops here. not a bit of it!! the teens loved it. plenty of interactive exhibits that tested them particularly the sports science section and the brain teasing puzzles on the first floor. This is a really good lively hands on science centre. the imax was a little disappointing... More

Good for families with school age children. Not for younger ones or teens. Must love noisy environments and lots of crowds. Fast paced, interactive theme rooms, live show & upstairs theatre. Can be costly, but worthwhile trip.

20-25 minute walking distance from downtown Vancouver (Richards Street), Science World provides an extensive child and parent-child interactive activities, a good day out for the whole family. The Journey to the Pacific shown at the Omnimax Theatre (at an extra fee) which captured the amazing underwater habitat of the Pacific including some breathtaking shots of Whale Sharks is worth watching....

Took my 8 year old daughter and she had a blast. A little pricey but make sure you let them know you have CAA/AAA or military ID to save up to 20%. We paid a little extra for the imax movie and thoroughly enjoyed it. You need a minimum of 3-4 hours to get to experience all of the interactive... More

Pretty good science museum, even for inquisitive teens. Wide variety of exhibits. Cool geodesic building with views of False Creek and BC place. White Spot restaurant inside is a bonus, but beware, they ran out of the healthy salads when we went for a late lunch.
