My wife and I went to this and we found it an exciting experience. We found the clues, performed the experiments and tracked down "whodunit". We did find that the shop at the end didn't really have a lot of Sherlock related items for sale. It was more generic

Date out with my hubby, was fun. We're glad we went when the Sherlock Holmes Exhibit was on. We spent well over an hour in there trying to solve the crime correctly and trying not to miss a clue. Then we went to the IMAX 3-D deep sea film. What a good presentation. Then back into the science museum we... More

We have a family membership and it is put to good use. The kids love coming to the science garage (we have made marble mazes, climbed a rock wall, learned about water levels - all interactive), we have built launched rockets (special programming - 1 to 3pm during the summer for 10 bucks each), and we play with the water...

I have been to this Telus World of Science location three times. I love how they have feature exhibitions. I went to the Harry Potter one and the Sherlock Holmes one. They are fun and very interactive for anyone. The only thing that I would say needs improvement is the regular exhibition. It hasn't changed at all ever since my... More

Thankfully we're members of a science centre out-of-province so we didn't need to pay admission. Otherwise, the price of admission is a little steep for what you get to experience. Saw two shows - the cryogenic show was good, show in the planetarium was so-so.

We usually buy a family membership and make good use of it! The special event exhibits such as the Harry Potter and Star Wars Exhibits are fantastic and the regular exhibits are fun and engaging.
