The Science World offers great learning opportunities for all ages. Outside of the iconic dome is also a place of awesome photo opportunities for the skyline on the other side of Vancouver's skycrapers. There is also a great walking trail along the river banks.

I was there with my 8 year old Weeman...I swear I was pulling him around to go see everything. I appreciate the interactive challenges they’ve put throughout. There’s nothing like healthy competition when answering questions about anatomy!!

Interesting hand's on exhibits (many of which were meant for children) that even as an adult I wanted to play with. My bad that I didn't read the find print. Saw a great Omnimax movie about the Amazon.

I went to the space outside of science world for a few pictures. It is a really nice landscape for photos! There is a park aside of it, and at the night the lights are turned on, really nice!

Pixar exhibit was awesome and educational. Fun day for the kids. There are activities for all ages, and I would revisit on a trip back to Vancouver.

Great to see the Pixar exhibition. Shame you can't pay separately to do that, so have to pay to navigate the hundreds of excitable children in the main museum! Pleased the Pixar exhibition was timed and staggered, allowing for everyone to enjoy and appreciate each...More

I was fairly unenthusiastic about this at first as it was a lovely day to be outside but my son wanted to go so we did. I was so glad we did. The exhibits are amazing and totally interactive. We could have stayed for hours...More

Everybody loved it, the kids and us. We got to see the Pixar exhibition which was really interesting. Everything is made for children to understand how things work (or just to play, depending their ages). There are some quiet places as well and that's a...More

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,

Depends on how much time you have Available. I was strapped for time and didn’t get to explore the whole place. There is lots to do and see. So 3-5 hrs is not unreasonable. There is also an outdoor play area.
