I wouldn't call it a museum exactly. There is a lot of activities for the kids (my son enjoyed a lot), but no so much for the parents. I was expecting something a little different, more like a museum. For the price, I think it should offer a little more.

Science world changes their displays so often that every time we go it's different. Our best ones are the Lego show and dinosaurs. When my boys were 5 we even sleep over at science world with the scout group. So much fun

Fascinating place to spend the morning or afternoon with kids. Lots of interactive displays which change regularly. Although it can be crowded sometimes its always worth a trip. I recommend a membership. The OMNIMAX theater is truly spectacular.

This is usually an easy attraction to spot for the fact that it is a ball-shaped structure. Science world was always one of my childhood favorite places to visit. My favorite parts are the theater it is giant. I also like the dinosaur bones and fossils

Expensive, lacks science, primarily an over-priced series of toys for small children to play with. Don't fork out unless you've got 6 year olds.

I have been to many science museums and although the kids usually enjoyed them somewhat, I was usually bored. Not this museum, although it was quite full and not that large (parking is a disaster) there was still plenty of things to do for both kids and adults. I as well as my family enjoyed this museum and best part... More

I feel sad for anybody who thinks this is just for kids - my husband and I had a great time playing on the exhibits and solving the puzzles. A few of them are meant for two people so it's probably a bit better to bring a friend, but there are lots of solo activities too. If you love puzzles... More

If you want your toddler to get engaged and familiar with games, science and new things, this is the place to go on a weekly basis. Their lego section is even great for adult and seniors. I've never seen my son and mom to be so engaged in one place!

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.
