Having visited the science centers in Montréal and London I jumped at the chance to explore Vancouver's Science World. I should have been an indication to me that I was the only adult unaccompanied by children, but I paid the fee and went in anyway. If I was 10 years old, I would have loved the place, and I highly...

Good place to take children. Exhibit changes regularly. Walkable from most areas of downtown Vancouver. Close to the Olympic Village, Chinatown, train station, etc. Accessible by water taxi, bus, sky train.

Spent a long time here. Really great exhibits. The kids enjoyed it. Lots to do and see. There were chickens and a garden outside. Some live animals in another exhibit inside

The perfect destination for kids and teens to learn, experience, and enjoy. A real hands on adventure, worth visiting on a overcast or rainy day. Come early, bring some time, and avoid the weekends or holidays.

We spent hours at science world with our 10 year old daughter. The exhibits are well laid out and there is something for everyone. The hands on activities make learning fun and the staff is really interested in making science accessible. I definitely recommend

This is one of the best places to visit if you have young kids. They learn a lot about science, the environment and have fun at the same time. I think that one day isn't enough to be able to watch all the shows and go around the whole place because there are a lot of things to see and... More

If you are an adult not taking kids, I would say pass it up. I bought a senior's ticket online during a weekday in the summer for$22.05 tax included. There were a lot of little kids screaming and jumping ahead of you so you generally can't hear the reaction of the experiment or be able to concentrate on it.

After spending six hours (I know it was 6 hours because I had to pay the CD$18 for parking) thoroughly engrossed at Science World, my kids asked to go back the next day! This was the only attraction in the Vancouver area that we visited where my children asked to return. The exhibits were fantastic. I learned so much just... More

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.
