I love the experience of watching the Spirit Bear on the Imax. It was breathtaking to see this beautiful and rare animal in its natural habitat. I only wish they showed more of the bear.

Science World is always a great schedule filler or that is what is usually the reason for fitting it in! Wrong! This is a very interesting interactive place to spend quality time with all ages. Probably most enjoyable with younger visitors, those smiles are priceless!

Cool science museum. Fun interactive exhibits that were informative too. Very big museum, we were not able to everything in a few hours, but did what we wanted to do. Go on a rainy day like we did, but be prepared for crowds.

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,

Yes! They allow photography throughout the building. The only exception is for some special exhibits (this is a rare occurrence).
