The place is mediocre but the service and organization absolutely horrible. My wife was with visible pregnancy but they didn't let her to use bathroom. The twist is that we had a ticket but for a 4-D movie that was scheduled in two hours. Later, they asked us to leave an ID and a credit card for the duration of... More

Our family had a great time there. The only issue was not having enough time (we spent 5 hours and found we could have spent a full day there). There are lots of activities and it is highly recommended for everyone.

The place was teeming with kids. What do you expect during the summer break, right? Well, for $25.75 plus tax and an extra charge to watch a movie in the IMAX cinema, I want some exhibits for people older than 10. The gift shop was not great either. Would not return. The Ontario Science Centre is way better and for... More

Great for kids & adults. Educational & fun exhibits. Recommend at least a few hours to look around & see everything. The science shows are especially good for kids ages 4-11.

We really enjoyed the omnimax cinema. We watched the humpback whale show. There were a number of inter active other exhibits but we didn't learn much we didn't already know. Our kids are 14, 12 and 9. Maybe geared towards younger kids.

Science World is a great place to spend some time for children of all ages.Plan on spending about three hours to enable enough time to view all the exhibits.

Phone ahead to see what the subject is and great for kids and adults. There is always a participatory activity and everyone loves it. and you can learn a lot whether its about dinosaurs or science. . So take some time and then you can go for a long walk around it and later for ice cream at Marios, right... 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.
