This place is just plain amazing! As a kid I always dreamed of visiting places like this, and I was very happy to finally go to one. There are space suites, parts of rockets, and even a piece of a meteorite! I paid alittle extra...More

Not as good as it could be, what was on display was interesting but could have had more. The the film that was on when we where there was about the Galaxy, we found it interesting and informative, not one one for very young children.

When you paid your entry fee you feel you are walking into a dated exhibit. A lot of the interactive ones simply not working or using outdated software (1990s). It was fun going into a spacesuit but the actual exhibit space was pretty small. The...More

Thought that we would enjoy learning about space however the content was very old, videos dated, exhibits that didn’t work and an extremely small area to explore for 18.00 a person. Movie, Astroid Extreme, was mediocre.

It's a good idea to have a museum dedicated to space exploration here in Vancouver. Unfortunately HR MacMillan Space Centre is a bit outdated and has not really updated their exibits or shows in a long while. Several exhibits are not functional (ie: the one...More

As the title says, most of the exhibits are for children and the science demo also. It does have interesting parts and the Planetarium would have been very good if the display had been in clearer focus. Its quite pricey. It has no near bus...More

After having numerous visits to the aquarium, space world and other fun learning institutions in Vancouver I had high hopes for this one. The cost to get in is close to how much it costs to get into the other places that I mentioned previously...More
