“Science fun for all ages.”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

We have been to many science museums and Telus World of Science is a good bet and worth the cost. There is enough there to occupy children of all ages (and adults) for a few hours. There exhibits are well done, the building is clean and the employees are very helpful. The IMAX theatre was one of the most best we've been to. It had very comfortable seats and you were allowed to take snacks in with you!

“Great attraction”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Really nice museum, excellent attention, the place is really big, the exhibits are amazing as well as educational, my wife an I learned a lot and had a really great time, the surroundings are great for a walk, the museum is a bit expensive but really worth it. everything was in really good shape (other kid's museums are not), the gift shop have really great things and science stuff (not the usual cheap stuff), I will become a member this year so we can go again soon.

“Decent, not a lot for really young kids”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

They have a small area for kids under 3ish years which was great and my kids really enjoyed. But it's expensive admission to only spend time in that small area.

“Excellent learning experience!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Fun for the young and old. Very educational and the best Imax theatre in Canada!
Always a great place to go learn about science and take in a Star Theatre show or an Imax in the new Amazing 3D Imax theatre!!
