Science world is a wonderful place for children and for those amongst us who are young at heart. It is a very well run, educational, fun place. We spent 5 great hours there and the children, 3 and 7 could have stayed longer. We got the package which included the omni movie.

The staff are pleasant, the place is clean and the variety of activities the kids and adults can view and participate in can easily fill a day. I definitely recommend Science World when visiting Vancouver.

Would not hav.e enjoyed this museum as just an adult visitor, but for kids I would say this is the best science museum I ever visited. Lots of hands-on exhibits and very good science shows

The racy ads promised something "interesting". The actuality was markedly different. The target market for this is somewhere in the "young teens", so if you have a child in that category it is potentially interesting. It misses the mark on so many levels, though, that it requires more explanation than it may be worth: there is, for instance absolutely no indication of what the act of sex actually involves. Lots of "feel good" stuff for those beginning to explore their sexual natures, but too much missing for an adult audience.

For anyone actually interested in the *science* behind sexuality there is virtually nothing. For anyone aging and curious about sex and aging there is virtually nothing. For anyone looking for interesting info behind alternatives within sexuality there is absolutely nothing.

Ignore the numbers on the exhibits - they should probably have been removed as they are simply confusingly random.

We breezed through in about an hour and went on to other areas.

My sister and I visited this exhibit over the weekend, and found it to be a waste of time and money. This exhibit is better suited to teenagers than to adults. Talking about puberty and how to put a condom on. I would not recommend this exhibit to any mature adults. We paid almost $30 each to get in to this exhibit, and we left after less than an hour; it was very small and not worth the time or money.

We (2 adults and 2 kids age 11 and 13) really enjoyed the hands on museum. We spent over 4 hours there. We also went to see omnimax (Arctic) which we all enjoyed.
