    Overall the science center is pretty good. We went there for the Pixar Animation Display. It was pretty cool, but I would not recommend it for kids under 10. Most of it was well beyond my sons underst...  more »

    This place was amazing to explore and to bring along 2 kids. We were lucky enough to catch the Pixar exhibit, which was very informative and incredible to see! Lots of stations to learn from and try. ...  more »

    Great place to take kids to learn and have fun. The food court has good options for food. The price is high if you only go once but you should consider getting an annual pass if you go several times a year. You can also apply your annual pass to other science centers across Canada. They offer summer camps as well.

    Good educational values a fun place to bring the kids. Hands on learning. Expect to spend more than 2 hours.

    It seemed like every other demonstration was broken or not working properly. There was also a ton of kids there on a school trip, which is fine, but I got no warning of the impending chaos upon purchasing our tickets. And school kids in big groups are little jerks.

    Awesome venue but the permanent exhibits are getting old and dated. Otherwise they have awesome venue come in lately.

    I do not support telus world of science. Much to expensive and literally same exhibits over and over again. The floor star are good but I had the displeasure of meeting some members of upper management. Rudest and most degrading people I have ever met. You will loose a lot of business from me and my family and friends.

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
