  • For the most part, I enjoyed it. I felt the price was fair. The negatives - the planetarium smelled musty and the screen quality could be better. The observatory was shut down as it had snowed. The positives - Lots of educational exhibits. Fun exhibits, especially in the body area. Interesting mind boggling puzzles throughout. Nice gift shop. Hours are much better than their abysmal counterpart in Calgary. Next time I'm in the city I'll be back.
  • A subpar, dilapidated ripoff. Let's face it - for an admission cost on par with facilities such as the Toronto Zoo or the Royal BC Museum, the Telus World of Science is a horrible value. First impressions; after paying around $80 admission for 4 people, you are offered a photocopied map of the facility on double sided computer paper. Many of the displays are outdated or not working, some still depicting Pluto as a planet or insinuating that it is still debatable, while many of the interactive displays are working on decades old technology. The main draw to this place appears to be it's "sell-out science" i.e. "Angry Birds Universe" (wtf) and those type of exhibits. Telus World of Science is suitably entertaining for kids in the 4-8 yrs old category but let's be honest - kids that age would be just as entertained by a McDonald's play place or pretty much anything else.
  • The entrance way was confusing. The line up was for iMax but then turned out to be for general admission as well. It's very kid friendly, I would go on a first date maybe but being in my late 20s after one visit, it's meh. I was there two years ago as well and not much has changed. iMax was super cool though. Love that the shows change
  • Our family loves the Telus World of Science. We purchased a family pass last year and will be doing so again this year. The exhibits are fun and interactive. We have enjoyed the visiting exhibits as well. Out recent favorite was Sherlock Holmes. It was fantastic!
  • While spending our vacation here in Edmonton, my family had a chance to visit the science centre and my children loved it! so much scientific material that they could learn, and the wonderful staffs would answer all the question that my children would throw at them! Wow, thank you for such a memorable experience for me and my family :)
