  • It is a very exspensive place for what is offered. The exhibits are old and uninteresting. The soap dispensers in the bathrooms don't work. Horrible for a place like this where you have to touch every...  more »
  • It wasn't worth what we paid to get in, but it was interesting. I'd only go again if I had a discount.  more »

  • We consistently have a fun time at the World of Science, and are very excited for the updates to the space gallery. The green earth gallery presents climate change with a nod to the province's dependence on oil & gas, and has items of interest for both young children and adults. By far the kids' favourite part is the play area which features a airplane they can pretend to fly,a fantastic water table (bring a change of clothes!) and a treehouse. There is a mother's room in the kids area. In the science garage there is usually a building activity on, which is great for older kids (compressed air rockets were difficult for our preschooler) but also hands on activities for a variety of ages. The special exhibits seem very well chosen, we have really been interested and enjoyed all of those we have been to.
  • I have enjoyed the Telus World of Science for decades. It has always been able to attract the best and biggest travelling feature exhibits even though the permanent galleries are becoming tired and obsolete. Still a great place for young kids though and hopefully will see its well deserved upgrades come to fruition soon. Currently, I visit almost exclusively for the IMAX Theatre. Its the largest in the province and shows cool documentaries as well as Hollywood blockbusters for much cheaper than the theatre chains and with good food from its newly renovated cafeteria.
  • Very nice interior and exterior. Love their exhibits. Imax incredible. But removing one star because the parking area is too small. But all in all it is great facility you will be walking out happy for sure.
  • We went there yesterday and it was a very good time. We gave it 5 stars because it is interactive and you can learn while having fun. I really enjoyed the play area it was a lot of fun for the kids.
  • Really fun place to spend time as a child or an adult. Exhibits are great. Looking forward to future ones. Some parts of exhibits do have glitches or didn't work. Super clean environment. IMAX was great - sound and visual quality.

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.
