  • Hands down the best place to bring kids for a few hours a week. Tons of fun, interactive exhibits. Great cafeteria with reasonable prices and good sized portions. The new space gallery is great. The new planetarium is amazing, my kiddo and I love laying down on the big bean bags and touring the galaxy. The rotating exhibits keep things fresh, especially when they're free admission exhibits. You have to work around the school classes, especially in the kids area (the new one seems like it'll be bigger thankfully). If you're allergic to loud, excited children then you might want to stick to early mornings or the adult-only Dark Matters nights. If you have kids, or want to recapture that feeling you had when you were a loud, excited child visiting the Space and Science Centre on a school trip, this is a definite recommend. And it has free parking! A GIANT free parking lot full of deliciously free parking. Freeeeeee!! (Apologies, I'm experiencing residual trauma from my visit to the new museum) .... free parking
  • Very educational experience for the whole family or just with friends. I love that the exhibits are interactive. This interactivity helps you to learn and retain. Fun facts about the planets and your body. Great indoor activity especially in our long winter months.
  • The TELUS World of Science has done a great job with creating engaging exhibits for the whole family. As a group of adults, we all highly enjoyed ourselves even in a space geared towards children. The dome theatre has utilized new 360 filming techniques to put on some fantastic shows. The only downside were a few pieces have started to feel dated and could use a facelift.
  • Been here many times, never gets old. So many revolving exhibits and so many interactive aspects. Love the space exhibit and will be going to the animal inside out one shortly! Well worth it!
  • Probably the best science center in Canada and gets better all the time. Better than, VanCouver, Calgary and Toronto. It's so interactive. Everything has a pile of thought behind it. On top of that there are hugely informative/theatrical shows every half an hour and there are also people who wonder around doing experiments ... if that's not enough there's also an I-max and science competitions every hour. AND THEN... if you get hungry they have everything you can think of and if you order a lot they bring it out to you. The gift shop is amazing too. Huge selection at great prices. Yep. So gooood! 👍 👍 big ones!
