  • Our first time to visit this place and we were not that impressed. It is pricey paid $71 for 2 adults and 2 kids (age 4 & 5) my 2 yr old son is free tho. It is spacious but for a big city like edmonto...  more »

  • There is plenty to see between the shows and the galleries. The angry bird exhibit was awesome too. The cafeteria food is average but you can bring something with you.  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.
  • 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.
  • Fantastic place, tonnes to do and for all age groups. Definitely check out the maker's garage to the left of the entrance, wow!
  • Did the SOS zombies event, a complete money grab. Event was poorly organized and overbooked for the space that was used. Got there at 8:00 and did not start the game until 1130, "training" was fun but when it was complete we were herded into the imax theatre for a 45 minute, grade six level lecture on viruses and brains that completely killed the mood followed by another move to the planetarium for another 30 minute lecture on the rules which were different from the training we received prior. Game started at 1130 and was done by 1215, over 120 people were crammed into the game space and the zombies never had a chance to actually scare anybody before they were taken out. Would not reccomend, the professional actors were good, but the zombies consisted of rubber masks and nothing else. Enjoy the World of Science otherwise but there special events have burned us twice now.
  • Great way to spend a day learning about all kinds of things, especially now while the museum is out of commission. Great with kids from toddler on up. Traveling exhibits vary hugely and cost extra(~30$) but have so far lived up to the hype. Hot tip- try an annual pass if you plan to visit more than twice!
