  • This place is the best. There are a lot of reviews that said that there were too many people: we took this to heart and went on a Wednesday. There were people but not very many. We took our kids: 6, 4, and 2 year old. They all had a great time with pretty much everything. The new kids areas (finished a few months ago) was one of a kind - it was a huge tree-house like structure that was just for kids. We have been to the Seattle, Portland, and now Vancouver science centers since the beginning of this year - and this one is by far the best. We were there for 6 hours and didn't actually see everything - the kids didn't want to leave (except the 2 year old who needed a nap). Even though the kids had a blast, I would have enjoyed the science center even without them. If we come back to Vancouver, we will definitely return here.
  • World class! First time visiting and went with 2 small children (6 and 2). Spent the whole day there - opening until closing, more time than most people but it was great not being rushed. The kids want to go back next time we are visiting Vancouver
  • I love the diversity between exhibits....there is truly a little something for everyone. My 10 month old loves it here, my 3 year old daughter has a blast, and I have to drag my husband out everytime. I recommend the annual pass- a place that can be visited monthly without losing its allure.
  • My girlfriend took me here for the first time recently and I absolutely loved it. She was super excited to show me around and there was so much to do. I'm definitely buying a membership.
  • Fantastic venue for adults and kids to learn and be challenged. As a young parent, I was pleasantly surprised to see the extensive and creatively inclusive kids play area for those 0-5. Beside this space is a kids play research centre run by UBC.
