  • Goods at the IMAX, since the visit was really worth. Otherwise, the rest of the exhibition for adults was even slightly boring. It must be paradise for children.

  • Have been volunteering for the past three years here and absolutely love it! My parents paid for a membership with my little sister and they visit here almost every weekend. It's such a beautiful and welcoming place--why would anyone want to leave? Great things for both adults who want to explore science and younger kids.
  • As a lifetime resident of Vancouver, this has always been one of my favorite places to visit since I was a kid. Science World is very much family-oriented, and has a lot of fun, educational exhibits. The rotating exhibitions are also fantastic; some of my favorites included LEGO, dinosaurs, and Body Works. It's also very convenient to reach via transit, since it's right next to Main Street Skytrain station. Definitely a must-see for families living in Vancouver.
  • I love science world! There are fun things for adults and kids to enjoy. The omnimax movies are also awesome and really affordable.
  • Science World is one of the best ways to spend your time in BC. From the interactive, hands-on exhibits, to the world-class OMNIMax theatre, there is much for the child and adult in your group to experience and learn in a few hours. Science World is an emerging leader in BC, and globally, of educating adults and children about the incredible effects of connecting to our natural surroundings. A BC must!
  • Brilliant science museum for people of all ages. Lots of interactive exhibits mean you won't get bored here. A little pricey but worth the ticket.
