  • We go to Science World several times a year. They change their main exhibit every few months. My kids (8 and 10) love the exhibits that do not change just as much as the new ones. The older they get, ...  more »

  • A must-visit! I spent a week volunteering here and enjoyed it immensely. Huge selection of exhibits catered for a wide range of ages. The Nature Park is my favourite area—be sure to check out the backyard hens! Plan to spend at least three hours here to be able to explore everything and experience one of the daily shows at center stage.
  • My 2 year old daughter loves science world so we go about once a week. She loves all the things to do and explore. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I find there are always several children who are obviously over 5 in the 0-5 play area who are quite pushy and don seem to care about the little ones . I wish there was more supervision regarding this issue. Overall we love science world!!!
  • I always have so much fun here. It's not just for kids but there's also stuff for adults. There's exhibitions that always stay the same and some new ones that come every few months. It's a great place to spend your afternoon! Always something to learn too :)
  • I have a membership here, and come frequently with my small son. The staff are friendly and the presentations they have are engaging. Their exhibits are well laid-out, and educational. The new Wonder Gallery is great, though still a bit crowded.
  • 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.
