  • Spent 5 hours here and had to drag my 7 year old nephew out. He had such a great time playing and learning with all the interactive areas. Disappointed that a large portion of the place was closed for...  more »
  • Go even without children, enjoy the world of science opens its doors for you to interact with several experiments, try to solve puzzles and play like a child with various kinds of entertainment offered. There are some options to eat, like popcorn and the Triple O's, famous Canadian fast food. Set aside an afternoon for fun at the site, worth every penny!

  • A little on the boring side for adults. The large screen is impressive but haven't seen a worth while show in a while. Sea wall right outside is a great walk. Also checkout olympic village near by. Conveniently located near skytrain
  • Went here on a sat morning. Sooo many other kids and families, my daughter was having a blast and i would suspect learning a little too. Many of the exhibits are kid friendly but there are definitely some that cater more towards adults. I definitely suggest you bring a kid so you get to join in on the childish fun.
  • If you're looking for a place to bring out the inner child, or just to bring your children to, this is it. Lots of interactive exhibits that are just as fun for families as they are for first dates. Tip: Take a Water Taxi from here to Granville Island to make this a full day adventure (and save the ~2km walk).
  • Always love coming here. The science never gets old, the staff are always entertaining, and time seems to speed up inside the ball. There's only a triple O's in the building for food, so keep that in mind if you're planning to eat there. The burgers Are great and the fries are amazing.
  • Always amazing to go on a sunday whenni am runing out of ideas for the kids
