  • Found this attraction to be geared more for younger children - up to age 12-15, but still had a fun time with two toddlers and two other adults. Good demonstrations/talks that engaged even the smalles...  more »
  • Built for the expo, science world is worth a visit, preferably a one sunny day, cycling. The area itself is not worth much as we in the suburbs. After the 2010 Olympics is located adjacent to the Olympic village, a myriad of condominium for much bought as an investment by Asians and left empty. Not far, however you get at Chinese garden, very nice and then to China town. An unpretentious afternoon.

  • 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
