Great place for children all ages. It was very entertaining for my 7 and 9 years old, as well as my 3 years old. Definitely a great way to spend the day with kids

my boyfriend and I went here for the afternoon, it was super cool. Even though kind of for kids we still did all the activities and it was not too expensive which was nice. They also had a D-Day documentary playing in their omnimax theatre,...More

Science World is a must for families visiting Vancouver! You could spend an entire day working through the exhibits and the 5-storey movie screen was spectacular! We saw a film on iceage wildlife.

At Science World there is always something to do. Concepts of physics, chemistry, biology, and environmental science are explored through interactive exhibits and hands on learning. It's great for kids and grown-up kids-at-heart.

I would definitely agree that this is more of a fun place for kids and although informative it isn't really for adults like museums. Our 11 year old loved the hands on bits and the animal section. I enjoyed the fire show. Spent a great...More

A highly interactive attraction with something to interest the most finicky of kids (I think). There are 3D movies for those who prefer the less interactive. Even for toddlers, there's lots to see and do. My 12-year old twins (who I thought would be bored...More

Although its scale is not large, there are many hands on activities for young children to experience. Too bad my teenager son found is boring. Hope they can include something for teenagers in the future.

We visited using our museum's reciprocal agreement. The staff were so nice. We loved how many activities were touchable. There were multiple areas that the kids could take their time and explore at their own pace. FYI, parking can be tricky. If possible take the...More

Great destination to learn and explore for kids, the science show is the best way to learn while playing, you can enjoy half a day easily, better to bring some snacks and not to go on weekends.

Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its
rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of
Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place
responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'
might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques
and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the
waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting
amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant,

We will have a few hours between arriving on Amtrak around noon and going to the airport late afternoon, but can you store our luggage whilst we are at the attraction? Two (or three) suitcases around a science park clearly won't work out

There are small lockers at the science centre but I don't think they are big enough for suitcases. You might be better dropping them off at the airport first or depending whereabouts your train stops I believe Nordstrom... More

I am a member of a science center participating in the ASTC Passport program, but I didn't bring my membership card. Can I get admission to the Science World? Thank you

Hi there, a little late to the game here, but in the future, all ASTC membership holders can use their memberships for Science World. All ASTC centres offer reciprocal entry, including Pacific Science Centre.
