This rating is only for the kids play area. I haven't really gone elsewhere. So happy the new floor for the water area is not slippery and doesn't flood anymore..thank you! Love they give waterproof bibs to wear. The climbing area is super fun and awesome. So happy they allows kids to wear shoes on there now. Has clean Change room and washrooms. Fun places for kids to explore
I thoroughly enjoy science, both theoretical and practical. The ideas behind the displays and interactive materials are great. The only thing is that they are strongly oriented towards younger children. It's great to see the excitement and joy on the children's faces while they explore new knowledge. I'd just prefer a more adult touch. Also, $24 per adult seems a bit much.
I love the exhibits. I’ve been to two of the adult nights, worth going once! There’s always something to learn. It’s beautiful outside. A must see when visiting. Easy to get to by transit and close to other attractions. Plenty of places to eat nearby as well. Views of False Creek are always breathtaking.
I went there with a friend during the Ripleys Believe it or Not exhibit. I honestly thought it would be tailored towards younger kids but there are many different aspects and attractions for people of all ages. Certain areas are for kids primarily but all in all it was a great experience. The views of the water and downtown are amazing from just outside the front doors.
Do you have kids? Were you once a kid? Heck, are you human? If so, you'll love this place. They have great exhibits for adults and kids alike. As long as you don't tell your kids it is more educational than school, they'll love it too!
This museum is perfect for children and families, but teenagers can also enjoy it without any doubt. It's fun and educative, everyone can learn, even adults. From recycling to human body, the topics spread all over human knowledge and stations are interactive and sometimes digital. Overall I recommend it because it's a pleasant destination during boring weekends: the family ticket is very convenient.
Bullet points: * This place is awesome * Beat the crowds by going at opening * Bring your lunch * If you're a teacher in BC, you get in twice for free I just recently went to Science World for the first time in twenty years and I enjoyed it. We brought our 2.5 year old and he had a blast too! Lots of cool things to look at. More importantly, there are really great hands-on exhibits. Come early to beat the crowds. We went during spring break and it got busy a little before lunch. I can't speak for the weekends. Save some money and bring a lunch. There is a Triple O's on the ground floor and a little concession stand on the second floor but the food is overpriced. There are some places that you can plop yourself to have a little picnic. If you're a teacher, Science World has a Teacher Preview Program where you get two complementary admissions within a calendar year. It's a great opportunity to see what resources are available for the classroom. Recommended!
Went here all the time as a kid. The staff is kind, courteous and well informed. I watched Dunkirk in omnimax and it was a great viewing experience. They gave free popcorn. The only issue I had was that we had to take an elevator to get to the auditorium as the stairs were off limits as another function was taking place. This resulted in a really long line which totally sucked. Also, parking I. The parking lot will set you back significantly.
When I first went here I was thinking it was too expensive, but after being inside I think it is a hundred percent worth it. All staff members I encountered were courteous, friendly, and helpful. They have so many interactive features, I could be spent all day there. They had Ripley's Believe it or Not as the feature exhibit. It was cool. My son loved playing with the water features. 5/7 Will for sure go back. Also would be fun without kids.
Did a work placement here for 3 weeks. All staff truly enjoy working with the public and take all your comments into consideration. Everyone tries their absolute best to keep the place friendly, welcoming, safe and fun! Go visit, its best to go with an open and curious mind!
easily accessible. great place to kill time especially with the kids and even adults. prices are a bit much and not much staff interactions. would be nice to have more staff interactions to make the experience much more fun! and great scenery around. due to price, and not much upgrade. it is those place you would want to go once every two years or something
Love coming here with my family. Lots to see, lots to do. Have our membership and will come back time and time again. Love the newer kids section, my kids play there for hours and hours. Also, quite enjoy the gift shop. Keep changing up the exhibits and we will continue to come back, thanks Science World!
A wonderful place for kids and adults alike. Lots of little brain teaser to work on. Lots of models explaining concepts to kids in a easy to visualize way. Definitely worth visiting. We planned for 3 hours initially but ended up spending much more time.
The baby play area is incredible. The kid event presentations (I saw the “air” one) was very interesting, even for adults. Great place for kids. Warning: Line ups to get in if you don’t have membership are long. Come early.
Love coming here. Kids have a great time. It does get busy after lunch, recommend coming in the morning. Check out the shows at center stage and definitely check out the ken Spencer park outside - there are even shows outside too. If you have kids 8 and under, definitely worth getting a membership. As for parking, there is street parking available - along Main Street or smaller streets (national). But the ones on the bigger streets have a 2 hour limit.
If you have kids, bring them here. If you are a big kid, take yourself there. There are plenty of games to tease the mind, arrays of exhibitions to awe the thoughts, tonnes of activities to test the skills and to learn new knowledge. Good rotations of educational movies to enjoy when the body is exhausted. All walk of life and all ages will find this place exciting. Extra Note: A great place to bring a date. ;)
Great place to spend a day with kids. There is lots of activities and things to explore. Multiple times a day there is a show on the main floor for chemistry, physics or illusion. The teachers are good at capture the kids attention. There is fast food on location that is decent so you don't have to leave, but you can leave and come back at will.
Great place for all ages. Even adults can enjoy and learn something new. The place can make you feel like a kid again while teaching you a ton. We enjoyed the outdoor part that talked about our city and where we live since it felt most relevant. Pixar was the rotating unique exhibit this time which was pretty interesting. Maybe plan to bring your own food since it's a bit pricey in there.
Science World is always a super fun experience with great exhibits. This latest time I visited during a Science World After Dark event (adults only!). The Pixar exhibit was on and it was great! I also loved the rest of the exhibits and actually getting to test them out with out kids around. I was also very impressed with the Body Works exhibit which was surprisingly informative and geared towards positive body image, gender identity, sexuality and genetics. I'm looking forward to the next evening event!
We loved science this visit! No complaints! Plenty of space to move around even when it's crazy busy. Easy to have even a double stroller with you walking around to see everything. Only thing that changed since my last visit was the 0-5 area. They have some pretty amazing stuff there now but...its so hard to see where the kids are. It used to be a bigger space and you could see your kids from almost any spot and they had a gate where kids could only exit with an adult which I loved! I love the upgraded area but wish it had better visibility and a gate again. ,
This place is incredible, not just for kids, but also for adults. It explains what happens on earth where we are standing. Many mechanical structure to show us how thing works. For kids, they can learn so many things by visiting this museum. There are also free playground outside the museum. The parking space is abundant but pricey. Burger restaurant can be found inside. Hope my photos explain the rest. Enjoy.
Always a great place for my 2 boys! They have always enjoyed returning here to see the standard displays but we keep coming back for the special exhibits. We saw the Pixar exhibit this time and my wife and u really enjoyed it. My sons, 6 and 4, were not as enthusiastic! I would estimate a good age to be over 10 but every child is different
