"Science World" Science World Tip by esnVancouver

Science World, Vancouver: 18 reviews and 30 photos


Science World is the perfect family trip. It's absoutley great for kids. If you don't have kids though, you may want to skip it. Going back as an adult, it just wasn't the same as when I was a young lad. Once in awhile though there are some excellect special exhibits which are great for all ages. Once they had a very interesting exhibit on ancient China.

I cannot stress enough how much fun it is for kids though, as they can play, interact and learn from all of the great displays there as well.

Science World also houses the OmniMax Theatre, which is a like any Imax theatres you may have been to. Unlike those though, this screen wraps around on a slight curve and "seems" bigger than Imax screens. If you get sick from Imax like realism, you may want to skip it. If not, defiantley check it out.

Address: 1455 Quebec Street
Directions: Near Main Street, just outside the downtown core. It is a short walk away from the Main St. / Science World skytrain station.
