We spent about 4 hours here on a rainy day. We were able to watch a few of the live demonstrations as well as an IMAX movie. The hands on exhibits were awesome! The kids liked every single thing here! We weren't sure if they would be bored, but we all had a great time!

Everything is hands on! Our 6 year old loved every moment, as did my husband and me. The shows that were put on at regular intervals were fun and engaging. The Body Works exhibit is closed right now (Nov 2016), which was a bit disappointing. However, we easily spent 6 hours at the museum.

We went there thinking there were things for adults to see - No. This is truly a place you go with children. Once we left, there was a beautiful walk along the seawall to downtown.

Ok I have travelled and whenever I travel I try to hit the local science centres - this one is kinda set up like a mini science north (Sudbury) but you could fit like 4-6 of this one in the Sudbury location and lets not compare it to Toronto - I found it funny that the space is in a... More

It is a nice spot for walking around and excellent spot for appreciating the downtown skyline, and in the inside you can find educational exhibitions for kids.

Science World is full of wonder for people of all ages. The building itself is spherical and located at the east end of False Creek near China Town. Sometimes there is a thematic exhibit, but it's always an interesting place to visit anytime. After your visit to Science World, you can enjoy walking around the water's edge to the Plaza... More

I didn't know what to expect when I went there. But soon found out it is a hands on children's science world. It really is not interesting for adults as it is basic science but the kids seem to have fun.

Lots of interesting stuff for the kids and adults. We were there mid week so had the place to ourselves. We got there mid afternoon and were not able to see the OmniMAX. As others have mentioned it is a bit pricey. Next time I would plan to go earlier to catch more of the shows.

Not cheap, but lots of stuff to do. Kids stay entertained for hours. A bit crazy and busy, but still very fun. I would recommend the OmniMAX. And unbelievable experience. Especially for kids.

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighbourhood Profile
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, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
