Visited Vancouver during their first snowstorm of the season. Took a break from the snow by spending the day at Science World. Very entertaining and fun!

Spent several hours in Science World with family. We were a group of seniors, 30somethings and two toddlers, age 3 and 5. There was definitely something for everyone and we all enjoyed ourselves equally. There are so many hands-on activities, live shows, movies and physical movement areas that no one was bored and, in fact, three hours only left us... More

As a bit of a science nerd I really wanted to like it, but unfortunately every single thing seemed to be geared to children. That's fine, just wish it was perhaps made clearer it's a kids attraction. I also watched the IMAX film Voyage of Time, and visually it was great but contained the sum total of zero facts or... More

Took my grandchildren 7 & 5 to Science World to keep them out of their mother's way in the run up to Christmas. What a great place! It manages to engage people of all ages with it's exhibits and hands-on activities. Granted the younger audience like my grandson seem to be more engaged in sending sponge balls thru the pneumatic...

The really famous building is so cool from the outside, particularly at the sunset. As for the visit inside, try to plan it well: it seemed to me smaller than it really is, while it has a lot of interesting areas (especially puzzles and illusions, body works and some things inside eureka!) worth to be seen. They say it's more... More

What an amazing interactive place, with very much hands on activities for kids to do and big kids as well. The Imax thearter is well worth seeing while your there as well. It was very busy, but it was Christmas time. Allow a good couple of hours to really explore this place.

Great place to spend a lot of time at. Easily use up 4 hours or more. Fun for toddlers, small children right up to early teens. Lots of things to see and do and really hands on. Make sure you ask or get a program brochure for times and events taking place or you will miss out. Costs are extra... More

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.
