I went with a friend and her small child and all three of us had a great time. Its very interactive, spaced out enough to get around and very easy to read and informative information for all the displays. There is a small area for children under 6 to play which was great.

Went back to this attraction with my grown son and we both enjoyed the kids games and the adult exhibit. I can't wait for the grandchildren to be old enough to try the games and enjoy the show. My son and I were fascinated by the travelling exhibit on Quantum Mechanics and are both a bit closer to understanding the... More

We took our 3 year old grandson and had a great time. There was lots to keep him engaged and excited. Great fun for all. 3 hours including lunch is about the max a 3 year old can handle and so we left. The bonus for our grandson was to come and go to Science World on the Skytrain. This... More

This is a fun place to take the kids in between other sightseeing. First off the place feels isolated from other attractions in the city. The parking feels sketchy as it's under the metro tracks and extremely limited. The whole building can be experienced in about 3-4 hours including the Imax movie. Definitely do not miss that. Many of the... More

My young daughter was absolutely enthralled here - there are so many sections to explore, interactive experiments to participate in and a world of discovery to enjoy. We were there for over 5 hours and she was so busy having fun we both forgot to have lunch until 4pm. It is probably better than Questacon in Canberra - by a... More

My boyfriend and I are both from BC and I was surprised to learn that he hadn't been to Science world before so I took him there on his birthday. The cost was expensive but I figured it would be worth the experience. The environment was full of young children. There were no visible hand washing or hand sanitizer available... More

Was ok but have been to others that i found a bit more interesting. Interactive stuff was fun, little pricey to attend though.

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.
