Science World Vancouver, properly called Telus World of Science, due to its corporate sponsorship, is located in a large and striking geodesic dome over looking the east end of False Creek that has become a major city landmark.
The striking dome was originally the Expo Centre building during the Expo 86 World's Fair in Vancouver. It is easily accessed by Vancouver public transit from the Main Street - Science World SkyTrain Station.
This popular venue offers families a wide range of both permanent and changing interactive and educational science exhibits along with a variety of fascinating shows in the OMNIMAX theatre.
You can travel from Telus World of Science to Granville Island and Yaletown with either of two privately operated passenger ferry services; False Creek Ferries or Aquabus that link various points around False Creek. As these are not part of the Public Transit system additional fares apply, however, they are not expensive.

If you're looking for a place to bring out the inner child, or just to bring your children to, this is it. Lots of interactive exhibits that are just as fun for families as they are for first dates. Tip: Take a Water Taxi from here to Granville Island to make this a full day adventure (and save the ~2km walk).

Always love coming here. The science never gets old, the staff are always entertaining, and time seems to speed up inside the ball. There's only a triple O's in the building for food, so keep that in mind if you're planning to eat there. The burgers Are great and the fries are amazing.

Have been volunteering for the past three years here and absolutely love it! My parents paid for a membership with my little sister and they visit here almost every weekend. It's such a beautiful and welcoming place--why would anyone want to leave? Great things for both adults who want to explore science and younger kids.

As a lifetime resident of Vancouver, this has always been one of my favorite places to visit since I was a kid. Science World is very much family-oriented, and has a lot of fun, educational exhibits. The rotating exhibitions are also fantastic; some of my favorites included LEGO, dinosaurs, and Body Works. It's also very convenient to reach via transit, since it's right next to Main Street Skytrain station. Definitely a must-see for families living in Vancouver.
