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.

Great for toddlers and up. Hours of activities and fun. Weekends are understandably busy but still a lot of fun. Weekdays are great if you can do it. Much less people there. You can buy food inside or pack snacks to bring in.

Great place. Went with a couple of friends and we were completely blown away. I didn't grow up in Vancouver (or North America, for that matter) and we never had anything like that back home. Which is a shame, one's interest in STEM and surroundings should be encouraged from early age and Science World does an excellent job in that. It's definitely more suited for kids, but most adults will find it interesting nonetheless! They also have a cute little bookshop worth checking out and a massive theatre.

Science World is Not For Profit organization that specializes in the education of the public on Scientific topics. They have several permanent galleries as well as a rotating gallery that changes every few months. The staff are cheerful and happy to have discussions with you. They also have "Science Shows" nearly every hour when they're open. I recommend the Electricity Show!
