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.

Telus Science World Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Nice place to learn mostly for kids. Not much for adults. The dinosaur display and human body section are must see. Geology section is interesting as well. There is a small restaurant on level 1 and a cafe on level 2. Clean restrooms and accessible paths on all levels. Staff are very courteous and answer questions with patience. Worth a stop if around. Paid parking available outside but fills up quickly. Recommend public transport.

3 Star Rating The place was too basic than we imagine from its look and vibe. I spent nearly $35 for a ticket and there wasn’t much to see as an adult. It was overloaded with kids and had basic to intermediate science technologies which we already know or the ones that don’t trick our mind. I have visited a much better and advanced science world in my home country. I think it’s better if they post it outside that it’s for kids so that another people like me don’t waste time and money there =(
