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.

We visited Science World on a Sunday and were absolutely blown away by the experience. There are so many amazing and informative scientific exhibits and activities for both kids and adults. We had a fantastic time exploring and learning. The staff were friendly and helpful, making our visit even more enjoyable. If you're looking for a fun and educational day out, Science World is the place to be!

Excellent place to learn the basics of science for adults. A must do activity with children as it is fun learning. It teaches children the basic science knowledge with so many fun activities. Shows are also fun to watch and participate. It is a whole day activity. Although discounted ticket after 5pm but o think 3 hours is not enough so starting early and spending the entire day in the museum is the best way to explore all the activities.

One of my favorite Science Museums in North America. Multiple floors and multiple science shows on the “Center Stage”. There are several exhibits that are rotated out every few months. This has a lot of great tactile exhibits which is great for hands on learning. There is an early morning opening for neurodiverse attendees that benefit from less people while exploring the museum. This museum is very close to the expo line and easy to get to. Buying tickets in advance is not required, though ensures entry and availability.

It is a lovely place to bring young kids. My son always finds something entertaining to do. We bought passes and come here 1-2 a month, and he still loves it. If you've never tried it and have young kids, they will have a blast. I would honestly buy the yearly pass for 1 adult and child if you plan on going more than once.
