When we arrived there were several field trips in progress, but they cleared out and it became much quieter. The displays were clearly geared toward a younger audience. But we thoroughly enjoyed the imax theatre and the observatory

We visited TELUS World of Science as two adult couples, and had a good afternoon. There are many exhibits and hands on activities. Despite being adults, we found many of the exhibits interesting and insightful. We were very pleased to see that there are certainly activities making the attraction fun for all ages. We spent an afternoon here, and could... More

I love the rotating special events that the Telus World of Science has. It's a great place to take families and school groups. The IMAX theater always has a selection of interesting shows to view. The gift shop is fun, the cafeteria style eating area has basic foods if you need something to eat, but I would suggest a picnic... More

A friend, our three year olds and myself spend a the afternoon and they both fell asleep in the car on the way home! The science center offers a lot of fun for the young and open minds, although we did not do the major exibit due to it being really crowded and the teller advising us that for such... More

Took the family for the Angry Birds exhibit and they found it boring (ages 5-14). They checked it out and lasted about 20 minutes before wanting to move on to the rest of the exhibits which they spent significantly more time in. As a parent, I was disappointed in the Angry Birds store... seems like there was more effort spent... More

This centre did not let us down! We have gone several times through the years and everytime we go our kids loved it - from the time they were in the range of 10 years to older teens the last time. We always have fun and take infomation away.

This place had great exhibits, friendly staff, and even a nice food court. The newer exhibits about Canadian research are really cool but they are kind of hidden away upstairs.

This is a very cool museum for young kids- it's not too big that you don't get to see everything and it's very informative. I was impressed with this young lady that my son asked a question of - she didn't know the answer off the top of her head but she say she would find out and she did!... More
