Science World at Telus World of Science, Vancouver Canada
Its spherical architectural design makes Science World one of the most iconic landmarks in Vancouver. Built for Expo 86, Science World lets you immerse yourself in hands-on interactive exhibits, hourly live demonstrations and stimulating games. Enjoy mental puzzles and illusions that test your creativity and logic. Be amazed by exhibits that come alive with the physics of water, light and sound. And if you think it’s just for kids – think again. Science World entertains all ages with mind-bending exhibits, including Bodies, LEGO, and The Science of Sexuality to name a few.
At the upper section of the dome, is the OMNIMAX theatre where you can watch films on a giant screen that arches overhead. As Western Canada’s largest giant-screen theatre, spectators are enveloped in visual and audio mastery.
The Kidspace area of Science World, designed specifically for children aged 1 to 6 years, is a mesmerizing world of play that explores four themes – water, light, colour and movement.
Outside, the Ken Spencer Science Park features local artists, live performances, and educational experiences that connect you to the local environment and offer insight into the sustainability choices you make about transportation, energy, water, food, waste and housing.
New exhibitions are introduced every few months, so you’ll always get a unique experience at Science World.
Situated in False Creek, Science World overlooks the water and is a must-see destination for both tourists and locals. If you are staying downtown at the Auberge Hotel, getting there is easy. Take transit! The Main Street SkyTrain Street Station is across the street from Science World.
