Science World at TELUS World of Science
Set at the eastern edge of False Creek, Science World’s geodesic dome—originally built for Expo 86—is an icon of the Vancouver cityscape. Experience its wide range of curiosity-igniting exhibits that cover topics ranging from the human body to sustainability, as well as an OMNIMAX® dome movie theater and live science demonstrations.

The Basics
Visit Science World at Telus World of Science to get hands on with science at the permanent galleries with exhibits on the body, physics, and illusions and to watch live science shows—topics include balloons, bubbles, and fire—at the Peter Brown Family Centre Stage. Science World is sometimes visited as part of family-oriented tours of Vancouver. Hop-on hop-off bus tours also stop here, while bike tours often follow the seawall path, passing by the eye-catching dome. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Science World is a must for families. 
  • The attraction is wheelchair-accessible.
  • OMNIMAX® theater shows and the virtual reality Birdly® ride come at an additional cost.
  • Sensory maps and a limited number of noise-cancelling earmuffs are available at Science World, which also hosts sensory-friendly mornings for visitors with autism or sensory processing differences. 

How to Get There
Science World is situated along the False Creek Seawall walking and biking path, about 1.2 miles (2 kilometers), or a five-minute drive, from downtown Vancouver. To get there by public transit, ride the SkyTrain to Main Street-Science World station. The Aquabus and False Creek Ferries also stop nearby.

When to Get There
Science World sees the most visitors on weekends and over school vacations with afternoons (about 12pm–4pm) attracting the largest crowds. If you’re looking for a little more elbow room, go on a midweek morning during term time. For some child-free exploring, attend one of the adult-only After Dark events, where you can explore the hands-on exhibits, sip drinks, and listen to live talks or music performances. 

The Wonder Gallery
Even the youngest visitors to Vancouver can enjoy Science World at the Wonder Gallery, specifically designed for those aged 0–5. Those 18 months and under can explore the Crawl space on all fours, exploring the textures, buttons, mirrors, and hovering and spinning objects within their reach. The Experiment area allows preschoolers to take part in simple child-driven explorations, pretend play, and staff-led experiments, while the Splash area features a water table with jets, buckets, and funnels.
