Where are we going today?
Science and technology IS fun, and when you visit a place like Science World, you can see why!
Science World is all about giving kids and parents a day out filled with hands-on and interactive exhibits, that teach you all about science and technology - and they make it FUN!
The centre is filled with exhibits, programs and events that cover a range of topics that help you understand all about these two important subjects.
You can explore BodyWorks, where you can see your own face at 70 years old, or power a drum with your very own heartbeat! In Eureka, you can experiment with light, water, motion and sound, and have fun with experiences such as launching a parachute, or capturing your very own shadow!
Kidspace is where those younger curious minds can visit, as there are kiddie sized explorations to be had. The space is perfect for those aged 1 to 6 years old, and parents can get in and work with them too, so it really can be a family experience.
Puzzles and illusions line the gallery wall to really play with your minds! Straight lines look like curves, and still pictures move! It really lets kids really see how powerful the brain is!
Science World hold fun events and programs across the year too, so make sure you check those out! There are Adult Events after dark where you can crack codes and solve mysteries, and kids can take part in robotics clubs, science camps, and preschool curiosity clubs!

Amazing place. We are members of Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS) and so entry was free and we had the same privileges as the members (discounted tickets etc.). I did not have my membership card but was able to show an email that showed we were members. We love DMNS but the kids (10 and 13) said Science World is better because it is much more interactive. The first exhibit on the right after the reception is amazing. It provides very useful information about our ecological footprint and also has some interactive activities. It even has...Read More

Personally I think the exhibits at the Exploratorium or Boston's Museum of Science are a bit better, but those places are also more expensive. Science World was not crowded at all when we went (in fact it seemed a bit empty) which meant no waiting in line for any of the exhibits.
We spent a very pleasant four hours here with my 14-year-old daughter on a hot August night, and we were grateful for the air conditioning. If you can, go on Thursday night when they are open late.

I did not have my membership card but was able to show an email that showed we were members. We love DMNS but the kids (10 and 13) said Science World is better because it is much more interactive. The first exhibit on the right after the reception is amazing. It provides very useful information about our ecological footprint and also has some interactive activities. It even has a board where one can provide suggestions about the topic at hand. When we were there, the topic was: 'What can humans do to reduce our ecological footprint'. Then in the main atrium they have a lot of interactive puzzles and exercises. They also have a stage show where someone showcases various science experiments and also talks about genesis of various scientific breakthroughs. There are movies that you can pay and there are some you can watch free in the auditorium. We were there for 5 hours but could definitely have spent whole day there. Will definitely visit it when we visit Vancouver again.
