photo: Science World

Welcome to Inside Vancouver’s new “Featured Attraction” series. Each Monday we’ll be featuring a different Vancouver attraction, and will be giving away free tickets to our readers. To be eligible you just need to post a comment.

Science World is one of Vancouver’s most popular family destinations. Kids of all ages (up to 102!) can experience all sorts of educational and fun activities, such as playing arcade-style games to learn about human life sciences, viewing a live performance at the Peter Brown Family Centre Stage, and hanging out with some wild and crazy reptiles in the Extreme Dinosaur Gallery.

Science World’s facility has just completed a $35-million renovation and is now fully open to the public. The renovation added 30,000 square feet of space, a green roof, and many energy‐efficient initiatives—not to mention more hands-on exhibits.

Both the 11,000 square-foot Eureka! Gallery and the facility’s new green roof provide incredible views of False Creek and can be rented for special events.
View Science World’s lipdub video and take a lively tour of the renovated facility.

  102. E.

    They say that if one can learn at least one new thing every day then one would be so much smarter.Science World with so much knowledge to share and hands on to offer could produce many more smarter people. One is never too old to learn and if I win the pair of tickets,I would love to take my father or (who has never been there) uncle ( in their late 70’s) for an educational and fun time there..one never has enough fun,right?

  132. Nasheena

    As a child, science was never my forte in school, however science world was always my favorite place to visit. I think my parents tricked me into learning, but it’s hard not to at such a fun place (whether you know you’re learning or not). Looking forward to going again!

  133. laura

    my 4 year old is SOinto dinosaurs right now it would mean a lot to come to the exhibit. as born and raised vancouverites forced out of our community by a skyrocketed real estate market; having 4 children due to a blended family makes everything too expensive. i came to science world as a child during expo 86 and i will never forget how special that was. we would love to come and two free passes would make a huge difference in affordability for our large family. thanks!
