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.
