ComeBack to Discovery with Science World and TransLink

Kids and kids-at-heart rejoice! At long last, our beloved Science World is once again opening its doors unto a giant silver ball of learning, wonderment and boundless curiosity. And with a carefully thought out program in response to COVID-19, TransLink is ready to get the whole family there safe and sound for a full day of discovery.

 As Science World welcomes visitors back, there will be a few changes to protocol to keep families and staff and volunteers alike safe and healthy. Visitors can book their tickets online in advance for an entrance time or choose to purchase walk-up tickets (subject to capacity), after which they can expect to spend up to 3 hours exploring brand new exhibits, as well as old favourites.

 One of the exciting new features is the Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks in which 20 of the world’s most astonishing skyscrapers from all over the world are built up with intricate detail and accuracy with everyone’s favourite plastic blocks. There’s even TransLink’s very own MicroCity 2050, a 3D animated model that incorporates light, narration and sound to tell the story of Metro Vancouver’s transportation system, past, present and future.

 And TransLink is the perfect way to get to Science World! It’s front doors are a quick 5 minute walk from the Main Street-Science World SkyTrain station that shares its name.

 Avoiding parking hassles is just the first way TransLink can take one more thing off your plate for a family outing, thanks to their newly launched SOAP program. Standing for Safe Operating Action Plan, SOAP ensures that transit riders and employees alike can feel safe and respected while using transit. Increased cleaning schedules, active “Pit Crews” to disinfect high traffic trains and stations, as well as new physical distancing measures, are a few of the changes TransLink customers can expect to see while moving about the city.

 Science World isn’t the only family-friendly Vancouver attraction you can visit on TransLink this summer. After your inner Bill Nye gets his fix, indulge your David Attenborough with a trip to the Vancouver Aquarium in the heart of Stanley Park. Get your heart rate soaring at FlyOver Canada, or take a peaceful stroll through VanDusen Garden and the Bloedel Conservatory – all easily and quickly accessible with TransLink.
