Vancouver's Science World, otherwise known as the Telus World of Science is a popular attraction throughout the year. With hundreds of activities for children and adults, science and fun are intermingled. Whether watching the live demonstrations or an OMNIMAX movie, touching dinosaur bones or experimenting, there is no shortage of fun activities in this scientific playground. Located at the end of False Creek, Science World is easy to find and is the perfect any day activity that will occupy anyone for hours.

Composed of a distinctive sphere perched on a base and located at the end of the False Creek waterway, the TELUS World of Science is a place for all ages which encompasses an OMNIMAX theatre, live shows and both permanent and temporary exhibits which focus on scientific, environmental and educational activities and displays.

Built in the late 70's to house hands on exhibits and later acquired by the government in the 80's in preparation for the 1986 World Expo, Science World saw a number of changes including the addition of its crowing glory, the geodesic dome which shines brightly in the night at the edge of False Creek.

Visitors can watch (and participate!) in live science shows as well as enjoy hands-on exhibits which create a sense of wonderment for all who experience this interactive playground. The adjoining 400 seat OMNIMAX Theatre shows a wide range interesting films ranging from Dinosaurs to the world in the ocean. There is also a restaurant for visitors.

Science World's fun doesn't end at closing time, many adult-themed galas, events and movies are hosted at this unique location which lights up the Vancouver night sky.
