Vancouver Science World Reviews

Vancouver Science World

Review of the Vancouver's Science World
We arrived about noon, and stayed until they closed at 5 (with a brief detour for lunch - they stamp your hands for in-and-out privileges). We could have stayed much longer.

The first floor has enough to keep you occupied for a LONG time. Many puzzles and exhibits. I was truly amazed that the little pieces of the various puzzles didn't "walk away" - whether intentionally or not... nothing is chained down in any way.

We spent so much time on the first floor that we didn't even realize that most of the museum is really upstairs! Had to rush through that part.

The only part I would bypass is the natural history room - a few live and stuffed animals, but nothing to "write home about".

Review of the Vancouver's Science World
I think more than half of this place was currently under renovation when we visited. However, the silver dome thing was too irresistible to miss.

The exhibit being shown was Body Worlds. I saw Bodies The Exhibition when it came to Seattle so I knew what to expect. Body Worlds was smaller but interesting. It makes you think and I felt a bit exhausted after emerging from it. The kids seemed to have fun running around and I will mention that they have a giant cheeseburger in the play area. It's random.

We ate at the only food joint inside, Triple O's, which is Canadian fast food. It served its purpose but giving us sustenance but the highlight has to have been the poutine. It's fast food fries slopped with gravy and cheese curds. Why can't America have that?? I ask you.

Review of the Vancouver's Science World
We just wanted to see the IMAX movie dealing with the inner workings of the human body; therefore we were pleased they knocked down the museum price, considering most of it was under construction, and therefore inaccessible. We weren't please by the attitude we encountered when we didn't want to pay the up charge to see the Bodies exhibit. You needn't ask us three times
Great IMAX theatre...the dome shape gives you the feeling that you are IN the movie. Nice touch.
