  • The Telus works of science is always fun. Especially if they have a good exhibit, keep an eye out. Not sure about during Covid. But I frequented before.  more »

  • Hands down the best place to bring kids for a few hours a week. Tons of fun, interactive exhibits. Great cafeteria with reasonable prices and good sized portions. The new space gallery is great. The new planetarium is amazing, my kiddo and I love laying down on the big bean bags and touring the galaxy. The rotating exhibits keep things fresh, especially when they're free admission exhibits. You have to work around the school classes, especially in the kids area (the new one seems like it'll be bigger thankfully). If you're allergic to loud, excited children then you might want to stick to early mornings or the adult-only Dark Matters nights. If you have kids, or want to recapture that feeling you had when you were a loud, excited child visiting the Space and Science Centre on a school trip, this is a definite recommend. And it has free parking! A GIANT free parking lot full of deliciously free parking. Freeeeeee!! (Apologies, I'm experiencing residual trauma from my visit to the new museum) .... free parking
  • Very educational experience for the whole family or just with friends. I love that the exhibits are interactive. This interactivity helps you to learn and retain. Fun facts about the planets and your body. Great indoor activity especially in our long winter months.
