This is a wonderful place to bring the children and grandchildren. They can learn a lot while having fun and when temperatures are sub-zero, it is a good place for the kids (and adults) to let off some steam. Consider a Family Pass if you are a grandparent wondering what to give the kids for Christmas. There is considerable saving... More

I was excited to bring my kids to the Telus world of science for a treat! We had a gift card and for a family of four it still came to $100. We wandered around, it was as if nothing had changed in twenty years, OLD technologies and half the time my kids went to try something it wasn't working.... More

My kids love this and I have teenagers and small kids. There is a free star theatre that has a very large dome roof with reclining chairs that the kids think is so cool. They always have various displays and exhibits that change from time to time, we've been to many including the Harry Potter exhibit which featured real props... More

I wasn't excited about going here with my sister's family during their visit. But WOW! They had the Sherlock Holmes exhibit and we had SO MUCH FUN! The puzzles were fun too and the kids (12 & 13) had a blast. We had only intended to stay for the morning but we ended up being there most of the afternoon... More

We took our granddaughter to the Angry Birds exhibit. The computer animation section wasn't operating correctly, the lines ups for the interactive sling shot and zip lines were long and slow due to the inadequate staffing in setting up and helping children through the activities. My granddaughter declared "I'm bored" after about an hour, most of that time standing in... More

Nephews loved it every time they visit me in Edmonton. I missed out on the Sherlock Holmes exhibit! A bit of everything (interactive/static displays). Went one time to watch classic movies, I missed those days from HS wherein we go see a documentary about science really. Excellent place to spend the day with kids in tow!

As always the IMAX movie was great and I can not wait to be able to purchase it, however the staff here are incredibly rude and don't have anything together. There was only one bag of popcorn at the one concession and had burnt pieces in it so I went the the one upfront by the ticket sales. That location... More

I went with my 6 year old grandson on October 22, 2016. He wanted to go here because his school had taken him for a field trip. He wanted to program a robot, one of the activities there. It was very fun learning to program the robot the staff was helpful and very nice. There was lots to see and... More

My family and I visited when we arrived in Edmonton. It's a nice museum, with lots to see. I think it's better for older kids (my daughter is 5), and it would be nice to have some more exhibits/activities for younger kids.
