The Telus World of Science is a really fun interactive place to take your family in Edmonton. They have attractions and interactive educational activities that are geared to all age groups except maybe babies. I have visited it a number of times with my family and they always have had a good time. The center has attractions that change all... More

Telus World of Science is super cool! They have rotating features like Sherlock Holmes and really cool IMAX films. It's a bit pricey but we typically spend about 3-4 hours there and really enjoy it.

We often attend a show on Boxing Day. The Imax performance we saw was good but there were very few people in attendance. The cost per ticket is very high so it seems that people are choosing more reasonable activities to attend.

We went expecting to only do the Angry Birds exhibit but with the excellent info from the Customer service rep we decided to do an IMAX movie too and spent the entire day at the interactive and educational exhibits. My 3 and 6 year old sons loved the Angry birds exhibit, the IMAX movie held their attention, and loved being... More

Me and my 13 old son was interested in everything. All I want to touch it. Everything is so clear for children. Great movie theater and planetarium show interesting experiments. Children can learn a lot in this museum. Cool. It is better to come in the morning, less people and you can easily see everything. if you are without children,... More

The permanent exhibits are a ton of fun! All our kids (ages ranging from 15-1 year) love coming here. We even decided to become members. However, the recent Angry Birds exhibit was not worth the extra cost. There's a zip line (with really long lineups), life size slingshots (hard to shoot for younger kids), some car races, some computer art... More

This place is fairly expensive to get into and is not even nearly as exciting as the Ontario Science center. I would never go back. It did not take long to see everything in there and nothing seemed remarkable or exceptional. All in all it was boring and I felt I wasted my money.

This was an interesting way to spend an hour in the evening with a teen and a pre-teen. We all enjoyed this a lot. The equipment is from 1992 so there was a delay in getting the shoe started but this didn't detract from our experience.

We stopped in to see the Indiana Jones travelling display a few years ago and it was great so we stopped in again and the center is still fun with lots of displays to see and interact with. great for kids.

I have come here multiple times and left feeling disappointed. What they offer here is very bottom line in my taste. If you don't know much about science then it's a good stop but aside from that, it's just for kids.

Thank you for visiting TELUS World of Science and for offering your feedback, I am very sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. We do have a variety of exhibits and displays to cater to different age groups and education levels. Some of our more "science" focused offerings that may interest you might be a planetarium show...
