What to do when your boyfriend is working and you're left in charge of his children? And your friend comes from Abbotsford with her kid? Right, Science World! Rainy day.. perfect idea right? WRONG. How awful of them to charge you full price when most of the 'exhibits' and areas are closed. Oh let's pay for the kids to play in Kidspace?? And the Dino exhibit? Cool looking dino's, but small and lame exhibit. So disappointed. In fact, I hope someone from Science World reads this. $57.00 for 2 kids and I. I could have, like, bought shoes! I wish I could get my money back. They should close it down until everything is opened properly, because I just can't fathom spending that amount of money again. Lame, Science ...
Some things to know about me before reading on: I don't have small children and have been extremely spoiled in my life, living near one of the better science museums in the world. This place looks impressive from the outside, but upon entering the building my first impression was "Hmmm, not quite sure what the big deal is." To be fair, it was undergoing major renovations so it may be a lot better once the renovations are complete. There are lots of hands-on activities for children here, but from an adult's perspective they seemed fairly outdated and some of them were even confusing to me (what does that say about me?). The few that seemed pretty captivating had swarms of kids all over them, of course. I w...
What's the first thing you do when you are turned loose in Vancouver? The answer - go to Science World. Ok, maybe not, but this was kind of a fun diversion. This was a quick jaunt from our hotel room and we went here (with everyone else) on a Saturday morning. They have a real interesting dinosaur exhibit and they have controls to let kids control the movements of the large dinosaurs. I noticed this was quite hit most of the kids. They have an Imax theatre there as well. There are also many puzzles for kids to figure out. Lots of mathematical problems for them to solve. All in all for those of you that live in the Portland, Oregon area, the Oregon Museum of Science Industry has it over this place but ...
Eh. Meh. I've been many a time, however, today I was pretty disappointed. I don't remember the aquarium being so...well...lame? There was some games and puzzles which were ok. The dinosaur display was also "ok" (albeit somewhat disappointing). The Body Works room was seriously lacking. And the theater was playing Planet Earth (which I have at...
We all received a discount since the center was being renovated so the 3rd floor is closed. However, the place is very spread out. I got to try some interesting exhibits like aging your face 20 years or so. Downright scary.... Then I checked out the symetry of my face. Images were doubled on each side. My right side doubled resembled primitive cave woman. My left side doubled looked like something out of Avatar! Around 3 pmish, there were hordes of school aged children pouring in, so we left in time. Be sure to check out the IMAX theatre. We missed the only showing but caught another freebie flick on natural disasters. There's a cute area for toddlers to play in and whole section on parasites. Nice ...
