Science World Vancouver.

Where is Science World & the OMNIMAX Theatre?

Science World and the OMNIMAX Theatre are located at 1455 Quebec Street, south of Chinatown and on the eastern end of False Creek.

You can get here very easily from central downtown on the SkyTrain; just get off at the Main Street/Science World station.

Science World is easily recognizable as it’s situated within the giant silver golf ball (in fact it’s a geodesic dome!) which you can see from various points around the city.

  3. Illusions is a fun look at optical illusions and effects.
  4. Kidspace is designed for younger children aged 2 to 6, where they can interact, learn and play using water, light, color and movement.
  5. Our World is a gallery for all ages which looks at the way I which we operate in a sustainable society and how we can find solutions and makes changes for a better future.
  6. Search takes you inside nature in a way you will never have experienced before! Here you can crawl through a real beavers lodge, enter an 800 year old Western Red Cedar and look inside a working bee hive.
