I came here for an evening Conference/Mixer. There is a room on the secco door level that is rented out for other groups. The space is pretty big with a projector and sound system. It sat 100 people easily. There is always room for more but the event was smaller. Alcohol is available at a cash bar and there was... More

A neat place to visit, but not all that affordable for the average family. Food court was recently redone, and the set up is poor! Over crowded, and not amenable to a good traffic flow. The IMAX is great, but there is usuallt not a lot of variety, and the show times are pretty limited.

We are annual pass holders (highly recommend it if you plan to go more than a few times a year!) and we go here every few weekends with our young kids. There's a lot for them to do and explore, and they especially love the kids' discovery area (for under 8 year olds). Some of the galleries have been around... More

The Telus world of science is always a great stop in Edmonton. There is always a new exhibition here and some great presentations that are always meant to be fun and informative. I would recommend Telus world of science to any age or group. Great place for a date too (if your into that kind of thing :) You can... More

Lots of things here for children to see. I went without children and didnt have time to go through the whole exhibit. Did not like getting charged for a day pass when stopping in an hour before closing but I guess thats business and not their fault. Lots of interactive exhibits for children

I have been many times. With little kids, adults as well as persons with disabilities and every one of them enjoyed it. The imax was really good. The 3d though if you're prone to motion sickness you may wanna skip it. The star room is cool but wasn't entertaining enough and too dark for my 4 year old. We always... More

There was really something for everyone and I liked that they had little "Science Shows" on the hour. Helps breaks things up. I liked the variety of activities..some maybe not so much...For some reason I can't say I was really WOWED! Would I go again, probably not. Once you've done all the activities once..hard to keep doing the same thing... More

Go to the Imax theater, play with the interactive machines, take a walk through wild life exhibits or study the skies. Everything for all 'explorers' is there for your enjoyment. To be sure of your complete enjoyment, inquire beforehand as to what is showing on IMax, or what is being presented in the exhibition hall, as these do change periodically.... More

Thanks for your review! And glad to her you had such a wonderful experience at TELUS World of Science - Edmonton. Our IMAX films and exhibits do change... so great for return visits. We just announced our next exhibition that starts July 1, The Science Behind Pixar. Definitely will be one not to miss! Sincerely, Ursula Phillips More
