Science World

Science World is a science centre run by a not-for-profit organization called ASTC Science World Society in Vancouver, British Columbia. It is located at the end of the False Creek and features many permanent interactive exhibits and displays, as well as areas with varying topics throughout the years.

Prior to the building being handed over to Science World by the city government in 1987, the building was built as Expo Centre for the Expo 86 world's fair. Following the end of Expo 86, the building was re-purposed as a science centre. The science centre opened on May 6th, 1989 as Science World. From 2005 to 2020, the museum was branded as Science World at Telus World of Science, before it reverted back to its original name.
