Step inside a giant laboratory, embark on an Arctic adventure, learn to program a robot and explore the limits of outer space when you visit TELUS World of Science – Edmonton. With fun and exciting permanent exhibit galleries to explore (as well as featured exhibits on rotation), there is something for the whole family to discover. The centre has also recently undergone a massive renovation - meaning there's even more to see and do!
Visitors can explore the new Health Zone. Here, guests will be placed at the centre of their own health stories. Through hands-on experiences and experiments they can test their flexibility and leg power, plus see and hear their heartbeat, look at their own veins or grab a lab coat and do a DNA extraction in the LAB (Learning about Biology). Enter the new Arctic Journey where you are not simply reading about the Arctic, you are feeling it. Ride an interactive dogsled across a frozen tundra. Explore and build an indoor igloo and see an inuksuk and marvel at its cultural significance.
The Science Centre also offers Indigenous Experiences which connects Indigenous way of knowing with contemporary science. The Indigenous Traditional Room is a welcoming place for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to gather. It features local Indigenous artwork, ceremonial drums, blankets, and sacred medicines. The Northern Lights Indigenous Cultural Space is a space for you to learn about the Indigenous culture through daily hands-on crafts and teachings. In the Zeidler Dome you can embark on a journey with the Indigenous peoples of the Western plains of Canada and share in this wisdom conveyed by the stars by watching Legends of the Northern Sky show.
Get hands on inside The Science Garage, as you flex your creative muscles to design, build and create! Next, CuriousCITY is a tactile adventure for children 6-years-old and younger. They will have fun and learn through activity and role play, as they crawl through the River Valley to discover fossils and get to know local animals, or climb the Fort Edmonton Park tree house to examine pelts and pretend to prepare a meal. Children’s imaginations will kick into overdrive when they pilot the EIA Airplane or command the YEG Control Tower. They will be delighted as they splash around at a Water Exploration Zone or explore several iconic Edmonton landmarks and attractions, such as the Muttart Conservatory, the Queen Elizabeth Planetarium, and the High Level Bridge.
The adventure continues when you step inside the S.P.A.C.E. Gallery and interact with exciting exhibits, from firing rockets and driving a Mars rover, to laying eyes upon a real-life Moon rock.
