Step inside a giant laboratory and come face-to-face with small sea creatures, learn to program a robot and explore the limits of outer space when you visit TELUS World of Science – Edmonton. With five fun and exciting permanent exhibit galleries to explore, there is something for the whole family to discover.
Get hands on inside The Science Garage, as you flex your creative muscles to design, build and create! Put your five senses to the ultimate test in The Body Fantastic and learn about the inner-workings of the human body, brace yourselves for a hilariously good time at the Gallery of the Gross when you identify different smells, and test your knowledge of anatomy when you put together a life-size X-ray puzzle.
Next, meet Doc the Yellowfin Surgeonfish inside the Syncrude Environment Gallery and get hands-on with Touch Tank explorations, or create lightning and tornadoes when you learn about weather systems. CuriousCITY is a tactile adventure for children 8-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 all-new 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.
Plan your visit around DARK MATTERS 18+ events, where the science is served on the rocks & the adults come out to play. Music, a bar, exclusive access to all of the permanent galleries and grown-up science experiments are just a few of the highlights.
