Birthday Parties

We've Got Birthday Parties Down to a Science

Planning a birthday party shouldn't feel like rocket science! 

When you book a party with Science World, we take care of all the details––activities, meals, and decorations—so you don't have to. On top of that, we'll spark your birthday child’s natural curiosity and sense of wonder. A rocket launch, chemical reaction, or fire demonstration usually helps with that!

Start the party in your private room, where one of our science facilitators will lead the children through science experiments that trigger wide eyes, wonder, and plenty of “Wow!”s. Then take them out to Science World’s exciting galleries and hands-on exhibits, for a day of astonishment and delight that they will remember forever.

Chose a theme:

General Public: $249
Science World Members: $222

Available at 10:30am, 1pm and 3:30pm

We know that little ones under the age of 3 have different needs than older kids. That's why we've created a party especially designed for our youngest minds who want to explore on their own, without a set program.

Your party includes:

  • 1 ½ hours in a decorated private party room
  • All day admission to Science World at TELUS World of Science for 10 children (under 3) and 10 adults (children ages 3 and up will be charged as extra guests)
  • A party host for the duration of the party
  • Extra guests at $15 each ($12 if you are a Science World Member)
  • We invite you to bring appropriate snacks and drinks for each child

Maximum total of 30 kids and grownups in the party room.
