Science World is open and ready to ignite curiosity and wonder through our galleries and exhibits. Our teams have put thoughtful consideration into ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for Members, visitors and staff.
We are opened at a reduced capacity for your health and safety. Please familiarize yourself with our new protocols and book your tickets in advance. We look forward to your visit!
"We had a great time at Science World today! The limited amount of ppl, the hand sanitizing stations, the directional walking, the staff, everything! I was never uncomfortable, and felt pretty safe during this time of COVID. Keep it up! I hope to visit again soon!"
We ask that all Members, visitors and staff:
- Wear a mask
Masks are mandatory for staff and visitors ages 6 and over.
We do NOT provide exceptions or permit plastic masks, face or mouth shields (unless wearing a mask underneath), masks with valves or neck gaiters. Visitors unable to wear masks can access Dome At-Home to enjoy experiments and films virtually.
- Maintain a healthy distance
Did you know that migratory Arctic caribou is about 2 metres in length? That’s the physical distance visitors will need to keep from staff and other visitors. Hand sanitizer is provided upon entry, exit and throughout the building.
- Treat visitors and staff with respect
Science World is committed to ensuring our facilities uphold anti-racist values that allow visitors to feel safe and welcomed. There will be no tolerance for any racism or discrimination (including microaggressions) towards staff or visitors.
Members and visitors can also read through our health and safety protocols to learn what to expect during your visit to the dome.
"Great work by employees to keep everyone safe. It was an awesome visit as we felt we got the whole place to ourselves! Loved the Lego exhibit. Thanks to Science World staff for making this work!"
