Ticketed Entry

Visitors can book tickets online in advance and expect to spend up to 3 hours at Science World during their visit. This will reserve a specific entry time for your visit.

As we are a charitable organization, we have been significantly financially impacted by COVID-19. Because of this, we are temporarily unable to accept any complimentary coupons or discounts on admission tickets unfortunately. We are also unable to process any free passes such as Reciprocal Memberships.

Walk-up tickets are subject to availability. If purchasing tickets online is an issue for you, please contact us at reserve@scienceworld.ca.

When purchasing your ticket, you can also reserve time to experience Science World’s OMNIMAX® Theatre and our feature exhibition Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks. 

There will be no re-entry. 

Please note that tickets are non-transferable in order to ensure our ability to contact trace if necessary. If you are unable to use your ticket for your reserved date, please contact reserve@scienceworld.ca and we will be happy to re-schedule your visit. 

Membership 

Science World Memberships that were active as of March 2020 have been extended to reflect the time remaining on their membership before we closed. Log-in to your online account to see your expiry date.

Members are required to reserve tickets. Please make sure you log into/set up your online account to access your tickets (you will need your membership's primary contact last name, membership number and expiry date). If you require any assistance with your reservation, please contact members@scienceworld.ca. Please note: you do not need to reserve tickets for children 3 and under.

Upon your arrival, we will check the Membership card of the reservation holder.

Physical Distancing and Health and Safety 

Science World staff and volunteers will be wearing masks or face shields to help to protect the health and safety of both our team and visitors. 

It is mandatory for visitors ages 6 and over to wear either a mask or face shield, as they help contain speech-generated droplets.

Visitors will be expected to maintain a physical distance of 2 metres from staff and other visitors and to use hand sanitizer provided upon entry and exit.

Visitors are required to agree to a Code of Conduct when purchasing tickets. This will be visible at our entrance and offered as a reminder throughout the building.

Signs and directions will guide you through the new visitor pathways in our building. These new pathways will allow for physical distancing and flow through the galleries, elevators, stairwells and washrooms. Please follow the directions of staff and respect the spaces of other visitors to Science World.   

Triple O’s, Snack Lab and drinks and food vending machines will be closed. If you have a health condition that requires you to have snacks/beverages during your visit, please bring them with you and consume only when seated and physically distanced from other visitors.

Bring your re-fillable water bottle! The touchless water bottle filling stations will be functioning. The hands-on buttons and bubblers (the part you put your mouth near) will not be functioning. 

There will be no tolerance for any racism or discrimination towards other visitors or staff. Any misconduct will result in removal from the facility without a refund.
