Science World is open 7 days a week from 10am–5pm and ready to ignite curiosity and wonder through our galleries and exhibits!
Free Admission for Indigenous Peoples
Science World is honoured to host Sacred Journey, to share a powerful story of canoe resurgence as told by its leaders, and to uphold narratives of Indigenous Peoples as knowledge keepers.
To celebrate, we're offering free admission for Indigenous Peoples from July 15–Feb 20, 2023.
You are welcome to walk up in-person for a free visit. Please let the Admissions staff know you are using the coupon code "SACREDJOURNEYSW” or that you self-identify as Indigenous. You can also purchase a ticket on our website with the same code.
If you have any questions, please contact [email protected] and our team will gladly assist you.
Since the beginning of the pandemic Science World has taken an evidence-based approach to our health and safety protocols, following the advice of the Public Health Office. We continue to have hand sanitization stations inside and outside the dome, and extra cleaning measures are in place.
With a theatre, activities, events and workshops that gather 50 or more people including our Live Science Shows, Science World will continue to uphold a safe community and is committed to taking all the precautionary measures to protect the health of our communities.
We ask for your patience as we implement new procedures. We ask that all visitors continue to be kind, calm and safe—especially to our staff who are complying with regulations and protocols recommended by the provincial health authorities.
We also ask that all visitors be respectful of other people’s comfort level, and respect each other's choices.
We ask that all those visiting Science World:
- Take the BC COVID-19 Self-Check
All visitors must take the BC COVID-19 Self-Check prior to arrival to ensure that they are NOT exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19. For the safety of our visitors and staff, please stay home if you or anyone in your household has a fever, is demonstrating any COVID-19 symptoms or does not feel well.
- 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 their visit to the dome.
