Science World celebrates anniversary with original 1989 admission prices

Science World 25th Anniversary

Science World at the Telus World of Science is celebrating its 25th Anniversary by reverting back to its original admission prices from 1989.

From May 3 to 4, adult fare will be $10 and child’s fare will be $5. Visitors will also be able to enjoy an OMNIMAX film free with admission – based on a first-come, first-serve seating basis.

Science World opened its doors at the old Expo Centre pavilion for the Expo ’86. A massive $19 million renovation and expansion, funded by levels of government and private donors, repurposed the World’s Fair building into a science and technology museum.

In 2011, Science World underwent a $35 million retrofit which included a 30,000 square foot expansion, encompassing a new lobby and expanded exhibition space. In addition to major building improvements, a $7.5 million outdoor science exhibit was also constructed next to the landmark geodesic dome.
