We’re working to welcome you back through our doors again, from modifying exhibits to reconfiguring our halls. We’re listening to the advice of public health officials, so it’s going to take us a little longer to reopen. We’ve got a comprehensive plan to keep everyone safe. Take a look.
To keep everyone safe, we will be temporarily closing some experiences, including KidSpark and the Space Hall on Level 4. Don’t worry—we have many experiences elsewhere in the Science Centre that are very popular, especially with our younger visitors! Check out What to Expect for more information.
It might sound backwards, but at the Science Centre, level numbers increase as you descend. Level 1 is one floor up from Level 2 (the entrance level). Visit our famous Van de Graaff generator and try the Hair-raising Experience, located right outside the Energy Show entrance. Access Level 1 from the lobby or through the Procter & Gamble Great Hall using the stairs, escalator or elevator.
Level 2 is where you’ll start your visit. Here you can purchase tickets, store your stuff in a locker, get a snack and walk across Celebration Way to exhibitions in the Procter & Gamble Great Hall. From here, use escalators or elevators to access lower levels.
Level 3 is a seasonal outdoor terrace with a view of the Don River Valley below. Grab a snack, admire the pollinator garden and walk the trail. Access Level 3 by stairs from either the Procter & Gamble Great Hall (walk down) or the landing on Level 4 (walk up), or take the elevator directly to Level 3.
Level 4 is an exciting space for those with young kids and space enthusiasts of all ages. Catch a show in The Planetarium (space is limited, so arrive early). Access Level 4 by escalator or elevator.
Access Level 5 by going down to Level 6 first. Take the stairs or elevator up one floor. Level 5 has its own elevators.
Level 6 is a big level with lots to see and do. Explore nature and the environment, the human body and sports, and youth innovation and special exhibitions. Don’t forget to take a trip through the TELUS Rain Forest or the cave. Level 6 is the lowest level of the Science Centre. Pro tip: Start here and work your way to the top!
