Vancouver Boutique Hotel Only a Short Way from Science World
For visitors psyched to visit Vancouver’s famous Science World, the Victorian Hotel in Vancouver puts you in a prime location to access this attraction.
Initially built as the centerpiece for Expo 86, the historic geodesic structure was soon made a permanent feature and repurposed as the new home for Vancouver’s Science World, even dedicated as such by Queen Elizabeth II.
Built initially with a 3D IMAX theater and later incorporating a 400 seat OMNIMAX theater, Science World puts on a number of wild and awe-inspiring nature and science documentaries.
But of course, the key attraction of the theater are the interactive and educational indoor and outdoor displays like the Ken Spencer Science Park, and exhibits dealing with everything from natural science to industrial engineering to optical illusion to jaw-dropping live science demonstrations. There’s something for everyone here, from the young to the young at heart.
They even provide late night attractions for older visitors. This month on August 23rd, Science World After Dark invites guests to discover the science behind computer animation with their new feature exhibition, The Science Behind Pixar.
After finishing a major renovation in 2012, Science World (officially known as Telus World of Science) continues to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the province and even across the country. It’s just a ten-minute drive from the Victorian Hotel—or you can take the Expo Skytrain, or the nearby Number 19 bus.
After a long day of education that feels a more like entertainment, guests can return to the Victorian Hotel in Vancouver and enjoy the comfort and indulgences on offer, including luxury pillow tops, soaker tubs, high-speed WiFi, and flat-screen TVs. Then, the next day, enjoy a complimentary Healthy Start breakfast, and prepare yourself for your next adventure.
