Telus World of Science, Edmonton

Edmonton’s Telus World of Science is a pretty cool place. It opened in 1984 (hard to believe I was still in high school!) as a replacement for the Queen Elizabeth Planetarium (which is still standing, but in a state of disrepair). In addition to housing it’s own planetarium, it also offers a huge, IMAX theatre that airs nature and astronomy themed shows, as well as offering excellent, interactive science displays. Once known as the Edmonton Odyssium, the centre even has outdoor telescopes for viewing the night sky. It’s a great place for kids and adults alike who have an interest in science.
