All Around Town: Telus World of Science

Hello All-

If you live in the Edmonton area and you've never been to Telus World of Science, you are missing out!  This place is hands down, my favorite spot in the city.  My family enjoyed it so much that we bought memberships during our first visit. 

Hannah is a budding scientist, so around every corner was something for her to explore.  Even as an adult, I found the exhibits very interesting and I learned a lot as well.  During our visit, there was a Sesame Street special exhibit all about the body.  We had a blast learning with all of our favorite characters.  They were also showing One World, One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure in the Margaret Zeidler Star Theatre.  Both were highlights of the trip. 

Along with the Sesame Street offerings, we also had fun in the Health Gallery, Space Gallery, DiscoveryLand, and Forensics Gallery.  We didn't make it to the Environment Gallery or Robotics Lab during this trip, but we look forward to them the next time.  All offered hands-on exhibits for all ages and there wasn't a dull moment the entire time. 

One of the upcoming exhibits to visit the museum is Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.  We saw this exhibit when it visited the Telus museum in Calgary and it is quite good.  They are also currently showing Born to Be Wild in the IMAX® Theatre.  Hannah and I saw this movie in 3D in Calgary at the Chinook Mall and it is fantastic!  If you haven't seen it, you should add it to your To Do List!!

What's your favorite part of the museum?  With goodies in every nook and cranny, I'm sure we missed some stuff and I'd love to hear your favorites!!

Happy Exploring!
