Description The TELUS World of Science began as a temporary Arts, Science and Technology Centre in 1982. The Expo Centre site was secured after Expo 86, and Science World was born. The geodesic dome was designed by Buckminster Fuller and an addition was made to the Expo building. In 1989, the 400 seat OMNIMAX theatre opened. The World of Science is a hands-on science centre with entertaining, interactive, educational displays. The unique dome shape distinguishes Vancouver’s downtown vista with its magnetic shape and enticing contents. In plain view from the TELUS World of Science, an impressive assortment of locations and destinations are visible, from Yaletown, the Plaza of Nations, BC place and GM Place to Harbour Centre, the Sun Tower and the ubiquitous mountains.
