Walk among dinosaurs and shoot for the stars at the TELUS World of Science.
By Katrina Turchin | July 1, 2021
What do dinosaurs and Daft Punk have in common? Not much, but they’re both featured at the TELUS World of Science, reopening on July 1.
Go back in time with Expedition: Dinosaur, where the beasts are unleashed. Walk among the animatronic prehistoric creatures and take in their lifelike sounds and movements. Not only will you encounter dinosaurs, but you can also talk to historical figures that will teach you all about fossils and the competitive fossil hunting era known as the Bone Wars. Practice your palaeontologist and archeologist skills with the interactive fossil displays where you can extract dinosaur bones from the earth.
If walking with dinosaurs sounds like something out of a nightmare, then feel free to watch them through the big screen during Dinosaurs of Antarctica playing in IMAX. Learn about the giants that used to roam the polar landscapes of Antarctica hundreds of millions of years ago.
If you’ve been reading this long to learn more about how Daft Punk fits in, here you go: Take a break from the scorching temperatures outside and enjoy a laser light show in the Zeidler Dome to Daft Punk’s music. The hour-long show is a tribute to the French duo’s 28-year-long career and features hits like “Face to Face,” “Around the World” and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.” Sit back and enjoy the strobe lights.
The TELUS World of Science reopens on July 1 and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets must be purchased online in advance for feature exhibitions and IMAX films.
