Experience the Arctic

TELUS World of Science has so much to offer all year round.  But if you think the centre is just for kids and school trips, boy, are you wrong!  Case in point, the amazing schedule of IMAX films.  Throughout October, you can see the thrilling film The Arctic:  Our Last Great Wilderness in the purely immersive IMAX format.

The film follows the journey of National Geographic photographer Florian Schulz as he documents animal migration, and encounters with fearsome wildlife in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in northeastern Alaska.  At 45 minutes long, with entrancing visuals, the film is great for all ages.  Get your tickets online here.

Multiple reservations for the same person for the same night(s) is considered a double booking and only one of those bookings will be eligible for rewards.
