The mind of a child is limitless, and TELUS World of Science - Edmonton understands this best.
TELUS World of Science - Edmonton previously known as the Edmonton Space Sciences Centre, opened its doors to the public in 1984. For almost 40 years, TELUS World of Science has been dedicated to engaging Albertans’ hearts and minds in science. They attract upwards of 500,000 visitors every year, making them the most-visited cultural attraction in Northern Alberta and Canada’s third most visited science centre. TELUS World of Science - Edmonton has a strong track record of sustainable operations with 75% of their operating revenues self-generated through admission fees and retail operations. These funds are used to subsidize their educational programs and have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. With a change in their operating model, due to the pandemic, TELUS World of Science – Edmonton's opportunities for earned revenue have been significantly impacted.
