HR Macmillan Space Centre Tours

HR Macmillan Space Centre

Popular with packs of enthusiastic school kids, this high-tech science center illuminates the eye-opening world of space. There's plenty of fun to be had battling aliens, designing a spacecraft, or strapping yourself in for a simulator ride to Mars, and there are also movie presentations on all manner of spacey themes.

The H.R. MacMillan Space Center in Vancouver is big on interactive displays. You can travel to Mars on the Virtual Voyages Simulator, or punch a button to watch a video of the Apollo 17 manned-satellite engine that stands in front of you. Or maybe design a spacecraft or maneuver a lunar robot in the Cosmic Courtyard.

 The planetarium hosts shows that veer from the traditional journey-through-the-stars experiences to interpretations of the skies from an indigenous First Nation point of view. Budding young astronomers can venture to the StarTheatre, which show child-friendly movies on an overhead dome.

Practical Info

The H.R. MacMillan Space Center is located in Vanier Park, across the Burrard Bridge from downtown Vancouver. The center also includes the Vancouver Maritime Museum and the Vancouver Museum. You can get to Vanier Park via bus, car, or the False Creek Ferry.
