You don’t have to be a Trekkie to appreciate the beauty of outer space – just see for yourself at Space Centre. Visitors can gaze into the galaxies at the Observatory, spot constellations in the Planetarium and learn about the history of astronomy.

Located at the heart of Vanier Park south of the Burrard Bridge, the Space Centre is easily accessible, has convenient parking, and also boasts a panaoramic view of the Coast Mountains and the city of Vancouver. Look for the friendly steel Crab at the front of the building. It’s one of the most photographed sculptures in Vancouver.
