TELUS World of Science — Edmonton (TWoSE) has replaced the ageing Discovery Land exhibit with a new and improved permanent children’s exhibit: CuriousCITY.
“It had been running I think for about seven or eight years and it was crowded and getting worn out, which is a really nice problem to have,” CEO Alan Nursall said. “So we said it’s time we re-imagined that gallery.”
The exhibit is now twice the size and is rich with hands-on activities and includes familiar Edmonton sights. A replica air traffic control tower from the Edmonton International Airport sits on top of the two-level structure. Below, is an airport security station and airplane for kids to explore.
“It’s a modern jet aircraft with lots of sound effects and it’s got communication between the cockpit and the replica EIA tower,” Nursall said.
According to staff at TWoSE, the exhibit that opened on March 23rd, is bigger, brighter and more fun.
