Our pop-up location in Pine Centre Mall is now OPEN.

We reopened our pop-up location in Pine Centre Mall on Saturday, January 15th. At this time, we will be reopening Elements Retail only and all public programming will be postponed.

Pop-Up at
Pine Center Mall 

The health and safety of our staff and our visitors has always been our primary consideration as we make decisions during these uncertain times. As scientists learn more about the threat that Omicron presents to individuals, organizations, and in particular, to our struggling health care system and its professionals, we have closed our Pop-Up location in Pine Centre Mall, effective at 6 pm on December 23rd, 2021. 

We will be re-opening our Pop-Up location in Pine Centre Mall on Saturday January 15th at 10am. At this time, we will be reopening Elements Retail only and all public programming will be postponed.

The Exploration Place is a science centre, a museum that is central to our community, and a forum where our visitors can come to explore ideas and information in a safe and moderated environment. As such, we have a duty to the public to make careful decisions based on the emerging science.

Safety Protocols in Place

Since the beginning of the pandemic, The Exploration Place has taken an evidence-based approach to our health and safety protocols for our staff in our building and now here at the Pop-Up. We are committed to ensuring all guests have access to hand sanitization stations and are asking everyone to respect proper distancing measures. In addition, we are performing extra cleaning, have implemented a mandatory mask policy for everyone five years and up, and require proof of vaccination for everyone 12 years and up upon entry.

Pop-Up visitors must be prepared to show:

  • A valid government photo ID
  • A BC Vaccine Card showing full vaccination against COVID-19
  • A provincially/territorially recognized vaccine record for guests visiting from outside BC.
  • Proof of vaccination used to enter Canada for guests visiting from outside Canada.

Your safety, the safety of children who cannot yet be vaccinated, and the safety of our staff is our top priority. That is why we have taken additional measures to ensure your experience with us is a safe and enjoyable one.

We ask for your patience as we work through the exciting opportunity to connect with people in person again at the Pine Centre Mall Pop-Up. We also ask that everyone continue to be kind, calm, and safe, especially to our staff complying with regulations and protocols.
