Cold winter day, great place to let 5 year old and 3 year old explore and run off energy. Start in the climbing area and let them go. Friendly, helpful staff. Then move on to water area to explore pressure and flow. The Whale exhibit...More

The Whales Exhibit opened on Saturday at Telus Spark and I have to say that it is truly impressive in its scope and magnitude. I learned so much about the culture and spirituality of the wWhales as presented by the native New Zealanders. This is...More

Firstly, the parking, now reduced to $5 from $10, was not working and charged me twice. It will take 20 days to get back the $5. More importantly, the price is high for admission for what you get. I recall exhibits at other cities that...More

This is a wonderful, interactive science centre. We had lots of kids with us and they had an amazing time. There are lots of stem challenges and opportunities for hands-on learning. I would definitely come back!

We went for the November Adults Only Night. Lots of people there and lots of activities. Went just the two of us and was still fun but would recommend going with a bigger group. Worth checking out.

It’s a expensive glorified playground for pre schooler. The adults pay the top fee but there is nothing for them. If you are 7 years old and under you might find it entertaining otherwise it very boring. Plus you need to pay 5$ for parking...More

I love science centres. This is a very family/children oriented space. Lots to do. If I came here by myself, I would be bored however, it really plays to the child/adolescent more than the adult. Very disappointed in the cafe service. We stopped by the...More

We were traveling with my 21 month old grand-daughter and there were enough engaging activities in this one small area to keep us all busy for several hours. The highlight though might have been the performance stage where children danced and performed in the spotlight.

Went to Telus Spark as we've always been interested. What a waste of time and money. Poor exhibits with little to keep interest. I could see kids interested a bit more, which is why I gave 2 instead of a 1. For adults, it took...More

I used my telephone camera to take pictures of my granddaughter and no one prevented me from doing this. The museum has a website that should be able to help you with your question
