It's ok but not great

It's great for children bigger than 5 years old but for a 2 and a four year old it's there is not much to do besides the one small part of it

There is so much to do that it would take more than one day to do and see all. We had so much fun and found that there was something for every age group to enjoy. The 8 year old taking apart the old electronic devises and then going to the circuit center and make connections work. The 5 year... More

This is an excellent science centre. Going with the family is a sure way to have lots of questions asked and hopefully there is staff near by to help out with the answers because I was lost on a lot of them.

We have been to the Science Centers in Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver and this one by far is our favorite. There is tons to see and do. It is a little more expensive, but totally worth it. Go early cause parking fills up fast. Definitely a must see.

Finally made our first visit to TELUS Spark. Our group ranged in age from 11 months to 60, and each of us had a great time. We spent the day wandering in and out of each of the exhibits, participated in a few of the demonstrations, and just PLAYED all day. It was so much fun for everyone and we... More

We arrived in Calgary with half a day to spend before our hotel check in and decided to check out Spark. Admission was expensive, but I feel worth it. Our children (aged 6 and 8) loved it. The displays were age approriate and interesting and the programs running in the lobby area were engaging. The food in the restaurant was... More

I found this place to have some things that interested me but for the most part walked away thinking could have spent my time doing something way more interesting.

Beautiful, modern, new, FUN! Been here 3 times now while in town and our family of 4 is always entertained for hours. If you get a chance definitely check out a show in the dome theatre- it was incredible! If you have an annual pass for Vancouver or Edmonton science centres- you get in for FREE! *Tip- if your phone... More

Totally disappointing. No program or site map to direct us to age appropriate areas. Younger child wanted to leave after 30 minutes of bored frustration (a total waste of half our $70 cost to attend. The other 2 stayed to watch movie and on the way out finally discovered the kid zone. Would have been helpful if there were roaming... More
