First off like so many of the reviews it is insanely expensive. It looks so big and cool from the outside but really there isn't much inside. You could just walk in and not pay as... read more

My Kids love going there (and I do too) I basically go to the spark centre at least twice a year (specially in winter) and I recommend it to all my friends! Is an awesome place to spend a day.

This is a huge disappointment to a born and raised Calgarian. The old science center/planetarium was an awesome value and I miss it.

The Telus Spark is a great place to visit once a year, We had a yearly pass and it worked well with our little children, but we only visited the kids area. The Dome theatre is top notch and worth checking out.

This is a genuinely cool place to visit, if you're on a grade 7 field trip. The admission price is quite high, for what you get to do & see. But if you want to tinker, there is a complete workshop to try dress making, to circuitry, to puzzles.

Excellent, interactive, science museum. Fun for the whole family, both indoors and out. Great family outing for both locals and tourists. Easy access and parking.

First off like so many of the reviews it is insanely expensive. It looks so big and cool from the outside but really there isn't much inside. You could just walk in and not pay as no one checks your tickets. We were like "where do we show these?" Oh we don't. Super. Great system. Also the parking, you don't... More

We had a fantastic time in Calgary on a cold rainy day here at Telus Sparks. We have been to many children museum around the US and I must say this is one of the best, perhaps even better than the newly opened Exploratorium in SF. Interactive exhibits for kids (and adults) of all ages spread over 2 floors, with... More

From the welcoming staff, to the outdoor park and on to the exhibits, this science center seems designed for prompting discovery and conversation among multiple generations. Absolutely love the experience of being there. Well done Spark!

Line ups, and slow service. Okay food. Not what it used to be. How they manage to serve good food is a mystery. Note I did not say GREAT FOOD.

I took my 4 year old grandson to Telus SPARK. This was his second time as I took him last year when he was almost 3. He had the best day. We saw 2 movies in the Dome - he loved the interaction with Dorian, and was fascinated with the butterflies. We spent time in the atrium and watched making... More
