This is a great place for the entire family, full of hands on learning opportunities. Took my 7 year old and 18 month old and both loved it. It's a bit on the pricey side and cost close to $50 for our family of 4 but if you make a day of it to get your money worth it doesn't... More

My 10 year old son has been enamored with the science center for the past 4 years. He doesn't like all the exhibits, but we have season passes and he goes back to his favorites again and again. If your child likes to sit back and be entertained, then he/she may not like the science centre. But if he/she likes... More

I find that this place has so much potential as a result of being to the ones in Edmonton and Vancouver. I felt as though there wasn't enough hands on stuff and the stuff that was hands on was crowded or didn't work as it was supposed to. I really loved the movie theatre though. That was done well.

Seriously, if I was Telus, I would be embarassed to have my name associated with this place. What a joke! The exhibits are pathetic and don't teach much. Honestly, the gift shop was the coolest thing to look thru.

My kids, 8 and 11 have asked not to go back here. Now maybe they are not the target market for this place but the displays were either too hard and complicated for them or, as my sone put it, for babies. Example: electricity and circuits display... there was NO help from the guy that was there briefly and I... More

Telus Spark is a fantastic place to visit with families young and old . Something for everyone If you don't like having kids around they have a famous Adults only night every month . If you come often a membership is the way to go .

We go regularly to this attraction with our young grandchildren all under four. They are always amazed at the exhibits (this week is dinosaurs in addition to everything else. It doesn't matter what age you are there is something for everyone. There are a lot of hands on exhibits and play areas. Too numerous to mention. I commend the cleanliness... More

Went with the wife in October 2013 - exhibits are excellent, but I overall found it a bit 'short'. I would have liked to have seen another floor of exhibits for the entry fee.

I have done the Adult night twice now at Spark, and I find the experience is unfortunately crippled by the adults. While there is a large staff of educated, well trained amazing volunteers and workers on site, so many things are getting broken and messed up that staff cannot keep up with. Daytime visits with a range of ages seem... More

I have 2 grand daughters (5 & 8) who can always fill a day at Spark. I buy the 3 of us yearly passes and feel it is $ well spent. The exhibits change periodically and so do the shows. We always enjoy our time there and appreciate the interaction with the young people that are there to answer questions... More
