We took our grand children there last summer and they had a ball. You can spend more than a day there. Our grandson did not want to leave. If you have annual pass to your local Science Centre, you may be able to get in for free as some of these centers have reciprocal arrangements.

I have been here countless times with kids and I have never been disappointed, The new playground they built is awesome and you can easily spend a few hours in here. The cost may be expensive but it is worth it to get the membership and depending on which one you get, you can also enter the planetarium and watch... More

The Telus Spark science center seems to be an educational trip for kids. However, there were few exhibits that caught the awe and wonder that I would expect from a science center. Nothing was really leading edge and exciting. It felt more like walking through a grade 7 science text book. Exhibits to educate youngsters on the fundamentals of science.... More

The new dinosaur exhibit is amazing! Go visit before it disappears I think at the end of June. Also, it seems that they have fixed/upgraded some of their crappier exhibits since the last time I was there

My kids are aged 8, 5, 3 and they love spending the day at the Spark Science Centre, we go 1-2x a month and usually spend 3-4hrs, and the kids are never bored. There is so much for them to explore and create. Each exhibit offers activities that are open-ended so that kids can create their own things. My 5yr... More

We have yearly passes for my 2 children, aged 5 and 6, my wife and myself. We've had them for 2 years now and I can see the impact it's had on the kids. We go a couple of times a month, at least. Discounted Dome Show tickets for included with our membership are really great as well. We plan... More

Our family never gets tired of visiting the Telus Center. You can easily spend the day roaming from exhibit to exhibit. So much to see & play with. If you've never been, pack up your family today & head for some family fun!!!!!

Decent value for the money. The theatre is GREAT value for money. The gift shop (free) is worth the other prices of admission alone. Great for the kids and the educational component is stellar.

It's a typical science center, exhibits are well done, not as maintained as they should be.I find price vs value is high. If price isn't a concern it's a good way to spend a couple hours with the family, and the zoo is next door.
