Dinosaurs - A Must See

Dinosaurs in Motion is a terrific exhibit. Everyone enjoyed it - from the 6 year old to the 70 year old.

Dinos, family fun playing & learning together, and exploding balloons. We had a great time today. We also really liked the outdoor exhibits.

There is nothing to dislike about the Telus Spark. It is jam packed with hands on science exhibits all of which were such fun, I got told off by my wife for hogging them! The volunteers are extremely helpful and eager to interact. As for the dome cinema, it really was an out of this world experience with narration by... More

Me and my family of 5 (3 young children) are frequent visitors of the Calgary Science Centre. It's always an awesome experience!

Couldn't pull my 3 kids away from the exhibits and outdoor park & slide is a must see. Dinosaurs in motion is cool. Theatre is awesome.

Had a great time at Telus Spark. Heard a few negative things on the way in but found the actual experience to be brilliant. My qualification is that you need to go prepared to roll up your sleeves and dive in. It isn't the sort of place to just sit back and let it happen to you. You have to... More

It is a good place for all ages. I started brigning my granddaughter here when she was after 2 and now she is 6. I noticed it became more crowded in a Kids' corner. She is happy to spend more time more time outside climbing a tower in a new park they opened last year. I liked when there were... More

My kids (6 and 4) enjoyed themselves, they enjoyed the dinosaurs in motion exhibit and being able to move them as well as the interactive displays from electricity to erosion. They really enjoyed the climbing structure in the play area. I thought it was pricey, would like to see a bit less for admission or more to do and see.

Telus Spark is what a science centre should be - informative, creative and fun. I'd say you need a good 4 hours to really experience what Telus Spark offers. Don't miss the live demos - the presenters are great and make the demo fun and interesting for the audience, while imparting scientific knowledge. The only thing we found a bit... More

It's not worth the money. I paid just under $70 to get in for one adult and two children (5 and 8) including the dome show for Dinosaurs in Motion. I appreciate what the creator of these Dinos in Motion did... But the exhibit didn't teach us anything and were limited in movement to say the most. The dome show... More
