Not worth the money

I went with friends thinking it would be an amazing trip. Overall I found it to be overpriced for some low level and boring exhibits.

Prepaid for tickets for Adults Only night on Feb 11. Went early. Waited in line an outrageous amount of time to have our tickets scanned and enter the facility. We meandered and then watched our Dome Show which is geared towards children; not adults. After watching the Dome Show we were told there were too many people in attendance to... More

Too bad they charge for parking on top of entry fee. The Science Centre is more geared to family and children. There is a few adult evening programs, but not nearly enough. Mini makers fairs were pretty good on the other hand. Cafeteria reminds me of being back in school , not nearly as well executed as the rest of... More

Save your money and "don't bother" going to the Telus Sparks Body World event. Absolutely not much too see and compared to when Body Worlds was at the Edmonton Space Science Centre, Calgary is missing over 100 displays. I was quite disappointed in the lack of effort and displays that were featured for the price of admission. Save your money... More

I remember the old Science center and it had so many things that entertained even the adults. The new science center caters only to young children. Unless you are there to watch there IMAX movies I wouldn't recommend going without kids. It is extremely educational for children under 12. I am glad my 10 year old enjoyed all the aspects... More

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to send us your review. We always appreciate feedback from our visitors. If you're interested in coming to the science centre on an evening for adults, we recommend visiting Adults Only Night on the second Thursday of every month. The Atrium is filled with activities for adults, there's a bar and music... More

The Telus Spark Science center is a great facility and full of interactive centers. My friend and I went to the body worlds exhibit and it was very well done & an enriching learning experience. The rest of the science center is great for family fun! Would recommend seeing a dome show.
