Kids loved it but it sure needs some help

Entry fee was $70 ish for two adults and two boys, six and nine years old. Ask the boys and they will say it was a great day, they truly had a blast for about four hours. The... read more

I went there with a number of children , and they loved it. We were surprised that the planetarium was charged separately, so we didn't see it. Good idea to try to have no reversing in the parking lot with all the kids around. The sign says do not back into the stalls, so people try to drive through so... More

The passive pull-a-lever-and-see-what-happens science centre of my youth has been replaced by an immersive, interactive tool-kit that takes a little effort and creativity to enjoy—stop-motion animation tools; giant foam blocks; chalk, water and roughly textured walls—all adding up to one giant, complex toy that both my three year old nephew and I enjoy in our own way. The only warning... More

it was a different experience to go to the telus spark. Lots of unique thing to learn as for the dinosaurs section it was the best.The rapture all felt like real life as in their movements. Do it once for sure but to go back another time maybe not. Was a good date to bring the wife to

It was a toss-up between Heritage Park and Telus Spark and I'm glad we chose the latter. Our group had six kids aged 3-10 and they were enthralled for our entire four hour visit. We didn't visit all the galleries as the kids were having such a great time in the ones we did see. I highly recommend this destination... More

Forget the zoo this is next door and 200x better. There is something to do for every kid! There is a kids section for smaller kids like 1-8. They can run, climb play build create! It is crazy. In fact we could spend all day there. But there are all kinds of science related but very fun exhibits all thought.... More

Our family (2 adults and 2 8-year-olds) all loved it at this science centre. We ended up being there for 6 hours (including a quick lunch and a movie at the dome theatre), and still didn't quite get to everything. We started out in the Children's Creative Museum, which is geared to kids 8 and under. My girls LOVED this... More

My husband & I went to waste some time one Sunday morning. It was pretty fun, but there's no real direction (maps, staff assistance, or answers to some of the activities). We did have fun for an hour or so. The upstairs is quite repetitive and the dino exhibit was neat looking but that's about it. We really enjoyed the... More

My boys are 6 and 2 and they love going to Telus Spark. I like the fact that you can go year-round, even when the weather is cold--it's a great indoor place for kids to play, explore and learn science in the process. The live demonstrations at the Inspiration Stage are my boy's favorite attraction. Even my 2-year-old sits there... More

I took my grade 2 class for to visit the center for about 3 hours. The water play stations were favorites as well as the climb and slide areas (inside and outside). Too bad the movable dinosaurs are temporary as these were a hit too, but we will look forward to seeing the new exhibit! I like that the space... More
