I paid $72 for our family of four. The kids did not enjoy the visit as it was too short, given that the number of exhibits is small and not as good as the Science World in Vancouver. If you have a chance to go to Vancouver instead, don't waste your money and time here. Choose the Zoo (across the... More

I loved going to the Adult night here. So much fun to be a big kid again, they have different themes every time too which always makes it interesting. As well as you get to play throughout the whole building... including the Kids area. The only disappointing thing was they closed at 10 and they wouldn't let us go out... More

Took my son here as we hadn't been before and he wanted to check it out, I was looking forward to checking out the anatomy show...I found this science centre very small comparative to the Ontario Science Centre which is fantastic! I don't think I would rush to go back...I did enjoy the anatomy display that was the saving grace... More

Recent visit was with my grandsons school class. They were in grade 7, some were bored with listening to too much detail, they wanted to try things out for themselves, then they loved it. Young families would enjoy themselves quite a bit, things to do for all ages, try not to go to too many talks, kids hear this all... More

I took my three old granddaughter and was charged for two adults and one child 55.00. Out of all the exhibits she was only really able to participate in one area. If you wanted a show to see ie the constellations that was an additional 10.00 per person. Parking is 5.00 even though it's designated parking. I could have taken... More

It is a short distance from the Calgary Zoo, so you certainly have some choices of where to visit if you are in the area. The building itself is modern, open, and airy, so it is a pleasant place to visit. Admission prices range from... More

We were visiting Calgary and stopped with our 9 year old daughter. It is such a huge science museum with so many interactive exhibits. There are 6-7 areas to play including music, nature, electricity, human body amongst others. We spent ; hours and could have much longer. My daughter loved the animation computers making a short film, the outdoor playground,... More

Wanted to go to the zoo before flying out to Winnipeg, but rain made our decision for us. Decided to depend the hours inside at Spark and ended up having a good time. Not as big as our Ontario Science Centre, but it has some cool displays and educational exhibits all its own.

I being curious about this place, but read mixed reviews so I was a bit hesitant; it was a really good experience with a toddler that doesn't seem to get entertained with anything, I actually made the mistake of not going earlier, baby was good even in the movie presentation... Their only down is not having "spark helpers" to guide... More
