Can get expensive but you can limit your activities around your budget. Staff extremely helpful... More

I was there on an adults only night. There were lots of hands-on activities, and a very interesting speaker. People were building things from odds and ends of bolts etc, assembling flashlights that are intended for third world use, trying on "helmets" made of metal bits, etc. I looked around at the activity centres in the children's area. It was... More

Would highly recommend checking this out! Tons of fun for kids of all ages with lots to do. Pretty much spent a while day, between all the interactive displays, dome, live programs and outdoor park. 11 yr old and 4 yr old loved it. Food is a little ridiculous however almost to be expected.

What a great way to spend a day with the family. The day we went was a Sunday afternoon. Inside, there are so many activities the kids - including this kid-can have fun with. On a nice day, you can go outside to take in a variety of other activities. There is other presentations you can take in, but at... More

Plenty of parking spaces. A little pricey but excellent value, especially for children. Many 'hands on' activities on both floors from scientific exhibits to dressing mannequins. Adults had plenty to occupy themselves. Children were entertained /educated in the atrium by staff at regular intervals. A very enjoyable 3 hours.

Great indoor play area for kids, they can dress up and dance in a theatre and run around the kid area, with materials to build and activities designed to help little ones feel like scientists. The upper floor is more geared toward bigger kids, 10+, and the cafeteria is reasonably priced and a bit like ikea in its efficiency. If... More

The Telus Spark Science Museum is brilliant for those who like to explore, experiment and just have lots of fun. Really good choice of films in the large theatre, not too expensive but remember those money off coupons as we had a discount for the Spark Museum.

We found that a lot of the displays didn't function or functioned poorly. The maintenance side of things seems to have been forgotten. There were some interesting displays though but not enough to warrant the expensive entrance fee.

First time visit to the New science centre. We spent a lovely morning going through the exhibits and reliving memories when we used to visit the old science centre when our son was growing up. The outdoor playground for all ages was awesome, so be sure not to miss. Continues to be educational and a fun place to visit.
