A decent center for families. Good for toddlers and young teens. A full day place to enjoy. Advice : Better to go in summers or sunny days, to enjoy outside recreation and kid's play area

Telus Spark is a unique interactive experience for the whole family, young and old! My daughter and I saw alot and learned alot of interesting facts during our walk around the exhibits! A great time had by both! Worth a couple of visits for sure!

We spent the afternoon with our 7 yr. old Grandson & as usual he was having so much fun he didn't want to leave. It's pricey plus parking

Hello! Thank you for visiting, it sounds like you and your grandson had a great time! If you visit frequently throughout the year and haven't considered membership already, it's definitely something to think about as it pays for itself after just a few visits. Our Gold Membership actually includes free parking and planetarium shows! Thanks again for coming and leaving... More

Looking for something to keep us busy on a cold long weekend, we headed to TELUS Spark in the morning. Adults and children were entertained! Highly recommend going in the morning to avoid the crowds!

We visited with a local couple on a Tuesday afternoon. The exhibits are definitely geared toward children but as adults we too enjoyed many of them. We visited in later afternoon so missed some of the featured shows and demonstrations. Very well done!

Great place for all ages to play and learn. Amazing shows and presentations. Extremely helpful and nice staff. Hands on activities for kids. Our kids love the hot glue section where they can spend hours creating all sorts of things. I highly recommend getting the season pass as it pays for itself in just a few visits. We have been...

Wife and I just had to get out and their Adult Night was perfect for us. We got to play around like we were kids. While their assortment of activities is diverse, as the night goes on it can be challenging to find an open table. So get their early and maybe go for dinner after. This is one of... More

Hi David A, we're glad you enjoyed Adults Only Night! It's a great opportunity for those kids at heart to explore and see what TELUS Spark is all about. We have some great themes coming up this year, including I <3 Fried Food, Crime and Punishment, and #ThrowbackThursday... just to name a few! We'll also be opening our updated cafe... More

This is a great structural place for kids 2 yrs & older. There's lots of objects for kids to do hands on. Kids are running around and amused with all the displays. I'm not sure if the teen section was appropriate, we were very surprised it was there. Would go again in summer with kids when the outdoor area is... More

Hi Faye Y, thank you for your feedback about your TELUS Spark visit! I believe you are referring to the Being Human gallery. This gallery encourages guests to connect their unique features and experiences to fascinating science, from finding out what gets your heart racing to exploring your body at a microscopic level. It's certainly more high-level, but we encourage... More

We went to the Telus Spark, also called science museum on a Sunday morning. It was quite busy!! So we only went to the children s section. This place is fantastic for children between 1 and 10.
