  • The Whales Exhibit opened on Saturday at Telus Spark and I have to say that it is truly impressive in its scope and magnitude. I learned so much about the culture and spirituality of the wWhales as pr...  more »

  • We went on Adult night which was perfect, no kids. This was an excellent way to enjoy all the interactive exhibits which may normally be unobtainable for the adults. The standard exhibits were a lot o...  more »

  • This place is pretty great for the family. The smaller kids love the creative kids museum and especially the play structure. This place is often crazy busy with tons of kids enjoying the activities. Lots of other cool stuff within for the older kids to explore. They do some cool demonstrations in the atrium. The bed of nails is also pretty cool. Well worth checking out, but not a cheap day out. Also, the food is good, but very expensive for what you get. Lunch for the family was $65.
  • The Spark is fun and our kids always have a good time. I find I still don’t enjoy it as much as the old one. I also find that ever time we go a certain amount of the displays are broken and not working properly. Play area is fun and the water table. The outdoor slides and everything are also great. We have caught a few of the experiments in the main lobby. One was a pumpkin drop from the second level. Some were coloured flames. Neat stuff that the kids liked. The latest Whale exhibit was also quite interesting.
  • I love this place! So much to see and so much to do. You can go individually or as a group. They offer tours and educational "classes". Everytime I've gone there's something new to see and experience. I've taken kids as they grow and learn over the years and it's fun to watch as they move from one area to another or expand on previous fun activities. Parking is ample and I think it's priced accordingly. Can't wait to go again!
  • You want to go here. If you're an adult there's plenty of interesting exhibits. If you're a parent there's something here for your kids no matter their age. The regular exhibits are great, with sections designed to appeal to various ages but they also have temporary exhibits which means there's something new and fresh here on most visits. Get the annual pass and register you plate so you don't have to pay for parking when you visit. The gift shop is great with lots of fun brain gear. I've gone just to shop there when looking for that kind of gift for people that enjoy that kind of stuff. It's also a great option in the winter when it's cold outside and the kids need somewhere to burn off some energy but expect there to be some crowds on those days.
  • This is one of my favourite places. There are wonderful small children's areas as well as areas for older children and teens. The staff and volunteers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I love the outdoor play area. It also has various levels of physical challenges which suits wide age ranges. I have yet to enjoy a documentary in their theater but the live demonstrations are always engaging and informative. We are season pass holders and enjoy ourselves there during every season.
