For the younger children this is an excellent opportunity. I visit regularly with my 4 year old grandson (have been since he was 1) and as a teacher have done many field trips with grade 3. Feedback from the division 2 teachers is that their students enjoy it but could not spend a whole day there.

A friend of mine and I decided to take our daughters to Telus Spark for the day but I was amazed that for one adult and a three year old for admission and a ticket to the dome show was $46!!!!! We were already there so we decided to make the most of the day. The first exhibit was okay... More

We visited the Telus Spark as a group and spend several hours there. While a lot of effort has gone into the building design and most exhibits, if you have been to other Science type centres, this one is a bit pedestrian. It is really good for younger kids who have not had the experience before, but if you have... More

Expensive for a couple to go to when it is basically just a large kids playground. The old science centre seems to have better fixed attractions. Sometimes the exhibits are AWESOME!

Forget the pen & paper for a while and enjoy a few hours entertaining your curiosities. It's a pleasant atmosphere even when you stop to consider the amount of people (mostly children) all around. You may actually learn something new by watching someone else's hands on experience, but I find the experience intriguing being consumed by my own hands on.... More

We got our pass to the Telus Spark, just after it got too cold to go out to the zoo. We were so amazed that they have fun for the whole family from 2 to 32. There are show every couple of hours and lots of play areas and experiments for the kids.

Boasts the biggest dome theater in North America so you have to go watch a show. A trip can be a bit pricey, especially if you are gonna watch a movie in the dome but overall it is worth it. There are many areas of science that can be explored like human feelings, the weather, and energy and innovation. They... More
