Each area of the science center explores a different topic; connect with family and friends in Being Human, investigate geology in Earth & Sky, make something new in the Open Studio, or get active in the outdoor Brainasium. A special Creative Kids Museum caters to younger visitors under nine years of age.

- Admission is free for children under three years old.
- All areas of the museum, including the classrooms, theater, and galleries, are wheelchair accessible.
How to get there
TELUS Spark is easy to get to from Calgary’s bike path system, as well as by public transportation. Take the LRT to Zoo Station; the walk to the museum takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus also stops nearby.
When to get there
The museum is open daily throughout the year, with extended early morning hours for the Creative Kids Museum Monday through Saturday. School groups tend to visit on weekdays between 10am and 2:30pm, so visit outside these hours for a quieter experience.
Adults Only Nights
The young at heart are in luck; TELUS Spark hosts regular Adults Only Nights where those over the age of 18 enjoy free rein of the museum, along with music, a dance floor, and a full bar. These events often include docent talks in the Atrium, as well as other special activities hosted throughout the exhibit space.
