Creative Kids Museum

Creative Kids Museum

Specially designed for Ages 0-8.

A hub of science for developing brains

The Creative Kids Museum (CKM) is 10,000 square feet of big fun for Spark’s littlest visitors so they can play, build and explore with all their senses!

Play inside the water area or build at one of several tactile activity tables. Get comfy in a corner to read a book, make music on the beloved bubble piano or reach new heights inside the climbing adventure space. 

Tips for parents:

  1. The water play area is a favourite, so bring a change of dry clothes!  
  2. A visit to CKM may last hours, so bring a water bottle to use at Spark’s many drinking fountains.  
  3. For convenience, bathrooms are located inside CKM. 
  4. Be sure to use the quiet room for nursing or moments where a lower stimulation environment is needed. Beverages are welcome (in containers with lids, please). 
  5. To refuel, remember that the Spark Eatery and Lunar Landing Picnic Zone open for lunch at 10:00 AM. 
  6. The climbing adventure space is for kids only. Does it look dim? That’s part of the design!
