Group Visits

Tour groups visiting our science and history Museum will see the collection and hear fascinating stories from a knowledgeable guide. Groups — families, students, senior travelers — will also have the opportunity to experience our hands-on interactive exhibits and, optionally, attend a MegaZapper Show.

Book your Private MegaZapper Electrical Show!

SPARK Museum has a signature show that you’ll get to see live and in person! This experience is great for groups of 12 or more who visit our downtown Bellingham during normal Museum hours during the week.

What is the MegaZapper Electrical Show? John Jenkins, SPARK Museum president, says this about the show: “It is sort of Franklin meets Frankenstein — science reality meets science fiction fun.”

Elements of the show include a variety of eye-popping machines reminiscent of Frankenstein’s laboratory. The centerpiece is a fantastic “Cage of Doom” designed and built by world-renowned sculptor Ric Allen. At the end of the show, up to three audience members (aged 18+) are invited to enter the Cage of Doom, where they will be bombarded with 4.5 million volts of electrical potential blasting out of one of the largest Tesla coils in the country! After the show, guests are encouraged to explore our historical and interactive exhibits with Docent assistance.
