The SPARC museum is located on the Riverview Hospital grounds in Coquitlam, B.C., Canada, about 15 miles east of Vancouver.

The Riverview Hospital grounds are a sprawling site with many buildings. It can be a little difficult to find the building containing SPARC.
There are two main entry points to Riverview off the Lougheed Hwy (#7) between the Cape Horn interchange and Coquitlam Centre: one at Colony Farm Rd. and one at Orchid Drive.
SPARC is located in a light-yellow-brown metal-clad, flat-roof building roughly in the north-south centre of the grounds, up the hillside from the red-brick East Lawn building and south of the white-and-blue North Lawn building.
If you spot a number of antennas, you're very close.

Parking is plentiful and free.
