Goodnight Moon

The classic bedtime story is back this holiday season.

The Great Green Room is back at Spark!

Enjoy the immersive rendition of Margaret Wise Brown's classic bedtime tale, Goodnight Moon while interacting and playing with characters and images from the story's visual universe.

Goodnight Moon is a timeless bedtime story, read to generations of people for 76 years, and now the story is told through an immersive and interactive digital experience at Spark. Get fully immersed in the story through state-of-the-art technology and art camera systems spanning nearly 3,000 sq ft.

Begin the Goodnight Moon experience by learning about the science of sleep, before entering the main exhibit room, where guests can digitally paint in the story scene around them. Once the room is filled with colour, it's time to settle in for story time as you've never experienced before.

The Science of Sleep

  • Does the moon affect sleep?

In short, quite possibly! A recent study of both rural and urban settings has shown interesting synchronicity between circadian rhythms and phases of the lunar cycle. On average, people sleep less and go to bed later, the night before a full moon.

  • What is a nightmare?

Nightmares are simply dreams within the REM stage of sleep that have negative emotional effects – and most are absolutely no fun. They may be the body’s way of relieving stress or the pressures of the day. In other instances, they are brought on by new medications, irregular sleep or mental health disorders.

  • How do astronauts sleep?

Forget cozy comforters or plush pillows. In the microgravity of space, “lying down” just isn’t possible – in fact, there is no real up or down! Astronauts in the International Space Station (ISS) sleep in small pods, or strap their sleeping bags to the floor or a wall so they don’t drift away (as they drift away).

    • How long is the experience?

      Goodnight Moon is approximately eight to nine minutes long and plays on a repeating loop. Since the show is best experienced from the beginning of the story, guests are asked to wait in the Twilight Waiting Room until the story begins again.

    • How much are tickets?

      Goodnight Moon is included in General Admission to Spark. That means it’s free for Members! General Admission provides access to the whole science centre, including two floors of exhibit halls, two theatres, and live happenings on any given day!

    • Are food and drinks allowed inside Goodnight Moon?

      Food and drinks are not allowed in the Digital Immersion Gallery. Enjoy delicious goodies in the Eatery on the second floor or Astronaut Ice Cream café near the front lobby!

    • Who is this experience suitable for?

      Suitable for people of all ages, though some may find this experience disorienting. If at any point you feel dizzy, stand still and close your eyes for a moment. If you are accompanying children or someone with sensory sensitivities, please hold their hand.
