Plan Your Visit

Bring your kids to the Children’s Museum and they won’t want to leave!

The Museum lets the kids travel the world, while enriching their lives and broadening their experience by exploring other cultures through exhibitions, costumes, hands-on props, and artifacts, including an extraordinary assortment of toys and games.

They can clamber aboard a lavishly decorated Pakistani bus and a three-wheeled auto rickshaw from Thailand. Or step inside a Bedouin tent and homes from India, Indonesia and Mexico. The Museum’s diversity and richness engage children of all ages, allowing them to explore and learn through play at their own pace.

It’s a fun, memorable first step in a child’s understanding of the arts, culture and history.

The Canadian Children’s Museum is located inside the Canadian Museum of History. Admission Fees to the Canadian Museum of History include access to the Children’s Museum, special exhibitions and to all the Museum’s galleries.
