Reimagine the Canadian Children’s Museum with us!

October 18, 2018


For immediate release

Gatineau, Quebec, October 18, 2018 — The Canadian Children’s Museum invites kids and adults to enjoy a day of fun family activities on Sunday, October 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Help us reimagine this popular space at the Canadian Museum of History by taking part in a special one-day event, where you can draw, build, imagine and chat with our staff at several different activity zones. We want to know what you and your family think, so that together we can make the renewed Children’s Museum a more fun learning experience than ever!

Among the free activities, you will be invited to draw or build your ideal Children’s Museum, you will have the opportunity to chat with our “curious curator” about what kinds of objects you like to collect, and you will be able to contribute to the “renewal tree” by responding to three questions. Adults will be invited to share their ideas on toddler spaces in the renewed Children’s Museum, while their little ones have fun on soft play structures.

Can’t join us on Sunday? Share your ideas by completing the online survey before Sunday, November 18.

About the renewal project:

We are planning a renewal of the Canadian Children’s Museum in the coming years so that we can continue to meet the needs and expectations of our visitors through engaging, accessible and dynamic experiences. The Children’s Museum will remain open in its current configuration until January 2020. From February 2020 until the renewal is completed in the summer of 2021, many modules will be temporarily relocated within the Museum of History, accompanied by a dynamic lineup of family-friendly special exhibitions, activities and programs.

More information is available at or by calling 819-776-7000 or 1-800-555-5621.

Work of the Canadian Museum of History is made possible in part through financial support of the Government of Canada.
