The Hamilton Children's Museum is closed for repairs.

The Hamilton Children's Museum will re-open on Saturday, December 5, 2015.

The stabilization of the Hamilton Children’s Museum is complete and we are busy getting the interior of the building spruced up, and new interactive exhibits built and installed. We look forward to welcoming the public to explore our new and revised gallery spaces and to participate in our special events and programs. Special thanks to those who conveyed your support and inquired about the status of our progress during our temporary closure. It was fun to take our engaging learning experiences on the road for a while but we are looking forward to greeting visitors on our home base once again on Saturday, December 5, 2015. 


The Hamilton Children's Museum is an exciting place for children to learn through hands on activities and workshops. We welcome schools, community organizations, daycare classes and group bookings.

During busy times, there may be a short, outdoor wait to get in the door and visits may be limited to one hour. Call us to find out if there is a line up on the day you are coming. The Museum is located in beautiful Gage Park where you can find lots to do while you wait.
