The Hamilton Children's Museum is closed for repairs.

The Hamilton Children’s Museum was closed temporarily on July 22, 2013.  During routine inspections, it was discovered that the building was structurally unsound.

Hamilton City Council directed staff to repair the building. Repairs are expected to begin in the fall of 2014. Council also directed staff to complete a long term development plan considering options to either expand the Museum in its current location or to develop a new larger facility within the park.

Watch this site for information about the repairs and for our re-opening date.
