I had heard great things from other people about this museum and was excited to take my daughters, 3 + 6. While my daughters had a nice morning and say they would like to return, I was disappointed by the state the building is it. It is very tired, and needs a lot of basic repairs done. The paint is...

I brought my daughters, aged 3 and 5, to this museum one Thur morning. It was quite a disappointment. Although there were a few exhibits to enjoy, the Arctic section as well as the Dinosaur section, every other part was in need of serious repair and cleaning. The items the children would play with were missing, incomplete or non-functioning. In... More

Haven't been here in years and years but took my daughter and her 4-1/2 year old boy one rainy day this summer ... my daughter actually volunteered for a summer here when she was a young teenager and thought that not much had changed. Found as many others have reviewed that the displays were VERY dated ... not working or... More

Went with my 3 yrs old and 14 yrs old. We went on a Friday evening after 5pm and it was free. I think I would have been disappointed if I had to pay. My 3 yrs old had fun running around but paying close attention to the exhibit; there were things out of place, broken or missing pieces. There... More

As others have stated, the museum is showing it's age and some of the exhibits are not in prime condition. That said, the kids didn't notice and had great fun. We spent about 2 hours there with our 2 & 6 yr olds and would have stayed a bit longer if not for hungry kids. A 2-3 hours visit is... More

My daughter and grandchildren ages 3 and 5 mos. recently spent the morning at the Children's museum. It was disappointing. The exhibits were dirty or had pieces missing or were not working. I felt staff could have done a better job of handling other patrons from interrupting the constellation exhibit. Would not recommend this venue.

The London Children's Museum is a fantastic feature of our city. It's underfunded and we're in danger of losing it. The kids love it, and if you sit and watch the way they destructively tear through it, it's not hard to see why many exhibit components are damaged/dirty. I wish they had the resources to maintain and refresh the exhibits... More

Lots of educational/play exhibits in a reconfigured schoolhouse. Some are getting a bit shop worn but the kids don't seem to mind. Free parking but the lot is small.
