My Employer arranged a night out at the museum for parents and their children either it be your immediate family members or grand children. My grand children had a fabulous time viewing the dinosaur exhibits as well as the many other play areas.

Went specifically with my niece's 2 year old and he loved it. Were there first thing in the am and he enjoyed all morning with the interactive set ups. Was a little too impatient for the 10 am painting dinosaur project but that was ok. He got a real kick with all the other things to do. The only thing... More

We went here as a family, everyone had so much fun. We all had our favourite exhibits. I loved the interactive dinosaurs.

We took our two grand-daughters aged 7 and 5 and our 6 year old grandson to the Museum today. What a wonderful place for children. They enjoyed themselves immensely. You can take your lunch which we did not know. There are 4 floors of things for the children to do. It is very well setup. You have to pay for... More

Three floors of interactive science. Many of the exhibits weren't operational when we were there; you're left to figure out everything for yourself. Would've been nice to have someone to explain some of the activities and guide you through.

great place for the whole family! the tot spot room is great for wee ones and for special needs. There is also space for you to bring your own packed lunch or snacks. At peak times it can get a bit nutty!

Though this museum aims to please kids, the dinosaur exhibit for one. There is a tiny space that showed Stratford Festival Costumes. I really liked those! The white room completely covered in spots was a challenge on the eyes. Our visit was short, but we could see the kids having a blast! There is even a door at the entrance... More

We have been here several times with our 2-year-old and we enjoy it every time. It's never very busy (which is a shame, but nice for us). There are craft projects throughout the day, a really cool star show, and a main attraction that always changes. We always pack our lunch and eat there. There's a large space with many... More

"Children's Museum" was a good name for this place originally; it could compete with similar attractions in other cities. Our kids liked the various play areas and had a great time. Over the course of subsequent visits, we have noticed a steady change in the atmosphere; now it feels more like a social engineering project with too many politically-motivated exhibits... More
