My kids love showing us all the old cars. Not much in the way of interactive displays but they've enjoyed it both times we've been.

Great place to spend Family Day in the city of Oshawa. Lots of child friendly activities with sponsors like Hagerty providing totes and balloon animals. See Canadian Automotive history as well as some international examples all under one roof. Great place for unique photos. Enjoy.🚘

Apologies for the DeLorean being covered when you came to visit. We've been painting the gallery over the past few months and occasionally cars are covered for their protection.

Lots to see and learn. Signs and info sheets are really informative and in English and French. We went there with my in-laws and two kids (9 and 11). The staff are really knowledgeable about the history of each car.
