Owner description: Located within the Canadian Museum of History (formerly the Canadian Museum of Civilization) Hands on adventure! The Canadian Children's Museum is one of the most popular attractions at the Canadian Museum of History, and has been since it opened its doors in 1989. Passports in hand, visitors discover one incredible destination after another. Whether on a visit to homes in the International Village, a trek to a desert pyramid, a jaunt to the Port of Entry to help unload a cargo ship, or a stroll through the bustling Market Bazaar, visitors encounter endless ways to learn about the world and one another. A world of discovery where parents have as much fun as their kids!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Children's Museum and spent about 3 hours there with our 4 & 6 yr olds. Plenty to discover and most of all everything is hands on.
We wish though that all the buttons & screens that were to be explaining things or just being part of the displays would have worked....

We have taken our grandchildren here a few times and they have always had a great time. It has been designed well, to let young children try out all kinds of things on their own, like a little thyeatre where they can dress up like clowns, or a ship where they can manipulate a little crane that lifts dummy freight.

This is a part of the Canadian Museum of Civilization located on the Second Level. Fantastic place for kids! Me and my daughter spent there 3 hours, but a child can spend there the whole week without getting bored. Absolutely, the best kids’ museum ever!

This museum is the most interactive I've ever been to. Every child I've seen there has been having a blast. You get a "passport" and children travel to different countries and experience something local - climbing around a pyramid in Egypt, riding a double decker bus in the UK, visiting a market in India - and get their passport stamped. The museum if located INSIDE the Museum of Civilization complex in Hull, Quebec.
