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!

If you have a child or children and you're in the Gatineau/Ottawa area, DO stop at the civilization *cough* or the Canadian History museum. (Can thank our federal government for the name change). Hours and hours of entertainment guaranteed and you won't even have to do anything. Kids will make friends instantly with others and you can just sit back and relax while keeping an eye on your little one.

Very educational, entertaining and fun for them. And you might even catch yourself at trying some of the games and even play with the kids. You can spend easily 4hours there without even knowing it! That' show fun it is!!!

My 9 year and 4 year had lot of fun. We tried the 1 Museum + 1 IMax. The food is little on the expensive side, so better fill your stomach coming here.

We enjoyed our visit to the museum. It is included in the price of admission to the Canadian Museum of Civilization.

Expect to spend 2-3 hours here. There are a no.of different areas set up, all based on themes of various countries. I think there are about 12 or so countries depicted, including Mexico, Pakistan, some African countries, Holland, etc. All the regions of the world are depicted and children get a sense of how people live in each country. There are also interactive areas set up for kids to use their imagination and play

The museum also has days/time when you can visit it for free. You may want to check out the website of Museum of Civilzation for the details

Will recommend this

The kids up to 14 or so will love this museum, this is a must go. There are plenty of thing for them to descover and play with, including lot of costumes to try.
Then follow your visit with the civilization museum which is really good.
