• Hamilton Children's Museum

The Hamilton Children's Museum is an exciting and interactive destination for young children. We welcome schools, community organizations, daycare classes and group bookings.

Newly renovated gallery exhibits take their inspiration from Hamilton’s natural landscape and how it is used by people and other living things:

The Summers Theatre Stage, inspired by the popular theatre that once sat atop Wentworth Street incline railway on the escarpment
The Building Gallery, featuring Gage Park and its transformation from family orchard to urban greenspace
The Ship Gallery, featuring above and below deck activities, including a galley kitchen, a cargo boom and a musical ship whistle

Housed in an 1875 farmhouse in beautiful Gage Park, the museum was once home to Hamilton’s Gage Family. It has been providing family-friendly learning opportunities to the public for more than 30 years.
