Hamilton Children’s Museum invites young visitors to stretch their imagination as they touch, build and experiment in a friendly, child-focused setting. Home to interactive, hands-on galleries, the museum encourages learning through self-directed play.
At the museum learning happens through play. Play supports a child’s learning in the areas of physical, social/emotional, language and cognitive developmental. Through play children learn to cooperate, solve problems, pose and answer questions and develop their fine and gross motor skills. Play inspires imagination, and imagination helps children to understand their world.
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.
Hamilton Children’s Museum welcomes schools, community organizations, daycare classes and group bookings.
PLEASE NOTE: The museum is currently closed due to an expansion project.
