• Hamilton Children's Museum

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.

The exhibits will feature a ship to sail on, a harbour to fish from and a market stall to sell or buy your goods. The ship’s galley kitchen is getting bigger with more cookware and more pretend food. Soon your family will be able to create feasts. There will also be a gallery dedicated to building that will inspire open-ended learning activities for hours.

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. During busy times, there may be a short, outdoor wait and visits may be limited to one hour. Visitors can call ahead to find out if there is a line up on the day they are visiting.

The Museum is open year-round.
