Hamilton Childrens Museum

DESCRIPTION

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.

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.

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.
