Lots to see and do, you could easily spend a whole day here with the kids. Actually, I think I could amuse myself there all day.

My 11 and 8 year old grandsons loved this interactive museum. Spent 2 hours at The Museum enjoying hands-on activities. Don't miss the star show! Pack snacks or lunch!

Oh dear. What can I say. A lot of empty space. Not a museum at all - some kiddie interactive games but sure not worth the cost of entry. Save your money and time. Don’t bother.More

This fun downtown museum has something for everyone. When I visited, there was a show put together by local refugees and high school students, a travelling exhibit about cryptocurrency, and loads of fun activities for kids and adults alike.

Visited with a 10 and 13 year old. Everyone found something interesting, including the parents, who enjoyed the display of 'old' computer tech. The kids enjoyed playing the original games - Space invaders, Pong, etc. We also enjoyed the interactive art exhibit.

Great place for adults as well as kids. Great kids play area. The features in the Museum are always changing. Closed for renovations until tomorrow I believe. Check themuseum.ca for upcoming attractions.
