Thirty years ago, the idea of a museum for children was virtually unknown in Canada, but a 1973 visit to a children’s museum in Boston convinced our founder, Carol Johnston, to start Canada’s first children’s museum in London.
Together with a group of enthusiastic volunteers, Carol began running programs in 21 playgrounds throughout the city, building support for the idea. The Children’s Museum then occupied a variety of temporary facilities until 1982 when Riverview Public School was purchased, renovated and became our permanent home.
