Follow your child's lead through nine interactive exhibits!

Designed for children aged 0-9, open-ended exhibits appeal to children of different interests and abilities. Each exhibit provides a wealth of play-based learning experiences that encourage children's cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development.


Child Long Ago

Step back in time as you enter our one-room schoolhouse. Become the teacher, or grab your slate and practice your lessons. When the school day is over, head home for an imaginary meal cooked over the wood stove, or a friendly game of checkers. Discover what it would have been like to live in 1880 with a look at the clothes and toys from a century ago.


Dig for dinosaurs - or become one! In our Dinosaur gallery, you can dress up like a dinosaur, listen to what they may have sounded like, or become a paleontologist and dig up bones. Discover the differences between herbivores and carnivores and see just how big these Jurassic giants were!

The Lookout

While this gallery is always changing, the one thing that remains constant is the big beautiful window that fills this space will light. Enjoy a quiet moment and experiment with reflections, shadows, and colour as you combine the changing lighting with new materials found in the Lookout. 

London Hydro You'll Make a World of Difference

Put your muscles to work! Use mechanical energy to produce electrical energy to power the lights in the house! Experiment with circuits to make things light up, spin, or buzz. Learn about how wind, water, and the sun power our homes in all different kinds of weather. 

My Arctic Discovery

Journey north in My Arctic Discovery. The landscape, culture, and wildlife of the Arctic will come to life in this interactive exhibit. Experience life in the Arctic as you crawl through the igloo and end up in a modern Inuit household. Try your hand at ice fishing, learn to write in Inuktitut, or challenge a friend to a throat singing competition.   

Science In Your World

Science is all around us! From farm to table, and even in our backyard, our natural environment provides us and our animal neighbours with food, shelter, and fun! Plan a nutritious meal, learn about pollinators, plant a garden, or harvest what you’ve grown. However you choose to play, you’re sure to discover scientific principles!

Sifton Street Where You Live

Welcome to the neighbourhood! This child-sized street is full of opportunities to play pretend. Fill up your car at the gas station, then head to the grocery store, the bank or to work! Become a postal worker, a dentist, or build London’s newest tower. 

TD My Place In Space

Prepare for lift-off! Launch a rocket from your seat in Mission Control, or climb aboard and pilot the shuttle. Spend some time at the International Space Station before suiting up for a moonwalk. Learn about planets, stars, and constellations during a star show in our planetarium! 

Things In Caves

An underground world, filled with life and what previous inhabitants have left behind. Crawl through the caves and seek and find all the creatures that live inside - and maybe some other spelunkers as well!
