Accessibility

The London Children’s Museum celebrates the unique thoughts, wishes, and contributions of every child. We are committed to providing a safe and accepting environment that supports children of different ages, abilities, and interests. 

We are eager to hear about new ways to serve children and families in our community. We welcome your family’s feedback, suggestions, and questions regarding accessibility. Please contact us at info@londonchildrensmuseum.ca if your family has any thoughts to share!

Support Workers

Personal support people are welcome to attend the London Children’s Museum at no cost when they are accompanying individuals they support. The London Children’s Museum also accepts the Access 2 Card.

Calm and Quiet 

If your child needs a quiet space while at the London Children’s Museum, My Artic Discovery, the Lookout, and London Hydro You’ll Make a World of Difference are great exhibits to visit. If you are hoping to experience the London Children’s Museum during a quieter time, weekday afternoons are typically less busy. 

Mobility 

Wheelchairs and strollers can reach every area in the Children’s Museum. For visitor convenience, a standard elevator is available. Most exhibits are fully accessible and full of learning opportunities for every visitor.
