The Canadian Museum of Nature or the ‘dinosaur museum’ as it’s called in our house, is a favourite.
There is a lot of see, a lot of questions to ask and many things to touch and feel.
The new renovations make the museum an outstanding site to see. There are plenty of stairs, but elevators to help with strollers, wheelchairs and those who may have trouble walking the stairs.
There are quiet rooms for breaks, including nursing. There is a cafe available, however, we haven’t used it. You can bring your own food but have to eat it in the designated food area.
Be prepared to spend a lot of time, each level takes a while to complete and that’s a good thing! There are areas where children can play and spend extra imagination time. You will leave there hearing loads of questions and comments about the amazing things they see.
Cost: $25 for the family pass – $10 for adults, $6 per child (tots are free)
Summer hours: 9 am – 5 pm, 8 pm on Thursday and Friday
Special Note: The museum entrance is FREE on Thursdays from 5 pm – 8 pm and all day July 1 for Canada Day
