Hamilton Children's Museum (Gage Homestead)

Discover three interactive galleries – a ship for sailing, a dock for fishing, and a galley kitchen to feed your crew – and participate in an outdoor scavenger hunt for the whole family. Housed in an 1875 farmhouse in beautiful Gage Park, this museum was once home to the Gage family (early Hamilton settlers). Crafts will be available in the activity centre.
