The Canadian Children’s Museum allows children to see how people in Canada and other countries live. At this museum, children and their parents can roam through an International Village and visit homes from areas such as India, Indonesia and Mexico.
Don’t forget to join our Ottawa with Kids Facebook group. We are all in this together.
The Canadian Museum of Civilization is now the Canadian Museum of History.
To which I earn a small commission, at zero cost to you!
In each home, children will find hands-on artifacts such as clothing and toys that are relevant to that home’s particular location in the world.
From the colourful International Village, children can then explore a desert pyramid, stroll through a bustling Market Bazaar and help to unload a cargo ship at a busy Port of Entry.
If you’re looking to show the little ones a bit more culture, head to the historic Fairmont Château Laurier hotel for its sophisticated Afternoon Tea service after your museum visit. Served in the hotel’s famous Zoé’s Lounge, the Fairmont offers a “Little Prince and Princess Tea” service that is complete with a choice of hot chocolate or tea as well as mini tea sandwiches, a cupcake, and a fruit tartlet.
