  • It's always so much fun to go the Museum! There are many different things to do there, and the exhibits are super cool!  more »
  • Visited with a 10 and 13 year old. Everyone found something interesting, including the parents, who enjoyed the display of 'old' computer tech. The kids enjoyed playing the original games - Space inva...  more »

  • The Museum is a wonderful resource in downtown Kitchener. The exhibitions that come in are not always something I'm interested in, but if you have children the first two floors of the museum offer excellent play and learning opportunities. Currently they have a video game display that is interactive and lots of fun (and nostalgic), as well as an interactive art installation that my daughters enjoyed. You can bring a lunch and enjoy it in the main room, build with blocks, dance with light and shadows, and explore the fish in the aquarium.
  • This place is great for kids. It’s worth getting a membership. There’s a sensory room for the little ones and their video game exhibit is worth checking out. It’s on till May. I like that they have a member appreciation event with Santa Claus for the kids. My recommendations for improvements are: a photographer during Santa with a donation option would have been a good idea. Plus it can give a photographer exposure and wouldn’t cost much to organize. Also, if the museum is closed to the public for special events then I recommend a special notice on the main page of the website that gets updated regularly (with specific closures instead of a general notice) as well as social media notifications.
  • It's a small museum of computer and medium art. Because it is in Waterloo and has such high profile domain name (museum.ca), I expected lot more than it actually offers. The museum is more like a casual digital recreational hall targeted for young kids and families. It's a good place to spend an afternoon for family fun but don't expect high end art and display here.
  • Really enjoyed bringing my younger children here. It is a very interactive place with lots to do. A great indoor activity. Not very expensive especially if you go on Wednesdays. They have an area that is appropriate for infants and younger toddlers that is full of quiet sensory items. It is very clean. The main area of the first floor is great for kids to build with life size Lego blocks and large soft padded blocks of different shapes. My kids really loved it. The second floor has lots of interactive play stations for preschool and school aged kids. Be aware there is a water based station that is very popular and while they provide smocks your kids will likely get wet. You can bring your own food and there is a microwave and tables to eat at. I recommend parking at the parkade that is connected to the museum by a walkway.
  • Great exhibits that are creative, mind blowing and educational. They have on hand crafts that instructors help with for kids of all ages and more educational classes such as wood working and circuitry that change week to week. Every experience my kids and I have had has been amazing!!!!
