  • I have to admit we almost didn't visit the museum based on the reviews but in the end decided to go and I'm glad we did. Agreed that the premises is older and could use an overhaul but it is clear the...  more »

  • As the other have said, the staff are great. They handle the shows well and my son was very entertained. But like others said, the place is in need of some updates. It appears the building has been sold to Fahri who intends on redoing it as office space. I don't blame them for not putting much effort into updates. I am certainly excited to see what is next for the place. They have updated some of the content but there is also a bunch that remains from when I was a child.
  • I was there face painting with "Giggle Time" for their 40th birthday celebration and I have to say "What a great day". The staff are so helpful and knowledgeable. They truly love their job because it shows. Thank you for such a great day. It was my pleasure and joy to participate.
  • Great place for kids to enjoy a nice few hours. We've been twice now. Could use a little more regular cleaning. The building is looking run down. All in all definitely worth a visit.
  • This is one of those, I don't understand the hype places. It's a collection of very run down playrooms, in an old building that has been repurposed for this concept. The staff is awesome, and the concept itself is great, but the place needs a few million dollars to get up to speed. The music room was one giant empty room, with a few drums and an electric piano sitting on the floor. No jokes. If it was $10 for the family plus toddler, cool, but it's like $25 too. Weird.. weird, feel like I must have missed something reading these other reviews.
  • my children loved this place. we went there 5 years ago but still my kids ask me to take them to this place. very informative and fun place for kids of all ages. infact there was lot for us parents to learn and enjoy. ticket was also reasonable. worth taking your kids to this place if you are visiting London, Ontario area.

Where to stay in London

To make the most of sightseeing in London, it's best to stay in the center, as close as possible to the confluence of the city's two rivers. You'll be just a stone's throw from the city's best parks, as well as good entertainment. If you're just passing through and looking for budget accommodations while in transit, look east along Dundas Street--as you approach the airport, you'll find a host of affordable roadside motels. For a more suburban feel--and proximity to the city's biggest mall--head south to White Oaks, where you'll find a cluster of accommodations.
