Ontario’s Family Friendly Activities
A Weekend for Whiz Kids
Bring the kids to Ontario
Yes, kids think museums are boring – but not in Ontario. Feel free to take the kids to Ontario’s many fascinating museums, historic sites and provincial parks.
Open throughout the week, the Miller Museum features interactive activities like Mineral Identification, and presentations like Dinosaurs – an overview of fossils and paleontology, and of course, those Jurassic friends of ours.
Sign up for a guided tour of the museum, and settle into the Best Western hotel in Kingston – less than four kilometers from the Miller Museum of Geology.
For more natural history in Ontario, head to the Petroglyphs Provincial Park in Woodview. Open from May through Thanksgiving, this park is famous for its collection of the most Aboriginal rock carvings in the country – totaling more than 900 petroglyphs.
Get the fascinating story behind this park at the Learning Place Interpretive Centre, and set out into outdoor Ontario for hiking trails, bike paths and wildlife viewing within the Petroglyphs Provincial Park. Check out the 20-minute “The Teaching Rocks” short film in the museum – an ideal way to experience Peterborough.
Another must-see site in Ontario is the Halton County Radial Railway – found just east of Guelph and less than an hour’s drive west from Toronto in the city of Milton. This establishment, first opened in 1972, was put in place to rescue historic streetcars from retirement – meaning the scrapyard – so visitors of Milton may enjoy a ride.
Grab a seat on the historic streetcar for a scenic, two-kilometer ride through southern Ontario – with stops at an ice cream shop in historic Rockwood Station. Step inside the Halton County Radial Railway Museum for a look at photographs, documents and other memorabilia of this enlarged train set.
