We are THEMUSEUM - oneword, UPPERCASE. We are a new kind of museum - one of ideas and experiences. No dusty objects, no collections, and no velvet ropes here. We are dedicated to presenting fresh, relevant cultural content from around the globe in unique and interactive ways that intersect art, science, culture and technology. We are a premier cultural destination and a hub for creative thinking and inspired play. From Andy Warhol to Jane Goodall to Titanic to Yoko Ono, THEMUSEUM is the only museum around that is bold enough to feature such a wide range of cultural content under one roof. We offer a diverse array of exhibitions, programs, and events for children, youth, families and adults guaranteed to awe, inspire and enlighten all audiences. Featuring five floors and 55,000 square feet of interactive exhibitions, THEMUSEUM has a little bit of everything...and a whole lot of imagination, education, and good ol' fashion family fun. The public hours for THEMUSEUM are subject to change. Please visit our website for updates.

Great place for adults as well as kids. Great kids play area. The features in the Museum are always changing. Closed for renovations until tomorrow I believe. Check themuseum.ca for upcoming attractions.

This museum is housed in a former department store in downtown Kitchener, and the history of that place and how it became a museum would've been an interesting display. But they didn't do that. The museum seemed to be more geared for children than adults....More
