Hamilton Civic Museums


Hours of entertainment for kids and adults alike!
Explore five National Historic Sites, a children's museum, community museums, and more than 150 annual events, exhibits and workshops.

Visit Dundurn Castle, the magnificent home of Sir Allan Napier MacNab, one of Canada's first premiers. Discover mid-19th-century Hamilton on your tour of more than 40 rooms on three floors. Experience life in a grand country home for the MacNab family and the servants working below stairs.

Battlefield House (Gage Homestead), built in 1796, captures the way of life during the early 19th century. It is located on 32 acres of park land linked to the Bruce Trail, Canada's oldest and longest footpath. Come and visit!

The Hamilton Children's Museum invites young visitors to stretch their imagination as they touch, build and experiment in a friendly, child-focused setting. Home to interactive, hands-on galleries, the museum encourages learning through self-directed play. Current gallery exhibits take their inspiration from Hamiltonā€™s natural landscape and include the Summers Theatre Stage, Building Gallery, and Ship Gallery.
