Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Canadian Automotive Museum (Oshawa)

Family Tested

Hot wheels

This is probably the least interactive museum I have visited but it is the only place where I could feed my son's passion for cars. It is filled with over 60 vehicles from 1898 to 1980 displayed in an authentic car dealership. Memorabilia related to the different periods of vehicles makes it interesting to explore. Kids will think they recognize Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in many of the cars displayed. On the second floor, it's easy to observe the progression from horse carriages to cars. Don't forget to raise your head at the exit. You wouldn't want to miss the vintage red racing car pinned to the ceiling!
