Time to Explore

Wonder. Explore. Create.

Be curious.

Curio is NOW OPEN!!!!.

We are a boutique Children’s Museum with an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M).

Occupying 4000 square feet, our space is organized into a handful of exploration ‘hubs’, each with a curated collection of exhibits, toys and resources designed to inspire creative development and child led play.

Curio is offering families in the Simcoe County area a high quality S.T.E.A.M. exploration hub that will invite and inspire young learners with stimulating stations designed to entertain for hours.

Come and be curious with us!

Exploration Hub

Let them play

Play is at the heart of children’s learning.

Here at Curio children will be exposed to a variety of play based exhibits; pretend, exploratory, guided and free. Take your time to go at your leisure, playing along side children or give them the space to explore on their own.

“The gift of play is the way it teaches us how to deal with the unexpected” Alison Gopnik, 2016

Exploration and Collaboration

Our exploration hubs are designed to encourage a variety of ways to play.  Work on your own or with a friend to link questions to answers, to create without boundaries, to explore the world you want to see.

Now Open

It’s said that “it takes a village” to raise a child. Making this project happen will take the support of the community. We are on the hunt for forward thinking companies and individuals who want to play an integral role in supporting children’s learning and development right here in Simcoe County. Reach out to us to see how you can help!
