A child explores a cave's rock formations, stumbling upon drawings left by humans eons ago. Not far away, another child unearths something millions of years older—dinosaur fossils. For more than three decades, the London Children's Museum has stimulated imaginations through such interactive exhibits, helping children learn through play instead of fact memorization or encyclopedia ingestion. Stretched across three floors, nine permanent exhibits couple with travelling displays to explore everything from jellyfish to space exploration and 1880s schoolhouses. To extend this educational and recreational reach, the museum offers field trips, educational programs, and premium special events for preschoolers through 12-year-olds. They also offer memberships for frequent visitors, which come with benefits such as discounted pricing for birthday parties and day camps.

The Museum of Ontario Archaeology takes visitors on an enlightening tour through the past 11,000 years of human occupation of Southwestern Ontario, based on evidence found in site excavations and Tim Hortons explorations. The museum also shares its privileged plot with the Lawson Prehistoric Iroquoian Village, the site where Neutral Iroquoians constructed their cribs in the 16th century A.D. The village is Canada's only on-going excavation and reconstruction of a prehistoric village and is home to numerous artifacts extracted from their earthen wombs by OB-archaeologists. Inside the museum, visitors can check out the feature exhibit "Forgotten Women - "Dreaming Ourselves Alive Again", an artistic amalgamation of photography, texts, movies, and poetry about missing and murdered Canadian aboriginal women, created by the museum's curator Dr. Gloria Alvernaz Mulcahy.

Humes Horse and Carriage Rides furnishes parades, weddings, and seasonal sightseers with powerful teams of horses that haul carriages along celebratory jaunts. In the autumn, the horses follow a creek through the multihued foliage to a clearing, where passengers can disembark to roast hot dogs and marshmallows over a bonfire. When snow blankets the ground during the winter months, the team swaps its carriage out for a sleigh and makes tracks for a wooded gully, where children can pull each other on a sled while they dream of one day becoming a professional clydesdale.

Delaware Speedway unleashes a feast for the eyes and ears in the form of zooming stock cars and roaring engines around its half-mile oval track, pitting visitors face-to-face with the action in its unique amphitheatre-style seating. The speedway’s history stretches back 60 years to misty memories of the 1950s, when rock 'n' roll blared from radios and stock cars sported glistening, motor-oiled pompadours. Today, families gather on the grassy lawn or in the stands, cheering on stock car championships, Junior Racing League cups, and truck races as chariots fly into a colourful blur before their eyes. As they take in the stimulating sights and sounds of a day at the races, they fuel up with pizza, burgers, and hot dogs at the concession stand or refresh themselves with a frosty beer at the beer patio.

On Fridays and Saturdays, the unassuming facade of Bowlerama Royale melts away as cosmic lights slice across lanes and a virtual DJ mixes beats. Cosmic bowling lasts from 9 p.m. until close, and often serves as the backbone of birthday or corporate parties fueled by on-site catering and flasks of milk snuck in by the boss. Bowlers can also extend their craving for competition by joining leagues. In between frames and tries for turkeys, patrons can head to the lounge, where dartboards, pool tables, arcade games, and an 8-foot TV screen await additional bouts of friendly competition. Beer, wine, and spirits flow freely at the bar and snack bar, alongside savoury appetizers and casual fare.
