'THEMUSEUM' hosts a monthly event called 'Maker Club' where adults and their children can learn how to work with their hands. While many museums host workshops for children, these sessions are often limited to small crafts and other basic art projects. Maker Club goes beyond these types of workshops to teach children how to use tools that are often reserved for adults.

Maker Club is a monthly event held at Toronto's THEMUSEUM. During these sessions, parents and children between the ages of eight and 15 are invited to work with tools such as saws, hammers, glue guns and even soldering irons. Using these tools, families learn how to make items such as compressed air rockets, wearable electronics and mini marshmallow launchers. The sessions are designed to inspire creativity and give children the confidence to work with different types of tools.

Maker Club is likely to appeal to families who are looking for a more-hands on museum experience that helps children learn valuable skills
