If you are interested in indoor activities, you can get plenty of options in Toronto to have a good and interesting time. Here goes a list of 10 fun activities to do indoors from my perspective and experience. 

1. Visit a Museum, Science Center or Aquarium

A great family fun destination for all ages has to be an aquarium or Toronto museums with educational behind-the-scenes tours and all the fun one can expect and definitely one of the most fun indoor activities in Toronto.

The perfect visit for young and budding minds is a Science Center that opens up a world of learning through touchable specimens for kids, hands-on galleries that showcase the natural history, magnificent displays of earth’s treasures, ancient artifacts, Egyptian mummies, and more.

2. A Small Tour of Casa Loma

Here one can spend all the time finding the secret passages, walking the underground tunnel to the stables, climbing up the winding stairs to the tower, and exploring this iconic house that was built years ago.

3. Indoor Trampoline Parks 

These are the best options for a little memorable fun time at the most affordable ranges, where everyone can enjoy and get their adrenaline running.

4. Indoor Playgrounds or Play Centers

These playhouses with climbers, ride-on toys and slides, playhouses, castles and clubhouses, a ball pit, a small trampoline, a craft table, dress-up costumes and so much more will provide anyone with the most enjoyable time.

A drop off childcare along with holiday and birthday parties and kids/parents programs comes with these amazing playhouses. They are equipped with a full-size gym, indoor playgrounds, and additional party rooms for kids to have the best time possible.
