Our first visit with our grandkids ages 8, 7 and 3 and they loved it. It didn't look like much at first but there were surprises at each and every turn. They had a blast climbing the circular dome as you first walk in. All except the little one. He had a hard time maneuvering the tiny spaces. It was... More

There is a lot to see a do. Kids of varying ages all loved it. We enjoy going! It's worth it to get a membership if you plan to go a few times a year.

The Delaware Children's Museum advertises "building imaginative minds" and it certainly does this. There is a large variety of rooms with different activities for children to do at their own pace. It is a safe, clean environment and keeps their interest for 1 to 2 hours. The admission is reasonable ($8.75) with under 12 months free. They are closed on... More

I visited this children's museum twice, once for a private room birthday party, who's reasonably priced package included pizza, juice, paper goods and staff supervised educational games. The museum has fun and challenging interactive play stations, that are both age appropriate, fascinating in concept and design, and entertaining for us elders as well! However, the museum's play areas are located... More

I'm a nanny, and I took two boys ages two and five to this adorable museum. I wanted to take them because it was a rainy day I've never been there before and it's so much fun. There is an art center also where the kids can paint and do coloring. And then they also have this big gigantic looks... More

My toddler had a blast! They have so many activities for toddlers up to adults. It is well worth the visit for all those mom and dads trying to figure out something to do with your little ones.

I really liked the DCM! my sister and I took our kids; a 5yo, 2yo, and 5mo. There was so many activities! We spent a great deal of time in each exhibit exploring and learning. The 2yo (boy) loved all of the slides; the 5yo especially loved the pirate story time and treasure hunt. She also liked the speedway that... More

I don't know why people gave it a bad review. My 5 year old loved this place. I have been to a few children's museums around the country. Though, this one seems a little older, it still has a lot to do and she had fun. And that is all that matters!

Went on Saturday May 9th and arrived around 10:30am. I love that they have free parking there. The price was about $9 per person which I thought was totally reasonable for what they had there. I've been to many children's museums and this was the least crowded one i've been to. Very happy that they had free parking. There was... More

My son enjoys coming here and playing in the different exhibits (especially the water table), but I am less than impressed. It's a good place to get out of the sun in the summer or cold in the winter, and there is enough to occupy the kids for an hour or two; however, there is just so much unfulfilled potential... More
