I took a 14 yr old, 11 yr old, two 8 yr olds and two nearly-5 yr olds to DCM. This was a repeat visit for all of them (some have been more often than others). We got there just before 11, went for lunch (at Joe's Crab Shack) at about 2 and left at 4. All the kids had... More

A decent children's museum. Got there around one and closed the place. The children were able to do everything and had a great time. The staff was friendly, and the layout was okay. The children enjoyed the waterworks the best.

We took our two grandsons, 22 months old, for a visit to escape the rainy weather. What a wonderful place, especially for young children. The two boys ran from activity to activity, enjoying each one. They really liked the table where you can search for bugs. Another favorite was the transportation room where you could climb on a train, check... More

We went with our boy and girl 3 year old twins. We enjoyed the casual pace, as well as the professinal staff. The kids loved playing and exploring their artful side with the crafts set up and the stations available. I did think it was somewhat expensive for a family of 4 it was over $40.oo and there was not... More

This place is great for kids, especially when there is bad weather. It's a large facility and they offer special events on occasion. Lots of restaurants close by if you need to eat afterwards.

Are you going on a long trip up 95? Do you hate the Delaware traffic? Want to give your kids a chance to stretch their legs somewhere between baltimore and NYC? If you answer yes to any of these questions, i highly recommend the Delaware Children's Museum. You can easily let your kids -- any age up to 10/12 --... More

We went to the museum with our 3 yr old and 4 month old. We went during the week, and it was nice. The main attraction at the time was (may still be) the Wizard of Oz. It was a cute place I think for toddler age through second grade aged children (maybe). There are puzzles, blocks, building activites, and... More

I took my 4 ½ year-old son to visit the museum and specifically to check out the Wizard of Oz traveling exhibit. The Wizard of Oz exhibit was uninspiring. Pieces of the exhibit were broken, missing and/or unplugged. As we traveled throughout the rest of the museum I found that 50% of the displays were broken or missing items. A... More
