The museum has many interactive and learning attractions such as a water area where children of all ages can play with the boats and fish as well as learn about physical properties such as tides, locks and rain making. There is an auto mechanic area, craft rooms, climbing and a room which changes activities every few months. The first time... More

I was in Delaware for 3 days on business but brought family along. This was by far one of the highlights of the trip for the kids. Was not that crowded and our kids had a blast!!! If you have 3-4 hours, definitely visit!!!

My boys (3 and 5 years old) had a fun day in the museum and did not want to leave. Are there larger kids museums out there we have been too - yes. But for the cost and ease of getting there, I give the museum a strong review. What gives it an even better review was their service afterwards.... More

My wife, a teacher, and our older son had been here previously with their school. After hearing about it from them, we decided to take both of our sons here on a day off. It reminded me a lot of a smaller version of Philadelphia's Please Touch Museum. Our kids loved it and it wasn't badly priced so will be... More

Took our 2 yr there. It was a rainy day so great to be indoors. Lots to do and see. Could use a little tlc. Some things that were supposed to motorized or animated didn't work. But overall a lot of fun.

Having been to many Children's Museums in my years as a parent, I found this one to be like all of the others. The large climbing ball shown in the picture was very different and my kids loved it, I wish it were a little roomier inside of it so I could have tried it too.

Kids love it! Great membership rates. Keeps the kiddos occupied for hours. Clean and kept up, I have no qualms about letting junior loose here to roam and explore and the staff is most friendly!

Took my two year old there today and he seemed to have fun, especially the water area. Takes about an hour to two hours to go through. The place is easy to find with free, ample, and close parking with a Joe's Crab Shack and Iron Hill Brewery in the same lot. Price is reasonable and felt I got what... More

Great for kids! A bit like the Lookout in Bracknell if you know that! But much more modern! Lots of interactive exhibits in a warehouse space by the river. Check out Joe's Crab Shack next door as it's really great! Reward your adults with a Shark Bite or a Mason Jar Margarita! Please drink responsibly!
