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!

We took my two year old there. He wasnt intetested in much. What my daughter and i observed was It looked fun but the place is already beat. There are not enough of props for the areas where the kids play and create. The water area is unsupervised: therefore leaving things a mess and the floor very wet. There are... More

We tend to visit once a year. This year the concrete jungle out back had been turned into a mini golf. This is a welcome improvement. Also, the "fishing" area is now a pirate ship, again much better. Everything seemed in better repair also (though the left crew boat is still broken). Note: our 14 yo is now 5'4" and... More

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.
