Great place to let the kids do what they want. They have all types of special events that the kids love. We go here all the time and if you get the yearly pass it is worth it.

We met my brother and his wife and daughter (3 1/2 years) at the museum while we were on our vacation in N. Myrtle Beach. Our daughter (almost 4 at the time) and my niece really enjoyed the museum. There was a lot to keep them engaged and we were interacting with them to show them how to do some... More

We had a great time. There was a ton of stuff to do and it was all really fun for the kids and grown ups too. We would return if we are in the area again. Staff was very friendly.

Floors, toys, exhibits were dusty and dirty, looked as if not cleaned in months. Not really worth the trip even if you'thumderstorm as we were. I am leaving as soon as the rain stops.

Every time we visit the Children's Museum we have a great time, but we also have to hear someone complaining about how expensive it is!! BUY a Membership!!! It pays for itself in 4 visits for a family of 4. We go at least once a month, and we have been going for 3 years. It does not get old... More

Suited for kids 5 and under, not much to do and was not a clean place. Confusing to navigate and had very little education value.

This is NOT a museum. It is a big play place. If you're looking for a historical- educational place for kids... this is not it. It is simply a play area. Some of the rooms are fun, but it is very difficult to get past the fact that it is dirty! The toys look like they have never been sanitized/... More

A few months ago we took our daughter to the Wilmington Children Museum. Since that visit she has not stopped mentioning her desire to return and visit "the big bear in the wheel chair!" We've since been back with no less excitement, laughter, and fun than the first visit. The Wilmington Children's Museum is now on our "must visit in... More

We are a bit spoiled with the marbles kids museum near our home, but this was more than twice the price and no cheaper for those under 2! There were many areas but a lot were dirty, not well maintained. Pretty empty when we first got there so kind of strange. Overakl the kids has fun, but I would rank... More

This is a great spot in the heart of downtown Wilmington for Families to take their kiddos to learn and play. Stop in the Arts and Crafts room for a quick project - then move on to the Pirate ship.
