Awesome play space for kids that promises to occupy for hours. Interactive areas include a construction house, a post office, a grocery store, a medical clinic, an arts/craft area, a theatre, a train station, multiple real vehicles for exploring (fire truck, big rig, etc.), a play camping area, and more. Fabulous "outdoor classroom" space features chickens, bunnies, a set of... More

This is a really nice place and a must if you have young children and are in Greensboro. Lots to do, see and it is in a good area.

We've visited many of these hands on kids museums and the one in Greensboro is one of the best kept and most interactive we've seen. It's hands on throughout with many interesting activities and everything was functional. Our twins would get wrapped up in one section alone for over an hour. Big hits were the drama/stage area and the airplane... More

We take our grandchildren there when they are in town. They have reciprocal agreements with a lot of other children's museums around the country.

The children's museum is in downtown Greensboro, but it has ample free parking right beside the museum for visitors. It is right across the street from the main branch of the Greensboro Public Library. We love the fact that there is a special, spacious play area for very little ones that is very safe and gated. The child can crawl... More

We recently went here with daughter Karin and her three year old, Emmett. It is amazing to view the exhibits they have--full size truck cab, fire engine, police car, race car, and part of an airplane, for example. The garden outside is spacious, and patrolled for mice by two working cats. We met Otis, who took time off from his... More

The museum is located in downtown Greensboro opposite the public library. It's not real big, all on one floor. You basically go around a circle to see all of the exhibits, plus there is a garden outside. It may be geared for smaller children but my 9 year old was still able to have fun for a couple of hours.... More

Seems like its good for very young children (under 6) but much older there is not much to offer. Very expensive for a short visit, plan not to go back

Learning through play. Not enough of that in schools anymore. Here a child can climb into the cab of a Semi Truck and pretend to be a truck driver, or fly a jumbo jet, or be a railway engineer, or run a post office, or be a general contractor on a construction project, or be a chef in a commercial...

This is a great place for children of all ages. Keep in mind, however, that if you have young (under 2) children, you probably shouldn't go on the weekend since there are school aged kids then. I like to going during the weekday. They also have specials for after 4pm. Lots to do...I even enjoy it! The only thing I... More
