I nanny a 1 year old girl & we decided to venture to the Children's Museum one day. Although there is a lot for the kids to do a majority of it involves imaginative play. There is a small area for younger children but it is small. I will bring her back when she's a little older but for now... More

My family and I loved our time at the Greensboro Children's Museum. We loved the aquarium part so much we stayed there most of the day. The Zoo section is awesome and my youngest son still talks about the live tigers we saw!!!

The children's museum provides hours of fun, imaginative, interactive play for kids. It was the perfect afternoon for our grandchildren, who loved the pizza kitchen, the trains, and the fire truck the very most. I highly recommend it!

My in-laws always take my 2 young sons here when they come into town. My boys love it! The city vehicles are a HUGE hit!

Great place my 4 year old loved it! On the other hand it's really not meant for kids over 7 I would say. My older kids didn't have much fun. :)

My 3 1/2 year old grandson remembered this from 2013 when he visited. He asked to go back to the "firetruck" and the "train"; we knew exactly where he wanted to go. He said it was "fun, fun, fun!"

Kids can run around the relatively compact museum without losing their parents, only one way in and out so no chance of them escaping, giving parents a chance to take a breath. Outdoor Edible Garden area closed in the Winter but for little ones who are fascinated with chickens and rabbits there are a couple of them out back. But... More

This place has it all. Where was it when I was a kid? Kids get to climb into real airplanes, fired trucks, police cars and trucks. They even have an doctors office with nursery . I think my wife and I had just as much fun as our little one. We took that opportunity to introduce our little one into... More
