We received a family membership to the museum for Christmas and have used it regularly since then. Our daughter is now 20 months old. Lots of stuff there is over her head for now but she still loves it! It's not really like a museum, more like a giant play area. It has toys like giant foam tinker toys, magna... More

Our kids (3 and 1) loved the Greensboro Children's Museum. The museum is a little on the small side, compared to others we have been to, but they made a great use of space and our kids had a blast. The designated "tot spot" for kids under 2 was great for our 1 year old and featured plenty to keep... More

My granddaughter loves to go here. She gets so excited as she shops for her groceries, takes them over to the little house where she whipped up her pretend meal! Of course she has to visit all of the stops from the pizza shop where she bakes her special pie for daddy, delivers mail from the mini post office, and... More

So helpful to read your review that this place is too expensive for those receiving government assistence. I will be sure to avoid this place and judgemental patrons such as you.

Awesome museum! We took our 15 month-old son and he loved it!! There are some neat exhibits and it's very interactive. We especially loved the toddler area that's just for kids two and under.

This museum is mostly for very small children. I took my children here when they were all around 5. They had a blast! It was difficult to keep up all of them. Take a packed lunch and let them have a ball. Take your camera.

We were traveling through and I took my daughters (8 yo) to visit as a way to stretch out legs. It was small but had some great attractions and the kids had a blast. They loved the post office and the plane. Great value for the price!!!

Creative and hours of fun for the little (2-12 years) crowd. Can be a bit expensive for those not receiving the benefits of government largesse...but the kids don't care about all that.

We took my 6 year old daughter and 3 year old nephew to the GCM today. I loved all the different play areas, especially the real vehicles that kids can access. I do think that the place is under staffed (the staff that was there were very kind and great with kids) because some of the stations could have been... More

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
