The best way I can review this museum is to tell you that our kids are homeschooled because we travel with world with them, so normal school would not work. One of their favorite activities is visiting science / kids museums in whatever city we may be in. Without any doubt, the Greensboro Children's Museum is one of our kid's... More

My kids have been going since they were babies, and they really have something for everyone at the Children's Museum. It's ideal to take older relatives with you because there's not that much walking, and there's chairs and benches for them to sit as we move along in the museum. It's great for a rainy day, or a hot day... More

My son has been begging to go since the kindergarten fair that was held there before he registered. So I decided to make a day of it. Kids literally spent 5 hours playing, bouncing from the mail room, to the full sized vehicles (fire truck, police car, transfer truck, ambulance, and race car, yes full sized but stripped and fixed...

though our grandchildren come from Large metropolitan areas and have frequented many large parks like Disney, they all love to go here. Make sure you play and make believe with them rather than just observe or you will miss out.

My 6 year old cried when we left so obviously it was a good time. She loved the Theatre, the post office, and the grocery store the best!!

This is a nice children's museum. Fairly typical although a bit larger than most community ones we have been too. Some very nice vehicles, truck, firetruck, NASCAR stock car, ambulance, mail truck, police car etc, that kids could climb in and out of, even a plane cockpit. Lots of interactive things for kids to play with. I would say 8-9... More
