This is a super great place for little kids. Probably less than 6-7 years. they have lots of rooms to go and hands on experiences to complete. We were members for years until our little one outgrew it. She never got tired of it!!

Great place to take kids of all ages, especially for grandkids to take grand parents. We go there at least once a year.

This is the second time I took my 3 year old granddaughter to Greensboro Children's Museum. She loved it. There are so many things to keep little minds occupied. There is a make believe grocery store, Novant medical center for budding nurses, doctors, and dentists, construction, separate play area for toddlers, dress up play and stage, post office, art area...

We arrived at the museum late morning. There is a small free parking lot adjacent to the building, but it was full. We parked on the street out front and just fed the meter. When you walk in there is an amazing piece of wall art that makes for a great photo stop. After you pay, when you walk through... More

We visited with my son and his wife and their 2-year-old and 6 month old. Everyone had a great time. In fact, we liked it so much that we stayed for about 90 minutes in the morning, and then after lunch and naps, went back for another 90 minute visit in the afternoon. My son lives in Toronto, and he... More

Took our grandchildren here while visiting from NY. We played for hours, all 6 of us. ( children age 5, age 3 grandparents and parents ) this is such a beautiful, well maintained, creative and fun place. Not crowded at all on a Sunday afternoon. All stations are interactive. The staff circulates to help out and keep sections in order.... More

I reluctantly took my two granddaughters (one almost 12, the other 10) to this museum today, believing that they were too old for such a place. When we spoke to the very helpful man at the ticket counter, he actually called on another employee to show us around some of the exhibits to see if the girls might like them.... More
