The Greensboro Children's Museum is a must-visit for kids toddler to 8. They offer a world to explore and use the imagination. A real firetruck, real ambulance, police car, real airplane cockpit, and a real Volvo truck make up the transportation area. Life-size building blocks offer the opportunity to do some creative building. A communications area, theater, life size play... More

My littles loved this museum! Ideal for ages toddler to 10/11ish, this museum offered varied activities from an enclosed play area for the babes to my older's favorite, the Old Town Players (a stage/theater complete with sound effects, effect lighting, tons of costumes, and stadium seating!). The museum offers several full sized vehicles for the kids to get in and... More

Thee is something here for all ages. When my son was younger he really enjoyed the fire trucks and trains. Now the airplane and tractor trailer are his favorites.

My preschool age children enjoy the children's museum, with a hands-on approach to learning and fun. The annual membership is worth the investment. Great family fun!

Our older child was performing in the middle school All State chorus at the coliseum so this was the choice of entertainment for our six year old while he was practicing. It was awesome. My husband was so impressed he has come home and constructed a tepee in our backyard after seeing the one here. :)

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

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
