I know I can't compare this museum to the Please Touch in Philly, BUT, given the cost to get in and reciprocal benefits with other museums for the yearly membership fee, I think it lacks a lot of amenities and activities.for kids. It's small and get boring after a short period of time. There was a lot of hype around... More

We took our toddler granddaughter and infant grandson. We spent 1.5 hours and could have stayed longer if it weren't for lunch and nap time encroaching. Even though we visited on a Saturday, and it started getting crowded, there seemed to be enough things to play with to keep everyone satisfied.

Not sure where to start but this place needs some help. I first visited the museum (misnomer because the place is a play land not a museum) a few years back and found it to be a great place to take the grandchildren on a winter afternoon. They loved it and I found it to be well done, clean and... More

I knew about the museum when it first opened but had no reason to go. We were on our way to Philadelphia and I thought it would be a great stop. It's very easy to get to from I-95 - two minutes off the highway. There are lots of other things to do as well so you can definitely make... More

We took our kids down to the Riverwalk in Wilmington this weekend, and decided to check out the Delaware Children's Museum. For people from Philadelphia, its like the Please Touch Museum, but smaller, cheaper and with free parking! The kids had a blast. Our guys are 7, 5 and 10 months, and we spent about 2 hours in the museum,... More

My wife and I took our almost 3 year old grandson here. He had been here before. We had not. It was great fun for him as he showed BiBi and BaBu all the things he loves to do. It is a great mixture of hands-on activities -- which are all very diverse. We spent a lot of time in... More

Tokk our 4 year old grand daughter. Overall good experience. Lot of space but number of visitors was way down on a school day. Could acco?odate lots of kids. Did not do classroom activities. Free play only. She had a good time but was frustrated by 3 different items that did not work. Water play or instance was not exciting... More

We arrived at opening. Grandkids went into the studio area and did some artistic activities. Later, went around the museum and had a good time. Area where you can build structures, and racing car were especially fun. They enjoyed the little bikes you can ride too. Restaurants are nearby.

Had previously wanted to take the grand children there. It has plenty to do for the smaller toddlers (ages 2 to 6 probably best) the 8 yr old liked the crawl cage but got bored after awhile.
