“A great time!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

Both my 4 year old daughter (who loves to play pretend) and my 11 month old son (who loves to explore) had a BLAST at the children's museum. My son got tired after about an hour and a half of playing but my daughter didn't even want to leave after 3 1/2 hours! She especially enjoyed the teddy bear hospital and the fishing boat. She also made a pinwheel craft and had dun with that. My son loved the fine motor manipulation wall and the bottom level of the treehouse that was just his size. We would highly recommend this activity for young children.

“What a nice surprise!”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

What a great place! The kids didn't want to leave. This is a perfect spot for the kids to play and learn while burning off some energy.

“Overall priced extremely small”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

Very small. The size of an average living room. Very over priced for what few things are there to do. Not very clean.

“Fun Time for Young Kids!”
Reviewed June 1, 2011

While in the Outer Banks in May 2011, we found a great new place for young kids. The Children at Play Museum was an opportunity for them to learn through hands-on activities designed for young children. My daughters (ages 4 and 2) enjoyed fishing from the wooden boat, using rods with magnets to catch pretend fish. They also loved the play kitchen - as well as the mock submarine and princess dress costumes.

Thursday mornings the museum features guest speakers and activities. The week we went featured members of NEST (Network for Endangered Sea Turtles). The group took the kids on a pretend sea turtle walk, read them a story about sea turtles, and then showed a video of hatching sea turtles on the beach. The kids loved it!

The museum is not big - but offered enough for our kids to remain entertained for 1-2 hours. Most kids appeared under the age of 5.

Admission is good for an entire day - so go early and you can always return again later that same day.
