“We take some of the littles ones EVERY time we are at the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Always something new..... helpful staff, lots for little ones under the age of 6..... by then, probably not interested...... although they have added a Wi area for age 5 and up. We have a grandparent membership so they can go anytime once we pay the yearly fee. A good bargain with 5 grandchildren under the age of 7!

“Great Rainy Day Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I took my grand daughter there on a rainy day to celebrate the end of school. She had a blast and would have stayed all day if she could. They have a boat you can fish from but it was a bit unsafe, so you'll need to watch them on that feature.

“Calling is a "museum" is a stretch....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Having been to the National Museum of Play in Rochester, NY, I was overly disappointed to arrive at this "museum" in Kitty Hawk. It's about the size of a large living room and it's more or less a daycare or romper room. Yes, there are lots of toys and activities and kids love it (kids can play with dirt and love it). Admission was $7 per kid and $5 per adult -- completely overpriced, especially for the adults. I don't really understand the "museum" aspect of it at all. I guess our expectations were too high. Note: we had a great time with the kids in the park on the other side of the museum with a bunch of other families who were equally disappointed. After the playground, we headed over to Jockey's Ridge State park and played in the sand dunes so it wasn't a complete waste of time.

“Great Children's Museum in the OBX”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Something to do on a cold or rainy day! Lots of great people. Children under 87 years old will have a blast. Doesn't look like much, but everytime I leave my 5 and 8 year old never want to leave.
