One of the best children's museum we have ever visited. Many rooms to play in with different themes and activities. We could have easily spent the entire day here exploring with our three year old.

I've been here about five times over the last five years. The first few times it was great. All the displays worked and were in good shape. Now, the place is showing some age. Several key interactive displays are broken (Pirate ship that shoots rubber balls) or looking really worn. I think the entry fee was $12 per kid which would be fine if the place was kept up.

The Children's Museum was a nice outing during our stay in Wilmington. I haven't been to a children's museum that really blew me away - most of them have the same exhibits - grocery store, diner, puppet show theater, etc - and it was par for the course with this one. The space room was pretty cool; it had black lights and constellations on the walls and ceiling and a ton of glow necklaces inside. There was a center with colored water that you could mix in test tubes and make different colors and it occupied the kids for a little while. $32 for all of us wasn't that bad, and it was raining, but it would have been nice to see some more local exhibits since we were visiting from New York.

This is another great value and fun for children-a hands on museum that allows the children to interact.

Went there as a family trip in August 2011. My 2 year old, her dad and myself. We had a nice time overall they do special events everday. Although there was a large amount of things that didnt work overall our daughter had a good time
