CMoWS is smaller than other children's museums in NC but what it lacks in size it makes up for in cool attractions. My kids love the scarf blower tubes (not sure what they're officially called) and the building room with tons of large foam block as well as smaller building units. Another winner is the huge beanstalk kids can climb up from the first floor to the second floor. It makes me queasy to watch even though it's fully netted and safe but my son loves it. The only negative I can think of is that it can get way too crowded on weekends and when school groups visit. I avoid it during those times.
