Children's Museum of Wilmington
Ranked #37 of 125 things to do in Wilmington
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Every time we visit the Children's Museum we have a great time, but we also have to hear someone complaining about how expensive it is!! BUY a Membership!!! It pays for itself in 4 visits for a family of 4. We go at least once a month, and we have been going for 3 years. It does not get old because they add new exhibits each year and they offer fun activities all the time. The staff is amazing there and they do great things in our community. Support the museum and become a member!

Suited for kids 5 and under, not much to do and was not a clean place. Confusing to navigate and had very little education value.

This is NOT a museum. It is a big play place. If you're looking for a historical- educational place for kids... this is not it. It is simply a play area. Some of the rooms are fun, but it is very difficult to get past the fact that it is dirty! The toys look like they have never been sanitized/ cleaned. They all have a dark film over them!!! The floor was also sticky and seemed as though it was never swept, let alone, mopped. And although there are parts that were very cute and enjoyable, it was hard to get past the fact that it was so dirty. Will not return. Take your kids to the Kure beach aquarium instead.

A few months ago we took our daughter to the Wilmington Children Museum. Since that visit she has not stopped mentioning her desire to return and visit "the big bear in the wheel chair!"

We've since been back with no less excitement, laughter, and fun than the first visit.

The Wilmington Children's Museum is now on our "must visit in Wilmington" list.

We are a bit spoiled with the marbles kids museum near our home, but this was more than twice the price and no cheaper for those under 2! There were many areas but a lot were dirty, not well maintained. Pretty empty when we first got there so kind of strange. Overakl the kids has fun, but I would rank it below most the ones we have been to.
