Pretty outdated and with broken toys, that could be easily tossed or replaced/fixed, rather than just sitting there. Same for the outdoor area: it looks old and desperately needs a good remake. Throughout the museum, there are things that can't be touched or aren't accessible...More

We brought my daughter here while visiting Wilmington and she had an absolute blast. We could barely tear her away from one exhibit to see the next she was having such a great time. There's an aquatic themed exhibit, a train set, a grocery store,...More

Took our grandchild there (age 2) and she loved it. We were surprised how much they had to do for that age. Definitely a great way to spend some quality time with your kids.

Having small children I frequent many children's museums, but by far this is probably one of the best. It's three floors with various exhibits as well as a yard that is filled with a school bus, spider net for climbing and interactive play. The museum...More
