YachtVenture 2015 Jammie Jam Museum Facing

Where Children Play to Learn and Grownups Learn to Play!

The Pirate Ship's Cannon is a beloved staple at The Children's Museum of Wilmington. Unfortunately, the cannon no longer fires due to many years of “hard battle” and usage. When children come to the Museum they are excited to play and explore! We never want to hinder that experience and absolutely hate shutting down an exhibit due to damages. We want all visitors to experience the magic of the pirate ship including the cannon. Please help us restore the cannon!
