The Children's Museum of Wilmington stimulates children's imagination, curiosity and love of learning. Our Museum celebrates the joys of childhood by providing magical and playful experiences for children of all ages and their adult company.

Our goal is for all visitors to learn amazing things about themselves and the world in which we live through informal, playful, hands-on and child-directed experiences. In our warm and inviting environment, children find ample opportunity to explore and better understand art, science, culture and more through engaging exhibits and weekly programs.

We are located in beautiful, historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina at 116 Orange Street.
The Children's Museum of Wilmington depends upon donations to continue its mission of providing hands-on activities where children actively learn through creative play.

The Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and you can help!
