We're glad you're here!
The Children's Museum of Wilmington is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in downtown Wilmington, NC. We offer a safe and fun place where children up to age 10 can actively learn through creative and imaginative play. We hope to see you soon!
We are excited to announce we have reached our $25,000 Endowment Match Challenge Goal. Need and Margaret Barclay graciously established The Children's Museum of Wilmington Endowment Fund several years ago. In 2018, they very generously offered the $25,000 match challenge. "Thoughtful and unwavering donors like Ned and Margaret are the cornerstone of the Museum's financial success, we are so thankful to have them as supporters," states Jim Karl, CMoW Executive Director.
Thank you to all of our generous supporters who helped make the 10th Annual YachtVenture Fundraiser a success! Together we raised funds virtually through sponsorships, raffle tickets, the silent auction and donations. All proceeds and donations go directly towards giving children in our community a safe, inspiring environment where they can play to learn. We are still taking donations!
YachtVenture Was A Success!
Check Out Our Newest Exhibit - Wellness Way!
We are so excited to share with you our new exhibit - Wellness Way! Sponsored by Wilmington Health, this exhibit has three main focuses- infant care, anatomy, and wellness. Through role playing with dolls, not only will children learn the basics of infant care, they will improve their social, language, and motor skills as well as learn empathy and responsibility. This exhibit aims to educate children about anatomy and how systems in our body help keep us healthy. Children will also learn how antibodies and white blood cells work together to fight off any germs that may have entered their body with the interactive maze.
