Welcome!

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!

The Children's Museum of Wilmington is thrilled to present our 3rd Annual Character Event in the beautiful gazebo gardens of Long Leaf Park, on Saturday, March 20th.

This event has sold out but we are seeking area businesses and organizations who are interested in becoming a character sponsor. This is a great opportunity to get your name in front of the families of young children.
