Thanks for visiting! The Children's Museum of Wilmington or CMoW, as we like to call it, is a non-profit organization located in downtown Wilmington, NC. We offer hands-on interactive programs and exhibits for kids ages 0-10.
We hope to see you soon!
Help Secure the Future of the Museum!
Ned and Margaret Barclay graciously established The Children's Museum of Wilmington Endowment Fund many years ago. They have recently and very generously offered a $25,000 match challenge. Donate today and your gift will go twice as far! You will help make a difference in the lives of children in the Greater Wilmington area for many years to come.
