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!

Pizza Putt is Postponed

We apologize for the inconvenience, but due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Pizza Putt has been postponed. We will provide reschedule information, and options for current ticket holders, over the next few weeks as we evaluate our alternatives. Thank you for your understanding!  

We still have slots open for the remainder of our summer camps! Even though the Museum will be closed the first few weeks of July, we are still able to offer summer camp experiences. We have redesigned our 2020 summer camps to align with local, state, and CDC guidelines to provide a safe, play-based learning experience for summer campers. Please note that we have set a maximum enrollment of 10 students in each camp. 

Summer Camp Enrollment is Still Open!
