Children’s Museum of Wilmington holding annual Fall Festival this weekend

Families are in for a treat this Saturday as the Children’s Museum of Wilmington dons the colors of fall and transforms into a wonderland of seasonal activities. Jessie Goodwin, the executive director of the museum, shared insights into the upcoming Fall Festival with the Good Morning Carolina Team.

The Children’s Museum, which has been serving the community for 26 years, has a mission to provide a welcoming and engaging environment fostering hands-on learning in science, art, and literacy. The Fall Festival is one of the many programs the museum offers to diversify its educational offerings.

The event encompasses a variety of autumn-themed activities, aligning with the season of change. Visitors can expect activities like pumpkin slime, invisible ink art, and the intriguing “elephant toothpaste,” all designed to explore physical and chemical changes in a playful manner.

Goodwin emphasized the museum’s commitment to keeping the festival fresh and exciting each year. A “thankfulness tree” provides families with a platform to share expressions of gratitude, and a surprise sweet treat awaits attendees.

The fall festival caters to children within the age range of zero to ten, aligning with the museum’s primary focus. The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., with tickets priced at $10 per visitor. Museum members enjoy a reduced rate of $5. Tickets can be purchased online, and walk-ups are accepted, although availability may be limited.

The Children’s Museum of Wilmington has also partnered with Power Up Therapy, an organization providing occupational therapy services for children and parents in Wilmington.
