Welcome to The Children's Museum of Wilmington!
Welcome to The Children's Museum of Wilmington, a downtown destination dedicated to helping children learn while they play. Everything we do at CMoW is for the children! We offer hands-on interactive programs and exhibits for kids ages 0-10.
Here's a sample of what you can do!
Size: 17,000 square-feet
Eye Catcher: Ahoy Wilmington! features a pirate ship where kids can pretend to steer the ship and swab the deck.
Permanent Mainstay: The Dimock, Weinburg & Cherry Toothasaurus Dental Exhibit keeps kids up-to-date on dental health as they explore a child-friendly dental office.
Don't Miss: The Publix and Publix Charities Community Market where kids can role-play as customers or staff.
Hidden Gem: In the Forest Friends Toddler Treehouse, kids four-and-under can host a tea party, slither down slides, and even ride an elephant.
Pro Tip: While the Museum doesn't have a snack bar, patrons are welcome to bring food and eat in designated areas. We are also just steps away from local, family-friendly restaurants.
New: Explore the ocean or paint in 3D with the nCino Virtual Reality Experience. Kids can also immerse themselves in all things animal at the Pet Supplies Plus Animal Alley exhibit.
