On our 3rd visit to historic Wilmington my daughter and I stopped by theChildren’s Museum.
After some online research I figured it will take us little over an hour to go through all the exhibits.
Well 3 hours later we were still strong into it…
Admission is $8 (free for kids under 1).
The museum is located one block from the awesome Cape Fear Serpentarium and is open 9AM – 5PM (1PM Sundays).
What kids like to do at the museum
Get their hands dirty and create masterpieces. This is one of the better organized and supplied “Arts and Crafts” room I’ve seen.
Be a rock star, play in the glow room and try on many cool outfits.
Drive the magic school bus, climb the Spider Man’s web and play inside the little cottage.
Put on your scientist hat and discover all the wonderful things of Mother Nature.
and the list goes on… play doctor at the Teddy Bear Hospital, test your Circus skills, shop at the supermarket and go camping and kayaking.
