Good times roll at the Greensboro Children’s Museum!

My 5 years old daughter loved this place! She made me promise we will come back to Greensboro just so she can play there again…

The Greensboro Children’s Museum is located downtown, across from the public library. Admission is only $6 (free for kids under 1), however you can get in for just $3 every Friday evening 5 – 8PM.

Kids can climb on board a real fire engine

Lets go, lets go, lets go! There is a fire going on!

The museum has a plethora of fun, hands-on exhibits geared at children younger than 10 (although I had as much fun as she did…)

Kids can’t get enough playing at the:
• Real fire engine, police car, NASCAR car, mail truck
• Miniature train with a steam-engine locomotive
• Doctor office and nursery
• Grandma’s house and kitchen
• Performance stage and TV station
• Fresh super-market and oven-fire pizza restaurant

While in Greensboro make sure to visit the super cool, wildly fun Natural Science Center where dinosaurs come to live! Their Animal Discovery Zoo is one of the best small size zoo I have ever seen.
