What We Do
The Children's Museum of Wilmington's mission is to provide a welcoming and engaging environment that promotes hands-on art, science, and literacy-focused learning for children and their caregivers.
We have been serving the greater Wilmington community for over 22 years. The Museum welcomes over 55,000 visitors annually to explore over 17,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space. We offer weekly educational programming for children, summer camps, we host over 60 field trips and 50 birthday parties annually. 20% of all admissions are provided at free or reduced cost to serve economically disadvantaged families, military families, and seniors. In addition to our in-house programming, we provide outreach throughout the community.
Our Bright Minds grant-funded program engages 1st graders in Title 1 schools with hands-on STEM activities. We also reach over 300 pre-K students annually through our Leading to Reading literacy program which is designed to inspire children through fun, hands-on, learning activities.
