What is there to do?

The Delaware Children's Museum is ALL about giving giving kids a place to play, create, learn and discover until their heart's content!

The exhibits within this fun museum are designed just for kids to build imaginative minds through play, math, science and technology based informal learning. 

Delaware Children's Museum encourages informal learning which is when kids learn through their own exploration and activity, as they follow their personal interests and grasp concepts naturally. Also referred to as "playful learning," it's what kids do best!

There are seven thrilling and enthralling huge interactive exhibit rooms that will delight, entertain and ever so subtly educate every age of child.

What exactly does an architect do, or an Engineer? Find out in the Structures where once those hard hats go on, kids can become the builders of the future!

How long can you hang from a chin up bar, and how does the human body work? Fund out in The Power of Me exhibit, complete with activities allowing kids to find out the answers themselves!

ECOnnect allows kids to roll up their sleeves and discover the wonders of nature, and Bank On It shows kids just how money makes the world go round, but more important, how to save it, and how to manage it!

With creative kids flocking to Studio D for an art-filled based experience, and rotating exhibits to top off the fun, it's no wonder kids love Delaware Children's Museum, where the schedule for the day is PLAY!
