Greensboro Children's Museum, Greensboro

(4.5/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Today, more than 400 children’s museums throughout the United States break the rules of traditional institutions by encouraging visitors to touch, talk, have fun and learn. In a children’s museum, the audience is most important, not the objects. The exhibits, however, are catalysts for questions, exploration and discovery and the entire experience is a playground for the mind.

  • We took our grandchildren there and they loved it. The price is reasonable and seems to be quite secure. Be prepared to spend a couple of hours there. Lots to see and do. 
  • This is a good museum for small kids. There is a lot to do. Kids get to play and pretend to be a baker, actor and so much more. They also have a art station. Good to keep kids engaged for hours. They ...  more »

  • Good place and kids love the visit and they really enjoyed. Even I enjoyed looking inside the Big Volvo truck... I think this is a must visit place if your in Greensboro and you have young kids. Staff was nice and place was clean.
  • We had a great time. They have a ton of space for the kids to run around. They did not have any canned exhibits, everything seemed novel. It was well-kept in general, appeared to be clean. They had the expansion area open even though it was not complete. Cons: Some of the buttons did not work in some things (media room) so basic maintenance would be better. Also, the music program they offered was weak. Just conducting? No banging or singing or similar? This is great now but could be a real gem once they finish the expanded area and the outdoor garden. UPDATE. We returned after six years with a nine year old and an eleven year old. Both are older than the target age but they still had fun. The garden was up and running with some nice features but a bit overgrown. They have a dig pit and mud pie area if your kids can get dirty. The rest of the museum is really just indoor play infrastructure. A pizza parlor, a train, cars and trucks, a low climb wall, giant blocks, a medical office, a post office, a stage, and others. Between this museum and the zoo we had a great time in Greensboro.
  • Fantastic children's museum. My opinion is a child over 9 or 10 might get bored easily. This museum is not very crowded and great for toddlers. Membership is the way to go if you live in the area.
  • Fun place to take your kids. $2 first Friday of the month.
  • Kids had lots of fun! Great time rain or shine!
