Greensboro Children's Museum, Greensboro

4.5
#4 of 6 in Museums in Greensboro
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.

  • Took my 7 and 4-yr old boy and girl. They had a blast role playing at the pizzeria, market, mail truck...and that's just inside! Depending on the weather, the outdoor equipment can to hours of fun too.
  • Staff friendly and constantly cleaning up after the masses of kids. My children loved it. The new outside portion was a little challenging for my 4 y.o and 5 y.o (be sure you have shoes with ties or they can not climb!)
  • The children's museum had a little something for everyone. My child was 20 months old at the time of his visit and we spent most of our time in the littles area, which is gated, with benches for parents to sit while their babies play with blocks, books, age appropriate figurines and crawl tunnels. We also visited the other small play areas- grocery store, doctor's office, theater, house construstion site, post office, technology center, campsite, airport, train station and garage. My son loved playing in the 18-wheeler cab. The only areas we missed were Nana's house and the cafe to play. When you go, your wristband is good for the entire day so you can go out to eat or pack a lunch and eat in the small eating area there (they do offer vending machines for snacks and drinks), come back and spend the whole day at play with your kids. We expected to spend an hour to and hour and a half before my child got bored and we spent 3 hours here. Its a great place to bring your kids for a day to play.
  • I took my grandboy's ages 3 and 2 they loved it. Stayed busy the whole time we were there. I couldn't ask for a better friendly good environment to take them. Everything under one roof. And keep s them entertain for hours.
  • They have renovated and have an awesome outdoor area for the kids to climb on. It's always a good time and the kids get to jump from room to room at their own leisure.
