New Museum Spotlight: The Delaware Children's Museum

There is a new pace to play, explore and adventure, The Delaware Children's Museum, which opened their doors to the enthusiastic children everywhere on April 24th 2010.

The museum opened it's doors to withhold their goals and mission to "provide children and their families from diverse backgrounds with a comfortable, accessible, fun and stimulating environment where they enjoy spending time together","to develop innovative ways to help children learn through play and to complement the learning that takes place at home and at school" and "to present content across multiple disciplines in a way that invites exploration, encourages learning and creates connections between visitors and the world".

With exhibits like The Power of me-dedicated to the human body,The Stratosphere-a 30 foot diagonal climber taking kids to new heights and Training Wheels-an area built for the museums youngest explorers to explore things that GO!, you child will be educated and entertained at the same time.These are just 3 of the seven exhibits that cover 37,000 square feet of interactive fun.

Admission is $12 per person. And children under the age of 1 are free. This museum is included in the reciprocal museum passes. But because of some guidelines the museum imposed upon it's self, that I don't understand, if you buy your Reciprocal pass at the Please Touch Museum, this is not included. But if you buy it at the Garden State Discovery Museum, not only is the pass $100 cheaper than at the Please Touch Museum, but you can go to all the museums around the country including the Please Touch Museum AND this new Delaware Children's museum.

They have plenty of weekly events going on, hop over to the new museum Saturday and from 9am to noon take part in Critter Cart-the Delaware Museum of Natural History will be visiting with a special cart of critters, come learn about their habitat. And from 10am to 3pm, Make and Design your own Flying Kite.Check their calender for events!Sounds like fun.

I'll be visiting the museum in August so be on the look out for my Review. If you've been there, let us know what you liked, or didn't like!
