Fall into Fun at the DCM

There's always something NEW happening at the Delaware Children's Museum! Featuring new hours of operation and reduced admission pricing, new exhibits (including an interactive touch tank aquarium opening late-November 2014!), and daily hands-on programs, the DCM is the perfect destination for fall family fun.



With the big kids back to school full time, the DCM shifts its weekday programming focus to cater specifically to its youngest visitors this fall. Scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings, at 10:30am, families can join the DCM for a new line of programs designed to engage preschool-aged children in interactive learning opportunities. On Tuesday mornings, “Science About the Stories” meshes an interactive read-aloud experience with a series of simple science experiments and activity stations that relate to the story. On Wednesday mornings, embark on new adventures in “Tunnel Tales,” a weekly story time featuring topics from airplanes to zebras and everything in between. Concluding the week on Thursday mornings, “Preschool Math Zone” aims to make math more fun, engaging, and approachable by using a variety of common household items to introduce and practice math readiness skills, including the concepts of sorting, matching, counting, number recognition, and sequencing.
