DCM Community Access Programs

The DCM is proud to offer Community Access Programs (CAPs), generously supported through our Breaking Barriers Campaign. CAPs are designed to make sure that as many families as possible are able to experience the playful learning opportunities that the Museum provides, by eliminating any access barriers that keep children and their families away from the Museum.


We are pleased to offer these programs, and we need your help to keep them going. Click here to make your contribution to CAPs today.

Check It Out!


The Wilmington Public Library on Tenth Street—as well as the North Wilmington Branch on Market Street—carry DCM admission passes. These passes are available for check-out by library cardholders. (Only one pass is available for check out per day at each location. Passes are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.)



Salute the Troops Program


Periodically, the Delaware Childrenʼs Museum says “Thank You” to all of those moms, dads, aunts, uncles, and grandparents who have served our country. From Black Friday, November 27, 2015 - Friday, January 1, 2016, all active-duty and veteran military personnel will receive two free admissions with military ID, for themselves and one guest (total of two people), as part of our "Salute the Troops" program.

Passage to Play


The DCM will match donors who wish to underwrite field trips with schools or groups who need them. Interested? Contact the Museum at (302) 442-6862.
