Gift Memberships Available

With a Delaware Children’s Museum Gift Membership, it’s easy to give the special children and families in your life a year of exploration and a lifetime of memories.

What a fun way to say “Welcome to the Neighborhood,” “Happy Birthday!,” “Thank You,” or “Congratulations.”

DCM Gift Memberships are presented in the form of a membership certificate that recipients bring to the Museum to redeem on their first visit. (The recipient’s membership will not be activated until they come into the Museum to redeem their certificate. Once activated, their membership will expire one year after the date of redemption.)

DCM Gift Memberships that are purchased online or over the phone will be mailed out to the buyer for personalization with a DCM welcome packet and presentation envelope.
