DCM Summer Kickoff Party
Friday, June 21st
The Delaware Children’s Museum (DCM) kicks off its summer season on the first official day of summer with the “DCM Summer Kickoff,” a three-hour indoor/outdoor event starting at 5pm on Friday, June 21.
With the Museum open late ‘til 8pm, the party will spill out onto the streets outside, with special events that include a gymnastics performance by Olympiad Gymnastics, a collaborative chalk drawing on the streets and sidewalks outside the Museum, a giant bubble area, face painting, a dance party, food trucks, and more.
But the highlight of the party will be the kiddie pool full of Ooblek, a singular substance that’s well known to regular DCM guests — though usually seen in much smaller quantities. A mixture of cornstarch and water forms the Ooblek, a non-Newtonian fluid that’s just solid enough for kids (and adults) to run across — if they go quickly! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to run across the surface of water.
Tickets to the “DCM Summer Kickoff” are $5 per person and include unlimited access to the Museum and all outdoor activities from 5-8pm on June 21.
And continuing every Friday night this summer, the Museum will feature special extended hours, unique programming, and discounted pricing for guests visiting after 5pm. The “$5 Fridays After5pm” series starts on June 21 and runs every Friday night through the summer. Museum hours on these summer Friday nights will be 9am–8pm, with admission starting at just $5 per person after 5pm.
