Our mission is to engage all children through hands-on learning experiences that promote play, inspire imagination, foster creativity, and spark exploration in a fun, family friendly environment.


Zing Zumm® Children’s Museum of Jacksonville is a community supported, 501(c)(3) non-profit children's museum geared towards ages 0-10 years old. Many museums are places to observe collections of objects that depict a specific theme. A children’s museum is interactive, hands-on, and unstructured to allow children to follow their own interests for as long as desired. The museum is located at 625 New Bridge Street in downtown Jacksonville, North Carolina, 28540.

We are open!
Come visit us Tuesday-Saturday between 9am-5pm; Sunday 1pm-5pm.
No reservation needed.
