Family Friendly Activities

When children are not in school or participating in sports, it’s good to know a community has other positive and productive things to keep them busy. Wilson has a wide variety of ways for families to connect to culture, arts, education, nature, and so much more.

Imagination Station is a local children’s museum that is favorite for Wilson families. They seek to combine childhood wonder and education with entertainment and interaction. For only a few dollars per person, you get your money’s worth many times over visiting Imagination Station.

The Arts Council of Wilson is another great resource for families. They have camps and programs all year that teach children dance, writing, painting, theater, music, and just about any other art or craft you can imagine. The classes are affordable, but assistance is provided for those who may need it.

There are also a number of parks and museums in Wilson that add to the local family-friendly culture. The North Carolina Baseball Museum is a gem where children can learn about America’s pastime, maybe before seeing a game from our local minor league team, the Wilson Tobs. There is also the Freeman Roundhouse Museum, the Botanical Gardens, and the Wilson Rose Gardens.

All of the above are only a taste of what Wilson can offer. A well-balanced childhood should have lots of physical play, arts and crafts, and education. Families can find it all here. There is no danger of your children being stuck indoors in Wilson.
