Its great having a venue for kids, and at times i don't mind spending a little more to let the kids have a ball... But, let the money go towards keeping the toys/themes up to date, clean and in working order, not so here. I bring my kids about twice / 3 times a year and am always disappointed that... More

This is the 4th state that I've lived in that had a Children's Museum close to us. And I have to admit, this is my least favorite. It seems very old. And it's very small. Better for the younger age...2-6ish. Although, the facility lacks...the service for their birthday parties is great! I do get an annual membership...but I always wait... More

Our son's family recently moved to Mount Pleasant and we made an early Christmas visit. A Saturday trip to the Children's Museum of the Low Country was planned for our three grandsons who are 2, 5, and 7. They had such a great time during this initial visit that we purchased an annual family pass as a gift. Thanks to... More

We have been to many Children's Museum but this one is more like a childcare instead of a Museum. Well, a nice places for kids, especially under 10. Don't have many seating places for parent while they waiting for their kids to play around the areas. Also i hardly noticed any employee around to provides assistance to the kids or... More

My two year old had a blast here. It's a bit small so plan to go on a day it's slow. Be warned- the castle portion has a ton of stairs. It was a bit much trying to keep my two year old from crashing down the stairs and being 8 months pregnant. This place works best with parents wanting... More

My kids, ages 1, 4, 6, overall had a good time. The place is very small and a bit expensive. Go to the visitor center next door by the bus station as they have buy one get one free coupons on a rack. if you can't find it, just ask the person at the desk.

I took. My 7-year-old son based on a suggestion. When we arrived we were greeted with a smile. We headed to the art room first & he loved drawing, but passed on painting. There was no one in the room for 35 minutes. We took our art & moved on to the medieval section. Some costumes were tattered & missing... More

We took our 2 1/2 year-old daughter to the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry for the first time in August 2014. We were in town on vacation and took a break from the beach and it was well worth it. We enjoyed it the minute we walked in the door. Everyone was so nice and eager to help us. Our... More

Our daughter's therapist suggested we check out the children's museum's Superstars! program. This is on 2 Sunday's a month from 10am-12pm. The museum is not open to the public so that special needs kids can enjoy the museum in ways they would not normally be able to, if even ever go. Our 4 year old (with special needs) loved it....
