This was only my second children museum that I've taken my son to so my assessment of it will only be to the one other children museum in Portsmouth, VA that I've been too. Thus I was disappointed in this one. It is small with only about 6 activities rooms in a straight line. Of which my son was only... More

We had two 10 year olds and two 7 year olds in our party. It kept them entertained for hours. Multiple rooms each with different themes. Price of admission was for all day with in and out privileges. We came around ten, walked a half block for lunch and came back. Excellent for toddlers all the way to upper elementary.

A great place for the under 10 crowd, but go late in the day as there are far less people there in the afternoon. The place tends to be overrun by their day campers during the week in the summers. The membership is a great value! I only wish they'd bring back the members' only hours.

It's not a museum, really, but a wonderful couple of hours fun if you are traveling with little ones. Each themed room invites play individually and with other children. Something for kids as young as Toddler and up to about age 8 or 9. The down side of this review was that the place was incredibly dirty and the activities... More

Decided to take a day out of the sun and visit the museum with our 4 year old daughter. After being pretty spoiled in Dayton with the Booneshoft, we were a bit disappointed in the overall depth and breadth of the museum. Overall the experience was a little underwhelming, although she did really enjoy the medieval castle. We expected more... More

My granddaughter is 8 and has been coming here since she was 4. She never tires of it, since everything is interactive and there is always a lot of action. Great place for travelers to take kids on a rainy day in Charleston. I think the upper age that would enjoy it is probably about 10.

The children's museum is an excellent location to take children to explore about the world around us from pretend grocery store experiences that teach counting, colors, and etc to a display of the Charleston river where children can pump water into a bucket to overflow a 3D model of Charlestons bridges. There are ongoing activities and crafts for children to... More

The children so what enjoyed it. It wasn't many stations for the children to have fun. To be exact, it was only 5 stations and 1 station for infant/toddlers. I was very surprise to see such a small attraction for a major city. I would not recommend this place and we will not return. It was really a wasted trip.... More

This made her day. So much to do at a reasonable price and they do give Military and Educator discounts.
