This is a wonderful and crowd-free museum. Has everything you need to know about the history of Charleston and the Civil War. Really liked the section on slavery. If we lived in Charleston we would become members. Costs 10 dollars per adult to get in, well worth it.

My children, ages three and five, never get tired of going to this museum. We have visited several children's museums in Georgia and Illinois, and we will love this one. It seems small from the outside, but once you are in there, there is so much to do! If you were in the Lowcountry, I highly recommend purchasing the membership.... More

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

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
