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....

This is the first time I have ever been to the Children's museum... I went with some friends and brought my 10 month old. It's in a good location as far as touristy and pretty Charleston. It has fun stuff for kids but I do wish there were more staff to regulate as you know lots of parents like to... More

The museum was very entertaining for my grandchildren, which is a miracle when they're all under 4. There's a variety of rooms which are themed and contain activities that will keep them self-entertained. My eldest grandchild was totally gaga in the pirate and castle themed rooms, the youngest with the water table room, and the middle with the grocer shopping... More

Our family of 6 took a day trip to Charleston while we were vacationing in Edisto Island. We went to this fully knowing that our boys (11 & 8) would probably not enjoy it as much as our girls (3 & 2). They were pretty good sports about it, & played with their sisters, but there really wasn't much to... More

Nothing special, typical Children's Museum setup. Children enjoyed, good place to kill a few hours. I think older kids would get bored here, more playtime than learning.

We have a 1 and 3 year old and they both loved the cml. They both really loved the castle and the water area. If you go to the visitors center next door they have buy one get one free coupons which is very nice. Highly recommend this for anyone with kids under 10.
