My 11 year old had a great time there. Ed is humongous and easy to navigate. We left for lunch and then came back to have some more fun.

Wow!!! So many happy and excited children. A busy morning with so much to see and do. Ages 3 to 14 had a wonderful, playful, and learning experience. The butterfly exhibit was a huge hit for everyone. The dinosaurs were fun and interesting. The hands on engineering and crafts room had everyone trying to make a better parachute than the... More

Perfect place for young kids. Exceeded my expectations, especially for the price. There was plenty to keep my 2 year old busy. Also, great for all kids under 10.

A must do for children visiting our state capitol! Make sure to go down the slide and learn all about the human body as you descend! Plenty of parking and close to the SC State Museum so do these in the same day!

We went early to avoid the crowds. The butterfly area is nice. There is so much to do and see, everything is hands on! Be sure to have your kids participate in the fire safety class...Very educational!!!

Every room offers something really special for kids of various ages. Colorful, fun, challenging. A gigantic boy spans more than two floors with a study of the internal human body that kids can explore. Farm rooms, game rooms with life-size game pieces, mechanical contraptions that kids can operate while other kids they don't even know try to participate with them... More

I took a trip to Edventure a few weeks ago with my cousin and her nephews. We went on a Wednesday morning and spent about 2 1/2 hours there. It was great! I think I loved it even more than the kids. There are tons of things to do and your child will not be bored. I think my favorite... More

There were too many exhibits that didnt work. The ones that did, you couldnt get to. They need to go through in groups so that all the children could get a turn with the exhibits. Too many children not supervised. My kids would wait in line forever to get a turn with the exhibits only for other children to push... More

kids cannot be watched while playing in Eddie or fire area crawl tunnels. Too much for us, we get separated every visit. For a young kid wanting to just play make believe..farm, grocery store, etc. Craft area was awful!
