My family, including our 4 year old has visited several times. It was a lot of fun watching her experience each zone on her own. We had a blast. Her favorite has to be the grocery store and farm. Although the construction and craft areas are a close second. For parents, if you need a break the craft room or... More

My children just love Edventure. There are activities for all levels of children and plenty of things to do. The only downfall is the admission that is charged for parents and kids. Unlike the zoo where there are enjoyment for the adults, this is pretty much just a place for children.

We stopped in to break up a long drive and I was glad we did. We showed up 2 hours before close on Sunday. It wasn't too busy, thankfully. Originally I was surprised that I had to pay full price for my 14 month old, but once we got into some of the exhibits I realized that there was so... More

The Edventure Chidren's museum was a fun place to spend an afternoon. It was very clean, and easy to navigate. The employees were friendly. However, I thought it was a little ridiculous that my 19 month old had to pay full price admission. My son (4 1/2) had a lot of fun though. There is lots to do for any... More

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
