I came up from Columbia to see my son who had just arrived from Nevada. The weather did not cooperate it was a down pour. Looked up things to do found the museum ,and directions Admission was reasonable discount for a senior citizen. Spent a relaxing afternoon looking at the exhibits very good attention to detail.

High quality experience with self walking tour, curator section for questions and a planetarium. This tour can be done under 2 hours and as little as 1 hour. Totally impressed with how they made the animal settings so real. It is well worth the travel time to see.

We spent about two hours here...it's a great little spot to beat the heat or escape inside on a rainy day. We took five toddlers between the age of one and four and everyone enjoyed it. There are tons of animal exhibits to enjoy as well as a great toddler area for free imaginative play with blocks and dress up... More

We went to the museum to meet other children that were going to the same school as my child (5 yrs old). She was entertained nicely for 2 hours+ until the staff made us leave for closing time. I will warn that the wolf scene area may be too intense for some young children as it depicts a deer being... More

We absolutely love our little museum with such great historical presence! Snap Crackle pop..who knew that started all from a fellow Rock Hillian?! It's so awesome seeing all his original art work and the fun place for kids to use their imagination! A great learning tool for ages 2 to 100! 🙌

My almost ten year old daughter and I attended on a Saturday. I had an idea of what to expect from their website and was pleasantly surprised to see it meet and exceed my expectations. My daughter wasn't excited that we were going to a museum, but as soon as she walked in the door, she was enthralled! We spent... More
