So many activities for all ages. Lots to do and all the children when we were there were very well behaved. Staff are about overseeing which is good. If it would have been really crowded I'm sure it could get chaotic. Not for those who don't enjoy playing with their children.

This house is divided into several different interaction rooms. There were things to climb on and through, an airplane to pilot, clothes for dress up, story time with craft, even an enclosed area for toddlers. etc etc. The kids could go from one activity to another and back again!

My kids enjoyed the different stations in the children's museum. They played for a long time upstairs. My son really enjoyed building cars and racing them down the ramp. My one criticism is that the staff is a bit uptight to be working at a children's museum. They seem to be very strict and they have video cameras set up... More

A great option for a rainy day or just to take a break from the beach. Interactive play areas for the younger kids. There is an area for craft projects, too.

This is a favorite to take the Grands several times. Ours really enjoyed the costumes to try on and "play act". Really great if the weather is rainy.

As other reviewers have said, this is a great place to get out of the sun (our case) or rain, and you gotta love the low admission price! It is smaller than regular children's museums, which is probably also why it does not carry that designation. When I first went in with my 5-year old, I was convinced that we... More

Maybe because this was the 4th or 5th time we've visited in the past few years our granddaughters, ages 3 and 8, were "done" in under two hours. The "sand" in the box was minimal, there was apparently only one "girl" pirate costume available, the plane was monopolized for an hour by a group of 6-8 year-old boys, and the... More

Not something unique to the area- most cities have a children's museum. To get out of the sun for a morning, or on a rainy day, this is a good option. Probably good for kids ages 3-8.

Our first full day in Hilton Head was rainy and we saw that The Sandbox was open that Sunday (for being closed Memorial Day) so we decided to take our daughter. There was a pretty big line up and they were at capacity but they were extremely organized and took down everyone's name and when space became available we were... More

This place was perfect for my 1 and 2.5 year old. We went when it was a rainy day. There were quite a few people there since it was raining, but we only had to wait 15-20 minutes. It was just as the website described. I would say the oldest kid I would bring would probably be 6, definitely geared... More
