“A great experience for children of various ages”
Reviewed July 13, 2011

My kids, 3 and 5, had a blast playing at The Sandbox. There were numerous things to do and they were constantly busy during the three hours we spent there. If you are looking for a break from the sun and heat this is a great activity!

“Great for our kids, 2 & 4”
Reviewed January 18, 2011

I agree with the other reviews, if your children are 5 or over, it may be a bit boring. However, if your kids are under 5, then its PERFECT. I would agree, it is more a play place then an actual children's museum. There is a moon sand area, construction area, pirate boat, airplane cockpit, dino rock climbing wall, kitchen/grocery, bank, toddler play area, costume area and then crafts and painting. The only complaint we have was that when we arrived and paid, the attendant was very stern in saying things needed to be put back exactly where there are to go. I understand cleaning up after yourselves, it was just the sterness at the beginning puts you on edge. However, we will definitely go back.

“For pre-schoolers & younger”
Reviewed October 20, 2010

This is not a museum but yet a play-space. It's pefect for the smaller child. My daughter is now 5 & the only reason that I would take her back is for the art/crafts area. She enjoyed the area upstairs where she could create a masterpiece or in the room where she could put on a smock & paint. The supplies that the Sandbox provides are great!

Reviewed September 27, 2010

The sandbox is a must see each time we visit Hilton Head. Our son enjoys all the different activites and it is a good break from the beach. We have been twice and it was fun each time. Their is lots to do for young kids. Also check out the calendar of activites. Call ahead before you go. Sometimes they close to host groups. have fun

“Not a museum, a play place”
Reviewed June 8, 2010

I am not sure why the word museum is in the title. Although small, it is a nice place for toddlers to blow off some energy in air conditioning. Don't forget to venture upstairs for more hands on play.
