This is our second visit to the Coastal Discovery Museum and could easily go back more times. The walking paths are well-marked and are easily accessible. Many different exhibits to look at inside. Butterfly house is dependent on weather (of course) but even when we were there on a cool-ish day, there were still several butterflies in the house.

The Coastal Discovery Museum is an excellent venue to learn the history, flora and fauna of Hilton Head. Excellent self-guided trail and the staff was very helpful.

Just off 278 on the Northwest end of the Island, the museum is set in a lovely park like setting. Just parking and walking the trails is pleasant enough. We took the tour (very cheap) and had a friendly and intelligent guide. She took us to the various lookouts and pointed out wildlife (and lots of tracks) and described the flora in the area. There is a butterfly 'house' and lots of pretty trails. The museum had some local crafts and wildlife displays. I bought a jar of sweet cucumber pickels that would have made Grandma proud. A very pleasant visit.

This is such a cute little museum that was a hit for both young and old. A great quick stop for some education or as a rainy day option. Not like it ever rains in SC...

So much history to learn and a beautiful home and grounds to explore! Very helpful workers. Large area to explore such as the boardwalk on the marsh, the cove to see the fiddler crabs, the butterfly enclosure, working bee hives, beautiful gardens-wish the camellia's had been in bloom, and then the marsh ponies! Lots to learn-lots to see!
