We learned so much going their. We learned how the island came to be like it is now. We also know that a alligator walked right beside the man. That was never heard of from my kids and they were so amazed of the things they did not know about the island. What a learning experience for all of us.

Our family of 10 ranging from age 7 to 77 had fun here. Grandmom enjoyed learning about the history of the area and the children enjoyed running around and from exhibit to exhibit. Walking on the docks, enjoying the scenery, and smelling the many beautiful camelias were fun for everyone. (no butterflies in November) The time you would spend here really depends on your group. We spent three hours. You could spend more or less. The building is small so most of your time is spent outside. Dress and plan accordingly.

We shall visit every two - three years. We find the docents to be helpful.

We recommend skipping the restaurant next door unless you delight in "touristy" stuff.

The museum was nice and had lots of information. I loved the little gift shop, lots of different items and trinkets. The women were very knowledgeable. The grounds are what we loved the most, so beautiful and full of history.

Didn't spend much time inside the museum but the grounds are a great place to walk around and spy on the nature that call this place their home. We also stopped in the Butterfly house but due to the time of year we visited there were not very many Butterflies to be found. This was our second visit to the Coastal Discovery Museum and look forward o our next visit where we can enjoy the trails once again.
