What is there to do?

The Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island is a great place to visit any time of the year! It's here you can explore natural and cultural heritage across the 68 acre property.

There are indoor and outdoor exhibits, including the museum which is a great way to become familiar with the island's unique history and ecology. There are interactive touch screens that make learning even more interesting, offering interviews with influential islanders and historic figures.

Kids can even see a video of a nesting loggerhead sea turtle!

The Kids Zone is of course a great place for those smaller curious family members to explore, and parents can interact with the kids as you all learn about the cultural and natural history of the island.

You can put puzzles together, create your own puppet show, or enjoy some exciting children's books, just to name a few activities on offer!

The Coastal Discovery Museum also offers a number of guided walks, talks, tours, cruises and excursions throughout the year. Fancy learning more through a docent led tour at the museum? Perhaps you want to take a leisurely kayak through the marsh? Maybe take a cruise to see the dolphins!

There's also a butterfly habitat on the grounds to check out too, with some amazing gardens as well!

The Coastal Discovery Museum is not just a learning experience for kids, but one that will inspire them to take care of the Lowcountry.

Nature is important, so we have to look after it! A fun, nature filled day out for all!
