What is there to do?

Some museums are all about art, and some are all about history, but some museums know what kids really love - FUN - and they are dedicated to just that, as well as learning through play.

The Children's Museum of the Upstate in Greenville, South Carolina was created just for kids to have a great time, and to learn invaluable skills and lessons to help them develop.

With 80,000 square feet, and 18 interactive exhibits, there is certainly a lot of fun waiting for those inquisitive minds!

The Children's Museum of the Upstate has 3 floors filled with exhibits all relating to humanities, the arts, health, sciences, the environment and nutrition, each of which teach chllldren something unique.

The exhibits are fully interactive, and they are geared towards different age groups, so you will always be able to find something age appropriate for your family!

Kids can become actors and news reporters in their very own TV studio, or learn the science of speed and aerodynamics in the Start Your Engines feature. Creative minds will love Off The Wall - a unique exploration space where they can ignite passion for the arts, and those great with their hands and minds can become construction workers.

There are financial exhibits, climbing structures, and ways for kids to learn all about how to have a healthy body and mind.

There is SO much to do! Farms, light fun, hospital role play, will have a great time exploring everything! If you have little ones in the family too, the Toddler Lily Pond is a naturally-themed exhibits where they can splish and splash until their heart's content!
