  • Awesome place for the kids! This place is a kid's dream come true for an indoor playground. It is a very big place with plenty of things for kids to do. This place is has a large wooden pirate ship, a castles with multilevels, an entire pretend supermarket, complete with checkout registers, a large room where kids can paint and create other crafts, a water playground where kids can play with with toy ships, and even costumes so kids can really get into their role playing. There's places for parents to sit and watch their kids play without loosing sight of their children. The inside has a very well planned out topography for allowing you to keep an eye on your kids while they play. I like that. It really feels more like a large indoor playground than an actual museum, to me. While there are "exhibits" to see, I think they're too closely tied to the playground for kids to really take notice of and really learn anything from it. I didn't get a chance to see the outdoor portion of this place, but my wife said it was a little run down and that I wasn't missing anything. I'll take her word for it. My only real gripe was the lack of upkeep in the men's bathroom. Someone dropped a bomb in the men's bathroom and it had not been cleaned, the smell was so bad that I had to leave the building to use the rest room. The entry price for two adults and two smaller kids was about $40, just FYI. Overall the kids had a lot of fun and did not want to leave.
  • Very entertaining and educational. But not very large overall. Good for about a 3 hour visit. There are picnic tables for lunch. No food is sold there so bring your own. Friendly and helpful staff.
  • Probably the BEST place to take children! Staff is super nice and friendly! Lots and lots of things to choose to do! Always have a blast and EXCELLENT EXPERIENCES! :) Great for rainy days too!!
  • Some fun areas, but smallish. Spent about 1.25 hours here and saw everything. A little expensive for 2 adults plus a preschooler... Make sure to grab a coupon from the Charleston Visitor's Center. Would probably get a membership if we lived locally.
  • Great place for a field trip or family fun on a rainy day! Your kids will love exploring the different rooms and letting their imagination go wild.
