  • One of the best children’s museums we have been to! The exhibits are all very well done, it’s super clean, and huge! The cafe even serves Chick Fil A. A must-do in Greenville for sure!  more »

  • The yearly membership is well worth the cost. There is a fun activity for kids of all ages. Even if your child is too small, some of the activities are adult appropriate. The only complaint I have is I keep seeing kids older than 5 in the "under 5 only" area. Makes it unfair for the younger kids to fight over toys. Also, the new traveling exhibit "Future Park" alone is worth the trip.
  • Hot days. Cold days. Rainy days. Clear and perfect days. This is quite possibly the best place to go with your littles. There art. Story time. Loads of exploration. There's even a flex space upstairs that changes from time to time. The membership is reasonable. Don't put it off. Check it out.
  • It's such a great fun place that never gets old! Having a membership enables you to come for short visits and it keeps it fun! They change certain displays every few months for added adventure! Great rainy day fun or hot day fun!
  • Great place to take the kids of all ages. There was a place upstairs for the babies and toddlers. The whole experience e teaches the children different and introduce the children to so many things. I also like how its really meant for the children and the parents to work together. When we took the kids they did not want to leave. It's amazing how much fun this museum makes learning. Definitely a great place to go. Plus with a one yr. Unlimited visit card being $150, it's really a steal.
  • This is our 3rd year having our membership. My children love it!! It's nice when your not sure what to do you can just go there and spend the day and play. I really love how much fun they have!

Where to stay in Greenville

Greenville's main street is home to a few historical hotels with elegant lobbies and rooms that recall the opulence of the early 20th century. Chain hotels with both standard rooms and suites are scattered throughout the city and near the airport. To be close to nature without sacrificing the city, consider a lodge or cabin in one of the nearby national parks.
