I'm a big fan of visiting children's museums around the country to give our kids a chance to relax and be in their element amid family events and touristy adventures. We were pleasantly surprised at how much this venue had to offer our 5-year-old and 20-month-old sons. They played happily for 3.5 hours, which gave Mom and Dad a nice cool break on a 95-plus humid day. Highlights for them: the castle, the water play room, the art room, and the giant golf ball run and vintage fire truck outside. A year from now, I think our eldest would spend more time in the woodworking area up front. We somehow missed the pint-sized play grocery store in the back entirely. Glad we have more to visit on our next trip to Charleston!
