The Children’s Museum of the Upstate
September 10, 2009
The Children’s Museum of the Upstate is a wonderful new place for all children to discover the wonders of the Earth’s most abundant resources, the full continuum of flight, the speed, power and controls behind Formula I racing, a realistic farm complete with chicken coop and garden, a construction site, a children’s test kitchen, a Children’s hospital, a television and music studio and much more.
The Children’s Museum began with one mother’s vision to create a place for children to learn and to be inspired in an informal, hands-on environment. When the former Greenville County Library building and the surrounding land was donated by local benefactors in December 2003 to the Children’s Museum her dream began to take shape in reality. Six years later the Children’s Museum at Heritage Green opened it’s doors in August 2009.
With three floors of indoor exhibits, the 79,000 sq foot facility is one of the largest children’s museums in the United States.
Throughout the year, The Children’s Museum will also offer many special events, like the BOO!seum, The Chocolate Soiree, Two for Two Thursdays or Birthday Parties.
