The Children’s Museum of South Carolina (CMSC)

The Children’s Museum of South Carolina (CMSC) is tailor-made for your next family adventure.

This 501(c)3 non-profit organization is located at 2501 North Kings Hwy in Myrtle Beach, where it boasts an unbelievable array of fun and educational exhibits that serve its mission to “promote and stimulate self-discover through interactive learning experience, which will enhance every child’s understanding of his or her global community.”

You and your child will learn a little bit of everything at CMSC, from electricity to plants to art. Plus, you can plan your child’s next birthday party there, where all guests get free admission and exclusive use of the Discovery Classroom.

Come let your child shine at the Weather Center & Continuous News Desk, sponsored by WPDE Newschannel 15. Here, kids get to report the weather in front of a live green screen or report the news from behind a real news desk.

If your little buddy wants to be a sailor, take him or her to the USS Kids-a-Float exhibit. Explore the different parts of a boat and learn all about the safety rules you need out on the water.

Got a science fan in your family? Play paleontologist at the South Carolina Fossil Hunt exhibit, where you can dig for 65 million-year-old fossils from the Atlantic Ocean.

The Famous Fraction Pizza Delivery Truck promises that you’ve never had this much fun learning about fractions. Just jump in, make a pizza, and practice counting while the pizza bakes.

Your family can get an idea of just what a Category 1 hurricane feels like in the Hurricane Simulator, with winds of 78 miles per hour. Learn more about identifying hurricane strength winds with the Saffir-Simpson Hurrican Scale. Each simulator ride is $2, for up to four people.

Join the fun at CMSC 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, plus stop by (even when school’s out) on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, President’s Day and Columbus Day. Admission is $8 per person and children under 1 get in free.
