Over 21 unique exhibit galleries reflect programming in areas of arts, humanities, sciences, health, nutrition, the environment and community engagement. Families can grocery shop in Publix, climb to the top of Bib’s World–the museum’s outdoor playground–analyze and build in Construction Zone, or explore Grandma Betty’s farm, an exhibit specifically dedicated to children 5 and under.
Free weekly programming, such as Story Time & More and Open Art Studios, provide opportunities for families to further learn and discover together. Annual memberships offer unlimited visits to both TCMU locations in Greenville and Spartanburg.
TCMU’s downtown Spartanburg location houses 6,000 square feet of exhibits designed to support children ages birth to 6, with a focus on early childhood development and Kindergarten readiness. The museum features Spartanburg inspired exhibits, including a Spartanburg Regional hospital exhibit and a water table inspired by the Pacolet and Tyger Rivers.
By offering interactive exhibits and weekly programming, The Children’s Museum of the Upstate seeks to fulfill its’ mission of igniting a community of compassionate problem solvers through intentional and inclusive play. TCMU is one of South Carolina’s best places for families to discover, learn, imagine and play! Museum hours and more information can be found by visiting www.tcmupstate.org.
