The Children’s Museum of the Low Country has several hands-on exhibits that invite creative play while encouraging kids to explore the world around them. In the Art Room, kids can color and create projects from recycled egg cartons, cardboard boxes and other items. It’s dress-up time at the Medieval Creativity Castle, where kids will find prince and princess costumes and discover secret passageways. The Kid’s Garden stimulates all five senses with its organic herbs, bugs and a pond with waterfall. Kids can pump water from an antique well. The WaterWise exhibit teaches kids about the importance of water in everyday life. There’s a water table for little kids too small to reach the other water-related features.

Still a great place for kids!Flag review
We have been visiting the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry since my now 6 yr old was a newborn. It is a great museum for kids! Everything is hands on for kids but it's size is not overwhelming for parents (or kids). The museum is in an old cotton warehouse right between the Charleston Visitor's Center on Meeting St and shopping on King St - so it's 1 room wide and long. It has a pirate room, water room, art room, fabulous Middle Ages Knight/Castle room, a baby/tot area, and mini grocery store. It's a great stop for kids to just run around after shopping/museum hopping.
Tips for Families
I like to park in the parking garage by the Visitor Center (off Meeting St). They sell inexpensive snacks/drinks in the lobby that you can eat outside or in the lobby picnic area. Cupcake on King St is a great post museum treat. Basil on King St is super yummy - my kids LOVE the Chicken Coconut soup.
