The Children's Museum
The Children’s Museum exists to ignite a passion for learning – empowering all children to discover
their full potential and expand their view of themselves and the world.
In December 2003, local benefactors donated the former Greenville
County Library building and the surrounding land to The Children’s Museum and
plans for the Museum began to take shape. This 79,000 square foot facility at
Heritage Green is one of the largest children’s museums in the United States.
