Children's and Family Programs

Children's and Family Programs

We believe learning is fun. And we want to make learning about Charleston and its history fun for your children. From playing with Colonial toys to mock architectural digs and writing with quills, our activities engage younger audiences and help foster an appreciation for the past.  

Education is part of our mission. While we take that seriously, nothing makes us happier than the sound of children laughing and enjoying their time with us while learning about our precious city and its history.
