Mission and History

The Children's Museum of the Lowcountry (CML) offers unlimited learning adventures for children, ages 3 months to 12 years, and their families.

A world of discovery awaits at the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry. Kids can race boats down rapids, climb aboard a Lowcountry pirate ship and drive an antique fire truck. Families can race golf balls down a roller coaster, find gems under our waterfall and create inspired masterpieces every day in our dedicated art center. At CML, play inspires creativity and encourages lifelong exploration of the world around us.

Free monthly programs further our inter-disciplinary and exciting approach to learning. Children enter our doors with anticipation, take part in our programs with wonder and laughter, and leave with fond memories and a better understanding of basic science, environmental, and artistic concepts.

CML also works to address specific needs within the Lowcountry community by partnering with area organizations to develop targeted programs that, for example, combat childhood obesity, teach teenage mothers important parenting skills, and encourage children from low-income families to think about their futures as they realize their individual strengths.

Established in 2003, the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry is a non-profit organization whose mission is to spark imagination, stimulate curiosity and encourage problem solving through the power of play in families from all backgrounds with young children.
