Learning is at the center of the fun anchored at EdVenture Myrtle Beach Children’s Museum. Located in The Market Common, all 3,000 square feet of EdVenture is packed with hands-on exhibits for kiddos of all ages.
The popular museum has two other locations in South Carolina, each with a unique layout of exhibits and schedule of programs and events, but the trio of EdVentures are all founded on the same mission to “inspire the joy of learning in children and their families” in a safe museum experience.
EdVenture also aims to connect with the communities they serve through family support and business partnerships. Here in Myrtle Beach, that support comes from the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base Redevelopment Authority, Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics, and Publix, which reflects in the hands-on exhibits at this location.
Here’s what to expect when you explore EdVenture Myrtle Beach:
This new interactive exhibit channels your child’s inner professional artist or book illustrator. Kids can sit down and watch their drawings and creations come to life!
Kids will love copying what Mom and Dad do all the time at the grocery store by grabbing a cart and shopping for healthy meals! After, they can head to the checkout counter and calculate the cost at the register! They can also don a vest and work as a shelf stocker or cashier.
For your future foodies, let their imaginations run wild in the café, where they can experience the food service industry through the power of play. It all may inspire them to enter the kitchen and the culinary industry!
