Main Street Children's Museum in Rock Hill, SC

Imaginations run wild at the Main Street Children's Museum in Rock Hill, SC. It's easy to get to (about 8 minutes off of 77), has free parking, is an affordable $5 per person and is absolutely adorable. Kids under 1 are free, the museum is closed on Mondays.

I honestly wasn't expecting the Main Street Children's Museum to be so quaint. There are nooks to play in, toys to explore and lots of places to climb and be a kid - plus it's so clean and inviting.Previously the museum was an old bank, and transformed its huge vault into a magical dress up area with costumes for girls and boys. There is a kitchen, puppet stage, boat, large train set, book nook and pulley system for hoisting and moving bean bags .

There is climbing to be done!
Surprisingly we had the place to ourselves, so S and her friend spent 2 1/2 hours fully engaged in imaginative play. They host craft days, story times and also birthday parties.

This is a little gem down in rock hill. Food and drinks aren't allowed, but you can pack a snack to have in the back room. There are several restaurants within walking distance including Jimmy Johns.
