We've been to this museum several times, the most recent being my daughter's elementary school class' field trip in Nov 2013, and my kids love it every single time. They look forward to it with great anticipation, and ask to go all time.

We visited the Children's Museum of the Upstate with a 3 and 9 year old and found there was plenty to hold their attention. The hands on exhibits are fantastic and it is hard to see the whole museum at one time. I think we could have stayed on the bottom floor with the water and music exhibits the whole time. the lower level includes a "recording studio" where your family can make their own music video singing children's favorite's like Old Mcdonald had a Farm. Great keepsake!

This museum has something for everyone...... Young children, older children, young adults, new parents, grandparents....everyone is covered. See the wonderful on faces when they play in the music room, slide thru a stomach, put trash thru recycle, climb thru the maze, drive a race car, enjoy the wind machine, the list goes on. This is something everyone should experience, parents and grandparents alike must take their kids to this magical place.

The museum was closed to all but the convention guests (all adults) when we went and the adults certainly let out the kids in them. Hands-on activities were a lot of fun and I can see where kids would just love this place. The food is ok... typical hot dogs, hamburgers, etc., but I don't know if that was just for our event or if the regular menu is different. Parking for us was across the street and free; I don't know if that is typical or not. But all in all it was a fun, clean place with lots for the kids to try their hands at.
