Perhaps you overdid it on the beach with your family and sunburn is keeping you indoors. Or the weather may have necessitated a change in plans and the kids are getting dangerously close to saying those dreaded words, “I’m bored.” While there is so much to do at Hilton Head, sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect spot to make everyone happy. That’s when you head over to the Coastal Discovery Museum. Adults know it’s full of learning opportunities, kids only know there’s a ton of cool stuff to do there. Such as…


If it’s your first time on the island, you may want to consider taking a tour through the museum. Your well-versed guide will explain to you everything you want to know about the history of the island, the flora and fauna you will see in the environment, or how to identify parts of the island.


If something special related to the environment or local culture is going to happen in Hilton Head, chances are it either was an idea that originated at the Coastal Discovery Museum, or it will be taking place there. Get to know everything there is to know about the Lowcountry by visiting their special exhibits.


The Coastal Discovery Museum also supports the local community with festivals, the weekly farmer’s market, and the annual Art Market. Get to know the local artists, crafters, and farmers, and see what they have to offer. Nothing will help her learn more about the community better than interacting with the people. Imagine the stories they have to tell!


From art to history to local culture to wildlife, the Coastal Discovery Museum has something for everyone to enjoy. Even if you don’t need an emergency rainy day museum plan, you still might want to pencil in a day there. It’s guaranteed to be a day well spent.
