One of our favorite attractions in the Myrtle Beach area is the Children's Museum of South Carolina, which is why we were thrilled to learn that beginning this past June 30, the museum began opening its doors to visitors on Sundays from 12-5 p.m.

Educational and interactive, the Children's Museum of South Carolina is a wonderful addition to the Grand Strand as thousands of local visitors and tourists pass through the doors each year. For days when you may need a break from the sun or clouds are in the sky, the Children's Museum of South Carolina makes for a fun (and affordable) alternative to a day on the beach.

Their ‘Sea Turtles Dig in the Dark' exhibit is new this year and gives visitors the opportunity to crawl through a sand dune and discover more than 120 loggerhead turtle eggs in a nest. Not only will you learn about the endangered species that nests along South Carolina's shoreline, you'll learn what you can do to help it, including what to do if you see spot of these gentle giants on the beach.

Another great tip to potential museum visitors is to check out their ‘Summer Fun Nights!' program, where admission is only $1 per person 5-7 p.m. on the third Friday of July, August and September. We know it won't disappoint. For more information, check out their website at
