Culture and Heritage Museums
This is a great place visit. The exhibits are very realistic and interesting. There's plenty of activities for children, a super cool planetarium, and a gift shop with plenty of offerings. They also host several special exhibits. I am amazed at how much this place has improved over the years. Plus, they're free on Sunday!

I don't know who enjoys this museum more- the kids or me! The first time we went there was a great exhibit on nocturnal animals ;however, the second time that was closed. I love the taxidermied animals and a great learning experience for kids for different terrains and the animals and plants that grown within them. There are tables to investigate more and many books and information! I have yet to be in the planetarium as they are limited in show times. My kids really enjoy the kids room too- kitchen area, puppets, blocks galore. A safe and fun space for kids of all ages (probably best for those under 6). Most employees very nice - one lady was getting on kids in kids area to clean up behind themselves in a strict manner. Cute gift shop for local gifts. I would love to see an upgrade to the outside of the building to be more welcoming and maybe something's done outside -- garden, bird houses, etc. For it to represent all of York County a few upgrades would be great!!

This is a great quaint place to see if you happen to visit the small town of Rock Hill South Carolina. If you are military you get in for free.
Great museum with plenty of hands on fun for kids. Very educational with some interactive play rooms as well!
For a small country museum, I was impressed. When I took my son, they had a dinosaur exhibit. Please do not think there were giant fossils or anything else you would expect from a museum in a big city, but it was cute for my 3 year old. They had 2 different dinosaur mazes. This is where you answered questions about dinosaurs to get through the maze successfully. They had 'dinosaur feet' the kids could put on and walk on a memory foam mattress to make tracks. There were lots of small dinosaur toys to play with as well. There is a room that is a permanent fixture that kids can play in. He really liked this room a lot! We spent an hour in there. There are also large taxidermy animals at one end, which were interesting for my little guy. We spend about 3 hours here. Since we have a membership at the Children's Museum, we also got in here for free.
