Sandbox

An interactive museum for the youngest of learners, focused on developing their social skills, physical and mental cognitive abilities, and encouraging curiosity. Marvel at the fish, crabs, snails, and starfish in the 48” aquarium, track the t-rex on the climbing wall, and role-play as a bank teller at the South State Bank. Young pirates can sail the seas on a replicated 16th-century Spanish Galleon, while pilots-in-training can board the cockpit of an airplane and fly the skies in 3 flight simulations. Don’t forget to put on a show in the puppet theater before leaving!
