Plan a Visit: The Main Street Children’s Museum
Ready to get social with your little one? I know just the place to start! My first visit to the Main Street Children’s Museum is a one I will forever have etched in my memory. My little one was only 3 months old, but I needed to get out of the house and she needed some social interaction with other little ones. Each “Wee Wednesday” has a theme complete with story-time, songs, interactive play, instruments (sometimes), and the children are able to make the craft of the day at no additional cost!
Although Zoey was only 3 months old during her first visit, she still was able to participate in every aspect of Wee Wednesday. Needless to say, we have been to “Wee Wednesday” and visited the museum during normal hours several times since our first visit. I just had to tell everyone about this perfect little jem tucked in Rock Hill, SC.
In our subsequent visits, Zoey was able to participate in more features at the museum as she began to develop and grow. You and your child will find ways to interact and play in every square inch of this incredible children’s museum. There are even a few areas that are friendly for the not-yet-mobile infants as well! Which is truly a win-win if you’re looking for an activity for the entire family.
The museum is actually an old, renovated bank, which is pretty awesome! The vault at the back of the museum has been turned into an area for dress-up, complete with mirrors and armoires full of costumes! As you walk into the museum, you will notice a tree-house, that you can actually climb up and play inside. There are interactive buttons on the tile floor that react when you step on or touch them. There is a pirate ship ready for you to steer and a net ready for you to climb to ring the bell. There are opportunities throughout the museum for pretend play and investigation EVERYWHERE. Zoey’s current favorite activity is the ginormous train table complete with tracks and trollies.
The location of the museum is ideal if you’re looking for an all-day adventure in Rock Hill. The diner located directly next to the museum comes highly suggested by the staff at the museum if you need to grab a bite to eat. For dessert, you’ll find Amelie’s French Bakery right down the street. Then, when you need to work off that sugar fix, there are several nearby parks ready for play!
