“Our trip to The Children’s Museum of the Upstate has generated a lot of excitement every year; we love the interactive exhibits! Our second grade group hopes to expose the students to as many experiences that are ’hands on’ as we can. Every area of your museum is kid-friendly from the grocery store to the water tables! Your classes allow us to address our curriculum standards in an engaging way. Our students talk about your museum with such excitement that we want to keep visiting year after year!”

-Greenville County School Teacher

The Scholarship Program ensures that all students are able to access our innovative and unique educational programs and world-class facility, regardless of their background or ability to pay. To date, TCMU has hosted 100,800 children through school visits; over 13,000 of those students received scholarships- an investment of more than $100,000 in our community’s education. The Children's Museum of the Upstate is intended to be a resource for all children in the Upstate, and thanks to the support of donors like you, we are able to provide scholarships for low-income students each year.
