What ages are appropriate for a visit to TCMU-Spartanburg?
The Spartanburg museum was designed and built to best meet the needs of children ages 5 and younger and their caregivers. All of the exhibits were developed on a smaller scale to meet the physical needs of early learners, meaning counters are build for their height, crawling areas are padded for infants, and interactives are provided for their interests.
