VISIT

Spartanburg

TCMU-Spartanburg is designed for children ages 5 and under. All of the exhibits were developed on a smaller scale to meet the physical needs of early learners, meaning counters are built for their height, crawling areas are padded for infants, and interactives are provided for their interests. Exhibits also incorporate learning goals and educational standards for children birth to age five.

TCMU is now open! Click to learn more.
