Spartanburg

PLANNING A VISIT?

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 closed on Mondays after Labor Day through Memorial Day, and on holidays: July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and Easter Sunday.
