Innovative & Stimulating Exhibits

The primary mission of the South Carolina State Museum is simple: to educate the public through exhibits rich in creativity, inspiration, and entertainment value. Their permanent exhibits include displays on the dinosaurs, prehistoric fossils, the Civil War, and more.

Rotating exhibits provide even more fun and ensure that there’s always something new when you visit. You can learn about everything from South Carolina art to cultural history to topics that haven’t even been dreamed up yet.

All in all, there are four floors of exhibits. That’s plenty to keep you occupied for a good long time… and during many repeated visits!

Bring on the Interactive Science

The South Carolina State Museum offers plenty of high-tech programs as well. When you need to rest up a little, head over to the 145-seat planetarium for a completely immersive experience. You can enjoy the NASA gallery in the lobby while you wait for the main show.

Meanwhile, their 4D interactive theater is out of this world. You’ll enjoy films with a 3D visual experience and a fourth dimension of environmental experiences, like blasts of air, vibrating seats, and water sprays. It’s the only permanent theater of its kind in the whole state! 

The Boeing Observatory also makes for a one-of-a-kind experience. You can get a close look at the skies above with the 1926 Alvan Clark 12 3/8-inch refracting telescope.

See It All Up Close and in Person
