Main Street Children’s Museum to open at ChristmasVille

Main Street Children’s Museum, the Culture & Heritage Museums’ newest site, will open at Rock Hill’s ChristmasVille festival December 2.

The name for the children’s museum was selected based on research from the Association of Children’s Museums as well as feedback from local focus groups.

The idea for Main Street Children’s Museum evolved since 2008 with input from area early childhood educators as well as families. The museum’s interactive exhibits were inspired by the whimsical artwork of the late Vernon Grant.

Main Street Children’s Museum offers memory-making family experiences and enriches early childhood education as infants to age 6 engage in creative, developmental play. Although the target audience is through age 6, older siblings are also welcome to participate.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES The Culture & Heritage Museums will again be offering birthday parties at all sites, including the Main Street Children’s Museum, beginning January 1. Parties may be booked now. Cost is $150 ($125 for CHM members) at Main Street Children’s Museum and the Museum of York County and $175 ($150 for CHM members) at Historic Brattonsville.
