Find Something!

If your kids love science, they’ll love these state-of-the-art science museums found all over North Myrtle Beach. Young toddlers and teenagers will find fantastic opportunities to learn about science and technology right in the heart of the city. So when you want to take a break from the sand and the sea, let these museums recommended by Seaside Vacations be the source of delight and wonderment to these inquisitive minds.


Before stepping into an alternative universe that is WonderWorks, you have to know its background first. WonderWorks was supposedly a top secret laboratory on an island in the Bermuda Triangle. When a tornado experiment by Professor Wonder went awry, the laboratory was ripped from its foundation and was blown a thousand miles away until it landed upside down in Myrtle Beach.

Why visit? Besides the amazing “laboratory” story that you would be crazy not to share to the kids, it’s a wonderful treat to see the upside-down building and interiors! Besides the out-of-this-world exhibits like the Hurricane Shack and the Titanic, there are also physical activities that can be a little scary like the Bed of Nails, as well as brain ticklers like the Wonder Wall and Bubble Lab.

Children’s Museum of South Carolina

An “interactive playground for the mind”, the Children’s Museum of South Carolina lets the young ones learn through experience the hands-on exhibits and programs. Learning does not only take place in the classroom, and this is a greatly recommended place to teach kids about values, science, and art.

Why visit? It’s a great place for kids to learn about growing up and the world. There’s the Under Construction House where they can design, build, and tear down the House using jumbo blocks. The Big Bank teaches them how to earn, save, and spend money. Dreaming to be a paleontologist, dig in the sand and look for old fossils found in South Carolina!

Barefoot Landing

Barefoot Landing has it all when it comes to family activities, and you can spend a whole day or two here and still not get enough. Live shows, dining places, a 7D cinema, shopping outlets—and guess what? A reptile park!

Housing as many as 700 alligators and crocodiles, exotic snakes, komodo dragons, tortoises, and more, the park is certainly a must-see attraction for the whole family.
