your school here fundraiser

The Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry provides enriching learning experiences and has been a favorite destination for families and school groups for years. Now, we’re partnering with schools to host FUNdraisers to raise money for both your school and the Children’s Museum!

The Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry features eight hands-on interactives, including a two-story Medieval Castle, a life-sized Lowcountry Pirate Ship and a dedicated Art Room. Made just for children, The Publix Market is always bustling with shoppers and children hone their math skills as they weigh the amount of fruit they want to purchase or count currency to pay their grocery bills. Families will discover the wonder of water as they navigate boats through the Charleston Harbor in WaterWise!
