Coastal Discovery Museum

Mention Hilton Head Island and it often brings to mind picturesque stretches of shoreline made for sunbathing, swimming, and relaxing under the sun. While this vacation destination is certainly a place where it’s entirely possible to find these restorative moments—there’s even more to explore! Visitors headed this way will love that it’s a destination where it’s just as easy to engage the mind with fun educational moments. Perhaps no place here does it quite as well as the Coastal Discovery Museum.

Educational Discovery Redefined

The Coastal Discovery Museum is an inspiring family-friendly stop located at 70 Honey Horn Drive. The museum sits on 68 coastal acres of land and offers up exceptional programs, hikes, and exhibits to enjoy during a visit. The Coastal Discovery Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm with adjusted hours on Sundays from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. This learning center is designed to inspire visitors to care for the low country by offering up breathtaking insight into the region across 2,000 square feet of indoor exhibits. The concepts of preservation, celebration, and environmental education are all on full display for those who make time for a stop at this museum which has been in the area of over 35 years.

What to Check Out While You’re Here

Admission is free to the Coastal Discovery Museum and there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re spending time at the Discovery House or making the most of time on the ground trail systems, you’ll find there’s plenty to learn, see, and engage with along the way. This museum is built on a philosophy of hands-on learning that’s right for guests of all ages. Displays indoors cover everything from history and culture to art while time outside the museum offers up a chance to take in scenic surroundings and learn more about towering oaks that have dominated the landscape for decades. The museum hosts a kids’ zone, educational lab, and historical buildings to explore while you’re here. Don’t be surprised if you end up lingering longer than you originally planned!
