Things to do in Greenville SC: The Museums

If you can relate, I have good news for you. It would help you unwind to visit these fantastic museums in Greenville, South Carolina.


1. Upcountry History Museum

For our first trip, we have the "Upcountry History Museum" - Furman University, 540 Buncombe St, Greenville, SC. You'll be surprised because it had a great deal of information for a relatively small museum. This museum offered a good overview of the history of the upstate, beginning with the natives, to the early settlers, through American Revolution, to the Civil War and slavery to the industrial era with the textile mills to the rejuvenation of the Reedy River. Typically, when we hear the word museum, the first thing that comes into our mind is, that this is only for adults, but no. If you're a parent, they also have a kids' corner so that you can bring them along.


2. Sensational Sigal

Now, let's move on to our next stop, "Sensational Sigal," located at 516 Buncombe St Heritage Green Campus, Greenville, SC, where you can find the most fantastic collection of historically significant musical instruments. Whether you are a seasoned professional musician, an amateur musician, or just a non-musical person, you will find this collection very interesting and entertaining for the whole family! The Sigal Music Museum is a must-see! 


3. The Children's Museum of the Upstate

Today, we are in the world of the new age of technology. It has many benefits in our life, especially for our kids. 

However,  I know that there was a time when you were tired of seeing your kids being on their mobile devices all day. It's hard to stop them when they are at home. So, one of the best ways to solve this problem is to bring them into "The Children's Museum of the Upstate," located at 300 College St, Greenville, SC. This museum is one of the top 10 most prominent children's museums globally that features 18 exhibit galleries: the museum exhibit components and programs for children from birth to 15 years old. One great example is they have a grocery store wherein kid's can pretend that they are shopping while learning the value of money. Surely whatever career this young generation is going to take in the future, this lesson will always be helpful in any way.            


4. Greenville County Museum of Art   

For once in our life, I know that we all appreciate Arts whether you are an artist or not. The Greenville County Museum of Art is home to a nationally acclaimed collection of American art that ranges from Federal portraits to contemporary works, including major holdings of work by two of the greatest artists in the nation's history, Andrew Wyeth and Jasper Johns. They also offer workshops with some of the nation's top artists, so if you're studying Arts or any form of any related course, this museum at 420 College St, Greenville, SC, is a must-see.


5. Roper Mountain Science Center

Most of the time, when we talk about "museum," the keywords that always come into our mind are a building with a collection of history, culture, and art objects. 

But today, if you google the word museum, you'll be surprised that it also included the word "scientific." One great example is the "Roper Mountain Science Center," located at 402 Roper Mountain Rd, Greenville, SC. They have an environmental and sustainability building where everyone can learn the importance of water, ecology, biodiversity, and the stewardship of our natural resources. Other than that, they also have a hall of biological sciences where you can discover over 100 different animals. In addition to that, they also have "Dinosaur Adventure Trail," where you can find life-size models of dinosaurs which is most exciting for the kids. They have much more to offer, which would turn this short blog into a novel if we discuss them. Overall the best thing about "Roper Mountain Science Center" is they have a community that empowers the young generation to learn through science and technology.


To sum up, visiting whatever museum in Greenville South Carolina is always a good thing to do. You, your family, and your friends can learn while having fun.
