I'm a little late posting this, but we had so much fun that I wanted to make sure I did!
When the weather took a cloudy, cooler turn, we decided it would be a great day to explore the Museum of Coastal Carolina. Just a short walk from the Ocean Isle Inn, where we stayed, plus they have an incredible playground just outside.
They have many interactive exhibits inside. Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for preschoolers, and the twins were free.
This is a water table, so kids can study how the currents affect the sand.
Pierce called this room the underwater room.
With wavey lights playing off the walls, it does feel as though you are underwater.
I need a tripod.
And 3 boys who will stand still for 5 seconds.
This is a live salt water exhibit.
Pierce got to touch hermit crabs, sea urchins, and sea stars.
These are sea anemones, and they aren't touchable. After my jellyfish fiasco of 2008 I wasn't going anywhere near these guys!
Downstairs is the "Turtle Room". It's full of interactive fun.
Displays on sea turtles:
Hmmm, yes, so much for my idea of a nice shot of all 3 boys sitting in the boat.
An antique helm:
When you exit the museum, they have this display of a case of Civil War rifles.
They have to protect them by keeping them in water.
I found it interesting.
This charming museum is a great place to spend a few hours if you need to get out of the sun, or rain, or just want to experience an educational slant to Ocean Isle.
