Welcome to The Sandbox

Hoping for some great one-on-one time with your kids this vacation? Looking to take a break from the sun with your little ones? Has the rain got your children going stir-crazy? Then you might want to check out The Sandbox, our Hilton Head Island interactive children’s museum.

Located just off Pope Avenue on the south end of the Island, this interactive museum provides a unique place for educational play between children and their parents, grandparents or caregivers. Little ones from infant to (8) eight will be captivated by the fun filled play centers and engaging activities.

In the event of rain or inclement weather during the summer months and sometimes in the off season/special holiday weeks, we tend to fill up very quickly thus filling fire code capacity.  Once filled, we start a wait list which you can add your name to once you are here (sorry we are a small non profit and hope to have an automated system in the future when funding allows!).  You must be here when your name is called, the wait can be anywhere between 10-15 minutes to 45-50 minutes depending how soon after we open we go on a waitlist. We apologize for any inconvenience!
