The Sandbox Children’s Museum is committed to being here to support you and meet the needs of you and your child(ren) throughout these challenging times. To support families with children in grades K-4 enrolled in the BCSD, we are offering a museum school program. In small multi-age learning pods, children will have daily support for their virtual lessons in addition to enrichment in S.T.E.A.M., literacy, movement, and time for free play in the museum. Children will be grouped K-1, 2-4 with no more than 10 children per group with a maximum of children at the Hilton Head location of 15 and Tanger 2 location of 20. Children enrolled will have exclusive access to the museum during the weekdays.
With strict health and safety guidelines we will provide a school setting with supplemental hands-on learning and discovery through cool science (S.T.E.M.), literacy, art, movement, and music, on all BCSD school days from 8:15am – 3:15 pm.

The Sandbox is proud to be premiere destination for early childhood, hands-on play and learning in the Hilton Head and Bluffton area. Our flagship museum was founded in 2005 and our Tanger 2 satellite location in 2019. Our primary goal has been educating young children through age-appropriate, interactive activities and exhibits that enable children to play freely while exploring their creativity and discovering the world around them.
Located in the Tanger 2 shopping center between Bluffton Parkway and Hwy 278, The Sandbox at Tanger 2 is packed with 3500 square-feet of stimulating activities that are just right for busy toddlers, school-aged children through age 12 years and their families or caregivers.
In addition to our 11 hands-on exhibits we also offer:

The safety of our guest is our utmost concern and occasionally, during inclement weather, it is necessary to limit the number of visitors within the museum due to fire code capacity limits. Often times this only occurs during our busiest summer months, holidays or special events. Learn more ››
