Welcome to The Wonder Club!

Here at The Children’s Museum of the Upstate, we believe wholeheartedly in the power of “wonder.” That’s why it’s one of our six core values. We love it so much we created an entire club just to encourage young learners to follow their curiosity! Watch this video of our course line-up for summer 2024 and register below:
