The Children’s Museum of The Lowcountry announced plans in May to build a 4,800-square-foot pavilion in their backyard at 25 Ann St. — the Charleston BAR gave its approval at the end of August.
The new addition is a part of the museum’s $6.2 million capital campaign, which will add “nine new state-of-the-art exhibits and expand play space outdoors with the creation of the play pavilion.”
The executive director of the museum, Nichole Myles, say the new pavilion will “transform the way children in the Lowcountry play,” support “healthy child development,” present kids with “educational opportunities,” and celebrate “the endless potential of childhood.”

The new space will allow the museum to expand outdoor exhibit space, including Port Go Go Go and Lottawatta Island. The pavilion will also serve as the new front entrance and public face for the museum.
