Visitors to the Spartanburg Art Museum can view great works of art and learn how to create their own artwork under the same roof. The museum’s permanent collection includes artwork that spans multiple mediums, including paintings, photography, textiles, and sculpture from noted artists such as August Cook, Francesco Bartolozzi, and other North and South Carolinian artists. Talented artists—many of whom hold degrees in their respective disciplines—lead the museum’s Art School, where they teach both kids and adults how to craft their own masterpieces. The museum also regularly welcomes rotating exhibitions, guest speakers, and special programs.

Hollywild Animal Park's family of animal lovers care for a stable of four-legged, photogenic stars. Dozens of resident critters include lions, a white tiger, and Tank, the white rhino best known for giving its spots to an outcast cow in an act of zoological altruism. Trips on the Outback Safari ride breeze past 70 acres of rolling terrain, and visitors can purchase feed to bestow upon hungry quadrupeds including fallow deer, zebras, and Scottish Highlanders. A specialized feeding area provides additional opportunities to bottle feed the next generation of mammalian stars, and a picnic area gives humans chances to gloat about opposable thumbs as they nosh nimbly on sandwiches.

Most people probably don't consider the television to be a danger to their fresh bouquet of flowers. But because it's an appliance that gives off heat, it can easily wilt or dry out blooms. This is the kind of expert advice doled out by the women of Valentin Occasions, who in their years of flower-shop ownership have perfected the challenging art of ensuring flowers last as long as possible. Their experience has made them adept at handling a variety of jobs—they can put together everything from bridal bouquets and corsages to birthday vases and casket sprays. They also deliver weekly to businesses after an onsite visit to determine the appropriate size and shape for reception or boardroom bouquets.

Hands On! A Child's Gallery is an interactive and educational museum for children age 1–10. Kids can cavort through a variety of exhibits that stimulate imaginations and sensory experiences in a safe environment that encourages learning. In the creative-arts area, little ones become artists, donning smocks or picking up part-time barista jobs, taking to easels, decorating a chalk wall, or embellishing a table with colorful dyed rice.

An 850-square-foot mountain, complete with waterfall, encourages kids to engage with aspects of the natural world including cause and effect. Interactive games impart lessons on dental hygiene at the toothy tango section. A large Lego ramp gives kids a venue for their own kid-built Lego cars. A music room hosts concentration and memory games and encourages kids to learn the sounds of different instruments. A miniature grocery store presents the chance to shop for nutritious meals, learn about budgets, and wander parking lots as they try to remember where they parked.
