Meet Eddie, the world’s largest child, at EdVenture

If you’re visiting EdVenture Children’s Museum, 211 Gervais St., Columbia, you can’t miss the chance to see Eddie. Standing 40-feet-tall and weighing in at 17.5 tons, Eddie is boasted to be “the world’s largest child.” The model of a 10-year-old boy is big enough for adults and children to explore, and visitors can climb Eddie’s vertebrae to his brain and explore his heart, stomach and intestines.

Eddie is the first thing you see when you enter the museum. It’s an ideal way for children to explore and burn off a little energy along the way. His giant shoe and the big chair positioned just to his right make for perfect spots for family pictures.
