Unfortunately, the Citadel Mall where this museum was located has basically evicted the museum to make room for a "large retailer" in the mall. The museum website states they will be relocating, but do not know where yet.

Free admission they only ask for a donation and it is totally worth it. Lots of different uniforms and memorabilia from the Revolutionary war to the present. Self guided; you can take as short or as long as you want to check out the collections....More

This museum is an amazing resource for people who have been in the military or are interested in military history. It's not flashy and I don't think there's a lot for children other than an impressive array of lead soldiers from all over the world...More

What a collection of uniforms and memorabilia collected by donations. This is at no cost to go in - but once you go through you will leave a $$$ donation. It takes you thru all the wars and the artifacts that were displayed were that...More

First, I applaud the all volunteer organization for organizing and running this museum and offering free admission. (Donations accepted and please do give if you visit!) My family and I visit Chuck often for medical appointments at MUSC so we've pretty much tapped out most...More

An excellent assortment of uniforms from throughout America's history, well presented, plus related items. We don't recall seeing a better array anywhere, and the admission price is attractive: free, although they appreciate donations. The museum store sells a variety of military-related books, new and used....More
