I have to confess, I lived on the island 10 years before visiting the museum. What a mistake! I now volunteer as a docent a few hours a month. People are always surprised at how long they stay.

I thought the museum offered a nice range of exhibits. There were definitely exhibits from the local area, plantations from Edisto Island, and other cultural and historical items. The fee was well worth it.

Very friendly and small well done museum. It even has an authentic room of a slave cabin. One room out of two shows just how much space they had to live in. The history of the island and cotton industry was educational. The display of...More
