We wanted to spend the day in Georgetown and had reviewed several options. We sort of stumbled upon the Kaminski and Stewart Parker houses. These were a very pleasant surprise.

Both the Kaminski and Parker Stewart house are well worth making the one stop. Parking is free and these historical homes contain treasures rarely see in small towns. Some of the furniture in these houses take the breath away. The docent who conducted our tour was wonderful. She knew a great deal about the various owners, their history, interactions with... More

Enjoyed this tour very much. The tour guide was very knowledgeable on the history of this house and all its owners. House was decorated beautifully. Glad we were able to take pictures on the inside of the mansion. The gardens were very well maintained. The length of the tour was just right. There is a second floor to tour so... More

I grew up in Georgetown, and I still love visiting the Kaminski House after all these years. It's such a lovely historical home staffed with knowledgeable docents to show you around and answer questions. The Christmas display is out of this world, so DEFINITELY make time for that if you're in the area at that time of the year. Can't... More

Our recent stop at the Kaminski House was hurried; we only had time to visit the excellent shop. But we toured the house several years ago and were very impressed with the fine antique furniture collection and memorabilia. The house has been further restored since our previous visit.

Built prior to the American Revolution showcasing a fine collection of 18th and 19th Century English and American decorative arts and furnishings including significant examples of Charleston cabinetry. This Kaminski House Museum is a teaching tool for presenting history. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas which added to the charm of the season! The house tour was well worth... More

A lovely house and grounds on the Georgetown SC waterfront. Beautifully and tastefully decked out for Christmas when I was there and with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide (Diann Odell) it was one of the highlights of my two week trip to the USA! Not to be missed!

The grounds were lovely. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The decor inside was an interesting mix of Revolutionary War, Civil War, and 1950s eras. The tour is about 1 hour long. You can walk all over the outside on the lawn for free. The only drawback to some photos was the uglier factory area on the river.

Interesting tour (1 1/2 hour) the house donated by family to remain just as furnished when owner donated to town. So you have museum quality antiques, acquired during international travels with mid century comforts such as dishwasher- early tv - exercise equipment. Worth $12 and time- small size tours and enjoyable tour guide ( sorry forgot her name). Sister and... More

They conduct tours of the museum. Location on the waterfront and end of the newly-created town's harbor walk! Located also at one end of the town's downtown/ Main Street which is surrounded by some restaurants, retail shopping and other activities. One must visit the museum if you visit this town. It makes for a good educational experience for the visitor.
