Location is rather small, however it’s packed with lots of history for the history buff in us all. Even has a few touch and learn displays for the kids and adults as well.

What an unexpected surprise! This museum isn’t very big but it does contain multiple exhibits detailing Savannah’s history, the Civil and Revolutionary Wars, Forrest Gump's Bench, the industries within Savannah and the beginning of the Girl Scouts amongst other things. But that wasn’t the best...More

You can do this in just over an hour. Some well written storyboards. The Baldwin Locomotive was the centerpiece and informative. Great paid parking next door. The only negative was there isn't a AAA discount.

We appreciated the detail of the exhibits,very well done, presented with historic accuracy. Juliette Gordon Lowe's name is remembered by millions of Girl Scouts--but few knew as much as we learned in 2 hours!

We had no idea what to expect and were wonderfully surprised at the variety and detail of the exhibits in the museum. The 18 minute background film was good but maybe could use an update since it is now over 25 years old but the...More
