Small history museum attached to the visitor's center. It's not that big, which could be good or bad depending on what you were looking for. We were hoping for some more information on the city itself, how it grew during colonial times, etc, but we...More

This was a nice little museum. They have a guy in revolutionary war costume who does a tour and fires a musket. I think if you love history you will enjoy it. Children would probably get bored very quickly. You can buy a combo ticket...More

I felt as if this museum didn't get the publicity it deserved. Very few of our shuttle drivers mentioned it, Our hotel didn't know much about it but am glad we went to see it.

Fairly small museum but packed with information about the area. Large section devoted to the Girl Scouts and their beginnings. Impressive dugout boat on display and it's historical timeline.

Not a good thing for the price. Went to see Forest Gump's bench. It was a very small museum for the price.

The museum itself is packed with tons of information in a small area. You must go on a guided tour, though, and proceed to the outdoor area, to get the full value. The guide's presentation is excellent.

Very informative, the renactment was great, it is well worth the stop, and reasonably priced. The staff was welcoming as was the entire city of savanna.
