I enjoyed this museum so much! There are items that belonged to the people and places that we learned about on the tours that we took. Well worth the time and money.

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.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit here. The ladies working the museum were very nice and informative. We enjoyed the scavenger hunts. The diorama was amazing. Enjoyed seeing the slave house - all very informative. So glad to see historical items retained and displayed. Our past is so important because it molds our future. Good visit. Recommend to all.

Plenty of great Edisto history. I would recommend stopping in when you're on the island.
We especially liked the original slave shack, its twin is in the Smithsonian.

Nice gift shop. Enough artifacts, photos, etc. relating to the founding families of Edisto to explain how the area was tamed and turned into a major cotton producing area. One room contains items related to the Civil War, another to the thousands of slaves who worked the land and made their masters wealthy.
