Obsessing over snow in Charleston? Then, you need to check out these c. 1899 snow photos from our Archives. Doesn't the Battery look bleak?!?!
These images of Charleston in the snow come to us from various photographers and donors - some with more information than others. Compiled weather statistics gave us a possible dates…there just has...

A wonderfully thorough presentation of the history of Charleston from before colonization through the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Prepare to spend a couple of hours there to take everything in. Well worth the admission cost, especially when paired with the Heyward-Washington House and Manigault House.

Large in size with a great collection of artifacts. I loved the recreated Hunley located outside the front entrance. You really learn how the state came to be, the effect of slavery, and the Civil War.

It's hard for me not to write an awesome review of the Charleston Museum. From Natural History, to Silver, to the Civil War, to the Rotating exhibits, everything in my mind is top notch. Where else in the united states can you view a preserved mummy, a full taxidermy leatherback sea turtle, some works of John Audubon...as well as a Civil war collection that peers many of the most renown museums in the nation. I love it. they also have very friendly staff and really solid weekly programming for kids and adults alike. History lives at the Charleston Museum!

New to the area and several people recommended checking out the museum. We had a terrific time. It is one of the oldest and neatest museums I have ever been to. Learned a lot about Charleston's rich history. We will be taking our kids back when they are old enough to appreciate it. Highly recommend!

This museum seemed small from the outside and on their online map, but in reality, it is actually quite large. It is filled with countless items. The main topics of items in the museum are the iron works in Charleston (then Charles Town), rice farming, The Revolutionary War, and The Civil War. They also have a child mummy and a section on animals which was quite fascinating. But you should know that you should put aside 3+ hours!

I had a great time here and learned a lot. It's got a nice walk through setup so you don't miss anything. Would recommend to anyone interested in history. It may have the capacity to bore children, though.

It would take an entire day to see and read all the exhibits here. I would recommend coming early and leaving for a break and coming back. It is nice that they will let you do that.
