  • The quality of historic artifacts is second to none. It was an emotional experience. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. This is a museum to visit again and again.
  • Small but a lot of artifacts ! People were nice and helpful. Taking photos is not permitted. $5. Free for military with ID.
  • Been coming to Charleston for over 40 yrs and never visited until this year. Very informative and a great display of our civil war history.
  • Interesting artifacts, but I would liked to have seen more of the documentation and history from the Confederate perspective. We had visited Ft. Sumpter earlier and wanted the other side of the story. Still, it was interesting to see the Confederate artifacts.
  • Very interesting, hoped to get more history, but the number of artifacts is amazing

Where to stay in Charleston

Charleston is serviced by dozens of local hotels and practically every major U.S. chain. Expect to pay top dollar for a room on the downtown peninsula, particularly if you wish to stay in one of the historic hotels. The upside of taking a room there is the proximity of all major attractions--you won't need a car to explore and enjoy your visit. Less expensive options are available in North Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant, where you'll find all kinds of inns for the budget-conscious traveler.
