  • If you like history, this is perfect, nice little gift shop and the staff is super helpful. If you go on a bulldog tour, admission is free. If you want to be wntertained, don't go. If you like to read and study history, it's a must stop.
  • $5 per person, $10 per group. Interesting building but not a lot to see.
  • Fantastic tour, great demonstrations, informed staff- a must see!
  • Extremely nice and helpful staff. Child friendly exhibits. My children are 2 and 5 and they had a good time. It is small, but don't let the size fool you. The displays are modern in appearance and very informative. Take the time to talk to the docents and you will be happy with their breadth of knowledge about Charleston. It is a great place to get out of the sun and enjoy a part of history with hands on exhibits.
  • A fun and educational stop. The interactive displays are a bit dated, but the information was easy to understand and truly fascinating. Caught the walking pirate tour out of here and loved it. Made Charleston a much more interesting place.
