  • The best little Museum in downtown Charleston
  • Very interesting and the staff is very knowledgeable
  • Small but informational.
  • Staff was great and gave a tour explaining the history of the building. Must see for history buffs.
  • 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.

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.
