  • Wonderful experience! Knowledgeable docents who tell the history around the powder magazine's importance during the American Revolution. Interesting! Older kids will really enjoy!

  • Best tourist attraction in town! Iconic, and the oldest municipal building in Charleston - 1713.

  • Great little building. The oldest in SC. Helps you understand the history of SC
