  • Very friendly staff. Packed with lots of extremely important and interesting historical information.
  • Admission was $5. Relics were of historical interest. Happy to see history preserved. Would give it 5 stars if they had a bigger cannon.
  • Awesome - Great displays and courteous folks..
  • This was a great museum devoted to the history of the Confederate military in South Carolina. They have great artifacts and if you love history, you will be well served to go and enjoy your time in this nice museum.
