  • I feel that the information was presented in interesting exhibits. There was quite a bit more in there than I thought there would be and it took us a while because we enjoyed looking at it all.  more »
  • Very informative and well laid-out museum. I am surprised at some of the things that survived the war and are able to be displayed.  more »
  • I feel it should be laid to rest with the rest of history! Leave behind in the history books! It is 2018!  more »

  • Small but lots of items. Nice weapons selection. Revolution to WWII items. Price is very reasonable.
  • This was a fun museum and my fiance and I really enjoyed checking out all the exhibits. The museum itself is comprised of 4 separate stories, each story containing 3-5 different exhibits. There are also there different shows you can attend if you get the "Master Explorer Ticket" which cost approximately $12 per adult including a 4D show, a planetarium show, and an exhibit show. It was a fun day and we really enjoyed our experience. The ONLY reason this is getting 3 stars is due to my experiences with museum trips in cities such as San Diego, Washington D.C., and Norfolk which are vastly larger as would be expected.
  • The Confederate Relic Room is the finest museum in South Carolina. The displays are imaginative, and the scholarship is sound.
  • Incredible display of History. Admission very reasonable. Learned a lot!
  • Amazing! Worth visiting
