  • Do not leave without stopping by... We came to Edisto not sure what to find, but left so enriched. We left with cookbook, and history book. great little museum.  more »
  • I have to confess, I lived on the island 10 years before visiting the museum. What a mistake! I now volunteer as a docent a few hours a month. People are always surprised at how long they stay.  more »

  • Edisto Island has very nice and educational sites. The sites are a pleasure to visit especially in the off season. Nice museum.
  • Very detailed information, very professionally done, especially for only $5. I appreciate the history shows good and bad events of the whites and black Americans roles they played on the island. The artifacts were in excellent condition. Worth seeing if you like history.
  • Loved the musuem! The staff was very helpful, and the exhibits were informational and interesting. There is a small gift store with books and small gifts at the entrance. There is also a scavenger hunt to spot items for kids. We had a good time, and worth the admission!
  • This was a lot of fun. I personally loved it. The lady at the front was extremely nice.
  • Very good entertainment and educational. Also it is cool. Love the draws that pull out and have info sounds related to that, plus manipulatives. Also like the birds. They have feeders to attract local species. You can observe them from rocking chairs.
