The history is amazing and the fact that this is still around is pretty cool! Can see by carriage or walking
A great historic attraction in downtown Charleston. The staff was friendly and informative. While the site is basically just one small building, the exhibits are informative and well presented. For anyone interested in Charleston history, this should be a must stop.
Tiny place, but full of history. Staff is very friendly and knowledgable... Able to answer all of our questions. We'd have never thought to stop here, but it was included in our pirate tour. Worth finding!
The museum is very small. The $5 entrance fee is a bit much for what you see, but it does help preserve history. It consists of some artifacts, hands on exhibits and several signs to read. My husband enjoyed the video game where he sank a pirate ship. The staff was very friendly and are happy to answer any questions.
The powder magazine is a great and inexpensive time in downtown Charleston.

Don't be discouraged by the size of this museum. It is truly delightful inside, with lots of interesting information.

The gift shop is small but the staff is friendly... More
This was a fun stop. It is very small, but it makes for a nice little stop along the way. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. This is a good stop for kids but was interesting for adults as well.
The cannons, muskets, guns etc.. Are a huge hit for little boys. We only stopped here due to the start of the pirate tour but it was a fun wait (don't say too often....). Well-curated gift shop
This museum is kind of neat and fun. However, I only gave it 3 stars because it is so small. For $5, I thought it should have had more. What was there was interesting, but it is really small.
A fun and educational stop. The interactive displays are a bit dated, but the information was easy to understand and truly fascinating. Caught the walking pirate tour out of here and loved it. Made Charleston a much more interesting place.
