This room was very interesting, and had a lot of information that i didn't know or i forgot it. The displays were so life like. The details were very accurate. It really held your attention.

This is a nice display for the Confederate Military very informative. Museum is larger than you think when you first walk in. We enjoyed listening to voices recorded about the Confederate Army. They also have a very nice gift shop.

A friend wanted to visit this place, so we went-I was not especially anxious to do so- and actually enjoyed the visit.

I made sure to visit the rustic room while onsite. The US military exhibits were amazing. The history in the documents, wardrobe, recordings, weapons & details will make any American proud.

Well worth the extra $4 in addition to the cost of the SC museum. It even has a small gift shop of its own. Great displays of war/military relics. It is located in same building as the SC museum.

The relic room is maintained by one of the oldest chapters of the Daughters of the Confederacy based in Charleston. It is fitting that this shrine to the valiant men and women of South Carolina is so positioned in the heart of this great city. Contributions are accepted in order to continue the work is restoration.

This had a lot of relics and regimental flags but, to me, my favorite part of the museum was a 25 minute film that featured stereo photos from the start to the end of the Civil War. That made the entire museum for me.

An insightful look at a turbulent period in our history. The use of diary and letter accounts from different players adds depth to the story of an event. It's not just artifacts but a retelling of the pain and suffering behind historical events.

A treasure trove for Civil War students...a book shop and gift shop are available. Some genealogical material is available.
