The museum is very nice and clean. The exhibits are informative and fun. There is a theater where a movie shows some history of the area. 2 levels, clean restrooms, and a fun room for kids with lots of hands-on exhibits. This is not a large museum but still had enough to keep us busy for awhile. Worth the visit.... More

Used this museum for a Christmas party and we were very pleased. They have some rotating exhibits and the party goers can tour the museum. Staff is quite helpful.

I decided to take my four kids to the seasonal pirate/treasure exhibit. I was a little reluctant at first. I did not know if the exhibit would be stimulating enough to entertain my kids, but I was pleasantly surprised. My children loved it. There was so much for them to do. They were able to mine for fools gold and... More

Love the lay out of the museum, the history and the fantastic exhibits. They really take care in presenting the real history of that area of South Carolina. Well worth your time . Be sure and go to this museum while in Greenville.

My husband and I returned this afternoon from a 3-day stay in Greenville, and yesterday's visit to the Upcountry History Museum was one of the highlights of the trip. This beautiful museum highlighting the Upcountry is so well done - absolutely gorgeous facades of historical buildings (the courthouse facade is an exact "to-scale" replica), numerous "hands-on" features such as life-sized...

The permanent exhibits are enough to keep you coming back, with much information and interactive exhibits tell of the history and interesting facts about our past. Really like some of the additional exhibits that are there for a limited time. A fun place to visit.

We allotted only an hour here -- we had to leave before we were ready. Lots of neat exhibits for varied ages. We ranged in age from 18 to 50. We all wished we had more time there. I'd say that 2 hours would be good.

The Upcountry History Museum is the place to go if you want to know all of the history of the Upstate! Great venue to rent out for parties as well!
