This is a small but very worthwhile educational experience. Take the time to learn of the Gullah culture.

I took my mother who had wanted to go. Yes it is small, but most of the education comes from Mr. Rodriguez himself. I will admit after a part of the talk got bogged down with dates,I got restless, but the others that were there seemed fine. I think if you had any young ones they would need a shorter... More

We spent almost an hour trying to find it in Pawley's, only to discover they have moved to Georgetown. The couple who were there were fun to talk to and the woman spoke to us in Gullah, which I had never actually heard. We bought a book that I enjoyed reading about the history and experience of the Gullah people.... More

This is a very small space, and not necessarily what most would think of as a physical museum. But the information and experience come from the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Rodriguez. They are a wealth of knowledge and readily available to share their information. I highly recommend this museum to anyone interested in the Gullah Geechee heritage!!!

The only reason this is terrible is that it is closed. I had visited before, it was a two room museum that was so interesting I could have stayed all day instead of the three hours I was there for. Very sad that it is closed, the Gullah culture is fascinating, I hope it reopens again in the future.

As of the beginning of March, the Gullah museum has lost its lease and is looking for a new location. The day that a friend and I went looking for it, this wasn't noted on the web site, but it sppears to be now. Stay tuned.

Anyone interested in real American history, African-diaspora/Black history or in learning about little known cultures should not miss this museum. What a special experience to speak with the historian who had such a wealth of knowledge on the subject of the Gullah culture and history! I went with my 9 yr. old son and the lecture part was a bit... More

This is a must stop on your trip to Myrtle Beach. I enjoyed the history and I was amazed with the quilts.
